LeBron James produced quite the stat line yesterday to help his Cleveland Cavaliers claim victory over the Orlando Magic 115-106 on their home court. Along with his 32 points, James was able to collect eight rebounds, 13 assists and two steals. The league’s hottest team has now won 13 straight, improving their home record to an impressive 24-3.
Dwight Howard led the Magic with 19 points and 11 rebounds, mostly produced when the other ‘Superman,’ Shaquille O’Neal was sidelined due to foul trouble. Shaq came up with 10 points and six rebounds in just 19 minutes played.
O’Neal later decided to take a few shots at Howard after the game, saying “I don’t really consider it manning up until you play me straight up. I’ve never doubled anybody. So you tell me who the real Superman is.” The Magic will next take on the Detroit Pistons after the NBA All-Star break on Wednesday, February 17th as the Cavaliers play host to the Denver Nuggets the following day.
