LeBron James reveals how much he slept night before dominating Magic

LeBron James led the Los Angeles Lakers to a 106-94 win over the Orlando Magic and later credited good rest for his performance. "I slept last night from 12 [a.m.] to 8 [a.m.], I got up, ate breakfast and went back to sleep from 8:30 [a.m.] to 12:30 [p.m.]," James said after pacing the Lakers with 30 points on 12-for-20 shooting, 11 rebounds, 10 assists and three blocks in 37 minutes against Orlando.

James was asked how sustainable his recent burst can be. "Who me? How do I continue how I'm playing? Been doing it for 19 years," he said. "Just do what I've been doing. I feel like I'm getting better and better each and every day.

I'm getting healthier and healthier." James is not concerned with his age as he just wants to play basketball. "That's just my mindset. Don't get involved in how many minutes I played, how many days off," James said.

"I don't confine to that. I think you think negative thoughts or negative energy, it just creeps into your mind. So, I'm as young as I've ever been."

James did it all for the Lakers

"When he's just being aggressive, he's aggressive in making the right plays and reads, our team's different," Russell Westbrook said of James.

"Tonight was another night where he imposed his will." Talen Horton-Tucker, 21, was asked what it's like playing alongside someone that is 16 nearly years older. "It gives me energy because you see him doing it at 36," said Horton-Tucker, who added two of his six steals in that dominant third quarter.

"It gives me no excuse to kind of do the same thing back." Lakers head coach Frank Vogel is impressed with what four-time NBA champion James is able to do even at this age. "Nothing feels like it's limited resources with him," Vogel said.

"Just the way he plays, that's the way we have to be. That's Lakers basketball. It doesn't matter who our opponent is, what their record is, what the situation is. We want to play harder than our opponent. "That's who we've been the last couple years.

It hasn't always been there for us this year. And I think our guys recognize that. They're trying to play at that championship level. Trying to build those championship habits in regular-season games. He's setting a great tone for us in that regard."
