C.J. Miles Sets Franchise Record
On the coldest night of the year (Jan. 7), Cavaliers starting shooting guard, C.J. Miles, was absolutely scalding – setting the Cavaliers franchise record with 10 three-pointers, just two shy of the NBA mark.
Miles finished with 34 points, going 10-for-14 from long-distance to go with five boards, two assists and a pair of steals.
The eight-year veteran was white-hot from the first time he touched the ball – canning his first six three-pointers and setting the franchise record for treys in a half. He tied the franchise mark for three-pointers in a game when he hit his eighth bomb with 2:16 to play in the second quarter, went on to score on a traditional three-point play early in the third, then proceeded to hit two more trifectas to wrap up his record-setting night.

HE CAN SHOOT FOR MILES AND MILES
- C.J. Miles recorded a season-high 34 points on 11-18 (.611) shooting, including a career-high 10-14 (.714) from the three-point line, five rebounds, two assists and two steals in 31 minutes in the win over Philadelphia on Jan. 7.
- The 10 made three-pointers are a Cavaliers record for a single game (Previous record: 8, four times).
- Miles is the first ever Cavaliers player to record two games of at least eight made three-pointers. He also nailed eight triples at Brooklyn on Dec. 29, 2012.
- Miles went a perfect 5-5 from the three-point line in the first quarter, which ties the team record for most made three-point shots in a single quarter. The last NBA player to shoot perfect from the three-point line in a quarter (min. 5 3PA) was Monta Ellis (MIL vs. ORL 3/17/13 5-5, 4th Q).
- C.J. Miles’ eight three-pointers in the first half are also a Cavs record for most three-pointers in a single half (Previous record: 6, four times). The only other players in NBA history who made eight threes in a first half were Kobe Bryant (in 2003), Tracy McGrady (in 2004) and Deron Williams (who set the NBA record of nine in a half - any half - last March).
