Father Time might be undefeated but LeBron James appears ready to provide him with his greatest bout yet.
James, who has seemingly dominated the league for 30 years, was clutch-as-hell and generally exceptional in Denver on Wednesday.
He dropped 39 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds, finishing with nine straight points and two deadly fade aways in the dying moments, ripping Denver’s hearts out of their collective chests in the process.
"What can't he do?!"

LeBron is performing so well, in fact, he said after the final buzzer that his game was “Probably at an all-time high.”
“Just because of my body, my mind, the way I go out and approach the game,” he told ESPN after the game.
“And then just the grace of god giving me the ability to do this. I’m just blessed and I never take it for granted.”
LeBron has been reinvigorated and on an absolute tear since the Cavs turned over almost half their roster at the trade deadline, averaging 30 points, 9.8 assists and 9.7 rebounds over the past four games.
Despite turning 34 this year, James is fourth in the league in points and second in assists.
When James finally slows down is anyone’s guess.
Unfortunately for Denver, it certainly wasn’t tonight.
