The Hornets cut Cleveland's 20-point lead to 11 but James re-entered the game and made an immediate impact with a few more highlight-reel plays.
On the season, the Heat are averaging 103.3 points, 43.0 rebounds and 22.8 assists per game.
James has scored 6,163 points in postseason play, and will get a chance to build upon that total when the NBA Playoffs get underway in two weeks.
The 33-year-old James matched Michael Jordan's streak of 866 consecutive double-digit scoring games Wednesday night, scoring 41 points to help the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Jordan-owned Charlotte Hornets 118-105 and remain in third place in the Eastern Conference.
Jordan, the Hornets' majority owner, didn't attend Wednesday's game, which ended with the hoop-savvy Charlotte crowd standing to salute and serenade James with chants of "M-V-P!" Jeff Green added 18 points and Rodney Hood scored 13. One, he needed only 28 minutes to score like that.
Without a father in his life, James viewed Jordan as a role model and tonight the indomitable Cleveland Cavaliers star, playing at an MVP level in his 15th National Basketball Association season, likely will surpass a record held by a player he once admired "like a god".

This has many implications, as "CC-1" has supposedly forced her slaves to pose nude in photos, and is a "direct slave" of Rainier. A whistleblower from the group, Frank Parlato , believes that Mack will be arrested in connection with the group.
Dwayne Wade recorded 12 points and four blocks as the Heat held the Cavaliers to a season-low in points, at just just 36.8 percent shooting. This is also why he's near the bottom quintile guarding spot-up shooters (1.13 points per possession, 21st percentile).
It was great for Miami, ghastly for Cleveland.
Swain said that before deciding whether Take-Two committed copyright infringement, she wanted to know how the "average lay observer" would see the tattoos while playing the game, and how prominent the tattoos actually were. He briefly returned to the floor, but experienced concussion-like symptoms at halftime. But Miami was still up 75-59 going into the fourth, after Wade - moments after checking in for the first time in about an hour of real time - connected on a step-back jumper with 17 seconds left in the third.
Dan Shulman, Dick Vitale, Bill Walton and Jay Bilas were on hand to call the game, which got more than 1.5 million viewers, the second most in ESPN2's history at the time. It was his first time playing at Miami since March 19, 2016.
"Coach (Tyronn) Lue will make that decision when he comes back", interim head coach Larry Drew said of the playoff rotation.
"He's [LeBron] one of the game's greatest players". The only Cavs to play in all three meetings were James, J.R. Smith and Tristan Thompson. They now sit as the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference ahead of the reigning champions Golden State Warriors. After road games at Atlanta and NY, the Heat then finish at home against Oklahoma City and Toronto.
