Cavs Nation Poll Question
So far this season, the Wine and Gold have had some spectacular individual scoring performances. In fact, four different Cavaliers have scored over 30+ points, the first time that feat has been accomplished since the 2001-02 season (Andre Miller - 37, Lamond Murray - 40, Wesley Person - 33, Ricky Davis 35).
With all these dynamic performances, we ask you...
Which Cavalier 30+ point performance has been your favorite so far this season?
- Dion's 33 pts at SAC
The rookie from Syracuse was dominant against the Kings – going 12-of-18 from the floor, including 3-of-3 from beyond the arc on his way to a career-high 33 points.
Waiters saved his best for last, NEARLY WILLING the Wine and Gold to a road win by scoring 16 of 33 points in the final quarter.
Not only was Waiters SCORING AT WILL, but the freshman guard was getting his teammates involved as he dished out a team-high five assists.
- Andy's 35 pts at BKN
The Wild Thing was RUNNING WILD against the Nets in mid-November, scoring at will and chasing down seemingly every loose ball and rebound.
Varejao got off to a fast start, posting 17 points and seven boards in the first quarter and didn’t slow down from there. When it was all SAID AND DONE, the eight-year big man finished with a career-high 35 points to go with 18 boards (11 offensive) three assists and a pair of steals. Varejao shot an efficient 16-of-21 from the floor including a prefect 3-for-3 from the free-throw line.
The last Cav to record at least 35 points and 18 rebounds was Zydrunas Ilgauskas on Nov. 3, 2004.
- C.J.'s 33 pts at BKN
C.J. Miles was almost unstoppable on DECEMBER 29TH IN BROOKLYN, going 11-for-15 from the floor and 8-of-10 from beyond the arc for a team-high 33 points. In the midst of Miles' three-point barrage, he became the first player in Cavaliers history to make eight triples off the bench.
The eight-year veteran netted 13 of his 33 points in the second quarter to keep the Cavaliers in the game. He then notched eight points in the fourth quarter as the Wine and Gold nearly overcome a big early deficit.
“The game slows down and the basket seems as big as the arena," commented Miles following the game. CLICK HERE to find out what else Miles had to say about his performance.
- Kyrie's 41 pts at NYC
With the Cavaliers trailing by 10 in the fourth quarter, Kyrie Irving – playing in a PROTECTIVE MASK – simply exploded, scoring 17 of his career-high 41 points in the final period.
Irving, who didn’t travel with the team after suffering a facial injury the night prior, was 15-for-25 from the floor, including 5-for-8 from beyond the arc.
The reigning Rookie of the Year netted 27 of his 41 POINTS after intermission – adding five helpers and five boards.
