Road trip exhausting, successful

The Cavaliers' 3-1 road trip is one that will build character. They got blown out on the first game of the trip in Houston, and then posted three consecutive wins.

All four teams they faced are solid playoff teams. San Antonio and Houston - under the right circumstances - could be NBA championship contenders.

Here are some numbers to devour:

X The Cavs are 4-0 when Mo Williams has 30 or more points. It's the third time in his career he's had at least 30 points, seven rebounds and seven assists.

X It was the Cavs' 21st road win of the season, which ties for second most all-time with the 1995-96 team.

X They are 29-0 when they score 100 or more points.

X They are an NBA-best 12-2 on the second night of a back-to-back set, a truly impressive stat.

X Guard/forward Sasha Pavlovic made his first appearance in nine games. He's recovered faster than anyone thought from his high ankle sprain.
