Cleveland Cavaliers guard C.J. Miles made a bit of history on Tuesday night, hitting a franchise-record 10 three-pointers in a 111-93 win over the Philadelphia 76ers. He finished with a game-high 34 points on 11-of-18 shooting, including 10-of-14 from three. 

What's more impressive is that Miles matched the franchise record by drilling eight threes in the first half alone, tying previous record holders LeBron James, Wesley Person and Danny Ferry in the process. 

It was just the third time in his career that Miles had topped the 30-point threshold. 

If you've followed Miles' career closely, then you're aware he's prone to breaking out like this once a season.

On Dec. 29, 2012, Miles tied the previous franchise record by draining eight treys and scoring 33 points in a 103-100 loss to the Brooklyn Nets

Prior to that, Miles exploded for 40 points and six three-pointers when he was with the Utah Jazz in a win against the Minnesota Timberwolves in March 2011. He also canned seven treys against the Portland Trail Blazers back on Nov. 20, 2010. 

And if there was one team Miles was going to explode against, it had to be the Sixers. 

Brett Brown's club entered Tuesday night allowing the most three-point attempts and three-point field goals while ranking No. 22 overall in opponent's three-point field-goal percentage. 

In addition, the Sixers allowed the Portland Trail Blazers to sink a franchise-record 21 threes in a single game back on Dec. 14. 

According to Basketball-Reference, the Sixers have now allowed opponents to drill at least 13 threes in a single game 13 times this season after Miles accounted for 77 percent of the team's made triples on Tuesday night.
