In a thrilling Game 7 showdown against the Cleveland Cavaliers, Orlando Magic's rising star Paolo Banchero made history by shattering a scoring record previously held by LeBron James.

Throughout the intense playoff series, Banchero's performance has been nothing short of impressive, averaging 25.2 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 4.3 assists per game across six games. 

This stellar performance has put the Magic on the brink of their first playoff series victory since 2010. However, it was in the first half of Game 7 where Banchero truly stole the spotlight.

The former Duke standout exploded for an astonishing 24 points, setting a new record for the most points scored by a player aged 21 or younger in a Game 7 in NBA history.

The significance of Banchero's achievement was not lost on Cleveland fans, as he surpassed the record previously held by none other than Cavaliers' legend LeBron James. James had scored 21 points in Game 7 of the 2006 Eastern Conference semifinals against the Detroit Pistons.

Despite Cleveland's valiant effort to stage a comeback in the second half, Orlando fans will undoubtedly remember Banchero's heroic performance, win or lose.
