Cavs ready for Thursday matchup of East’s elite

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio (AP)—LeBron James(notes) hopes Thursday's matchup with the Orlando Magic is as successful as his Super Bowl commercial with Dwight Howard(notes).

Cleveland, on a 12-game winning streak which is also the NBA's longest this season, can tie the franchise record with a victory in a rematch of last season's Eastern Conference finals.

It won't be easy. The Magic entered Wednesday's game at Chicago having won nine of their past 11.

"They're coming into our building, and right now we're the best team in the NBA," James said. "It's going to be a fun one."

  1. In his last 5 games he's averaged over 10 assists. He's really stepped up his passing since Mo and Delonte have been on the bench.

    Saturday, after going 47-8-8, he tied Larry Bird's career record of 10 games with at least 40+ points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists, but had reached 10 in about half the number of games.

    After the break they have another big game with Denver.

    NBA action... it's fantastic!
