Cavaliers match more records during historic March

The Cavaliers have been the NBA's best team all-season.  LeBron James has been the NBA's best player all season.  Perhaps it is fitting that both had the best month the Association has seen in a long, long time.

  • The Cavaliers as a team tied two League records last night when they beat the Pistons -
  • The Cavaliers now lead the Central Division by 25 games, equaling a mark set by the Boston Celtics last season.
  • The Cavs went 16-1 in March, becoming the 6th team in NBA history to win 16 games in a month.  The 1996 San Antonio Spurs were a perfect 16-0 in March, 1996.
  • LeBron James also made some history in March becoming the first player since Oscar Robertson in January 1965 to score at least 479 points, 152 rebounds and 143 assists in a month.  Anyone think LBJ is NOT the MVP?

All that is great, but it is what the Cavaliers do in May and June that is important.  That said, it sure is fun to be a part of all this history as a Cavs fan!
