Having fun with numbers

Huge win for the Cavs on Tuesday over Orlando. The Magic could face Boston in the second round and that's going to be an awesome series.

Don't overlook the Magic in the playoffs. They have the needed ingredients to make it to the NBA Finals. Boston is starting to fade and the Magic will likely finish ahead of the Celtics in the Eastern Conference.

Here's a different look at the game:

X The Cavs are 54-13, tying for the third most wins in a season. They won 54 games in 1992-93 and 57 in both 1988-89 and 1991-92.

X In their six-game winning streak, they are averaging 104.3 points and shooting 46.5 percent from the field. They are holding their opponents to 98.7 points and 44.8 percent shooting.

X The Cavs are 14-2 since the All-Star break, the best in the NBA.

X LeBron James recorded his ninth 40-point, 10-rebound game of his career.

X James' 43 points were the most ever scored in the Cavs-Magic rivalry. It surpassed the 41 points scored by Tracy McGrady against the Cavs on Dec. 25, 2003.

X The Cavs are 13-0 when they record 10 or more steals.
