LeBron James did not lose confidence during the Heat's minor slump this past week.
After scoring 61 points in a game, LeBron scored just 60 over the next week.
During that span, the Heat went 0-3.
Before Monday night's game, LeBron was out on the court more than two hours before tip-off.
His hard work paid off.
LeBron scored 23 points on 10/15 shooting in Miami's win over Washington.
James said, "For me, I'm confident in my ability, I knew I'd make shots. I wasn't stressing about the shooting slump."
LeBron said he received a text the morning before the game from a relative who asked how he was doing.
LeBron replied, "I'm excited about what today brings, that's what I'm focused on... That's my mindset."
