Still, they have bigger goals: “Sunday night, the Cavaliers cut down the New Jersey Nets 96-88 at the Izod Center to tie the franchise record for most wins in a season held by the 1988-89 and 1991-92 teams that featured Mark Price, Brad Daugherty, Larry Nance and John ”Hot Rod” Williams. On the same night, one of Williams’ records fell as center Zydrunas Ilgauskas, fresh from reaching his 10,000th point Saturday afternoon against the Atlanta Hawks, broke the former Cav’s record for blocked shots at 1:33 in the second quarter, when he slapped his third on a reverse layup by the Nets’ Jarvis Hayes. Ilgauskas finished with four and holds the mark with 1,202. ‘When you’re on a bad team, you can’t enjoy it as much,’ he said of both marks. ‘So far, it’s been a special season and a lot of records have fallen. It means really nothing if you don’t win a championship.””
