Fun night in Disney World
Even a basketball sage like myself knew something was up when Cavaliers guard Larry Hughes scored 33 points in the second half of Monday's game. It was one off the team record set by LeBron James (34 in Toronto on Jan. 6).
The superlatives were fast and furious on Monday in Orlando:
X Hughes scored 23 points in the third quarter, one off the franchise mark.
X His 40-point outburst was his Cavs' high.
X It was only four points shy of his career high of 44 set on April 9, 2000, against Denver when he played for Golden State.
X He's averaged 19.7 points and 4.9 rebounds in his last seven games. He’s reached double figures in all seven of those games.
