Cavs tie franchise record with 13th consecutive win

From FOX Sports - December 6, 2017

If you asked Cavaliers fans just three weeks ago, after a 5-7 start, if theCavs would find themselves just 3.5 games behind the 22-4 Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference,they might ask back what kind of winning streak did they go on.

Well, the answer is a franchise record tying 13-game winning streak. With that 5-7 start, the Cavs have now reeled off 13 straight wins to move to 18-7 and are playing some of their best basketball this early in the season in LeBron James second tenure with the Cavs.

In Wednesdays 101-95 win over the Sacramento Kings, the Cavs started off sluggish but Kyle Korvers three straight 3-pointers to begin the fourth quarter led to another MVP-like finish from The King. James finished with 32 points, 11 rebounds and 9 assists and a step back three pointer to ice the game. That late 3-pointer was with St. Vincent-St. Mary alumJaKarr Sampson guarding him, and in his postgame comments, James made sure he let Sampson know how the Class of 03 does things.

"This is my time."@KingJames wanted the ball in his hands to deliver the win for the @cavs, while getting one over a fellow Akron-native. #AllForOne
