Williams, Jazz Edge Cavaliers for Sixth Straight Win




Utah 99, Cleveland 98

SALT LAKE CITY, Feb. 14 (AP) -- Gordan Giricek smothered LeBron James throughout the fourth quarter and helped hold the Cleveland star to four points in the final period.

However, it was Giricek's final defensive play in Utah's 99-98 win Wednesday night that bothered the Cavaliers the most.

Giricek collided with Sasha Pavlovic before Pavlovic got off a 37-foot shot that missed at the buzzer. The Cavaliers thought he was fouled and stood in disbelief after the buzzer when none of the officials blew a whistles.

"He dribbled the basketball and Giricek tried to take a charge and he slid to the side and he fouled him with time on the clock,'' Cleveland coach Mike Brown said. "Maybe that's too tough a position for the refs to be in to make that type of call. Watching the replay, it was a foul and it's unfortunate for us.''

The Jazz were badly outrebounded and made just 60 percent of their free throws, but the held James to just eight points in the second half and beat Cleveland for the first time in nearly three years.

Utah has won six straight entering the All-Star break. Deron Williams scored a career-high 33 points and had 12 assists for Utah and Giricek - not known for his defensive play - held James to 1-for-5 shooting in the fourth quarter.

"Gira did a great job on him,'' Williams said. "We know who's hands the ball's going into and he stepped up and did a great job defending him.''

The Jazz improved to 6-1 since leading-scorer and rebounder Carlos Boozer - the former Cavalier - was knocked out of the lineup with a small fracture in his left leg.

Boozer sat behind the Utah bench and saw a thrilling finish.

Cleveland had a final chance after Williams missed a runner with about 5 seconds left and Pavlovic got the loose ball and heaved a shot after running into Giricek.

Pavlovic, James and Anderson Varejao lamented after there was no foul called and the Jazz celebrated the victory.

"Sasha's going full speed and a guy bumps him,'' James said. "I mean, no matter what type of game it is, I think that it's a foul.''

James finished with 23 points and Larry Hughes scored 33 for the Cavaliers.

Varejao pulled down 17 rebounds and James and Drew Gooden had 10 boards apiece as the Cavaliers outrebounded the Jazz 49-37. But James didn't make a field goal in the fourth quarter until 1:15 remained as Cleveland tried frantically to rally after falling behind 97-89 on an 8-0 run by the Jazz.

Mehmet Okur scored 11 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter and Andrei Kirilenko added 10 points and three blocks for the Jazz.

Giricek finished with eight points and one steal. Coach Jerry Sloan left him in for the entire fourth quarter - when Giricek is usually on the Jazz bench, especially in close games.

"There's times where I maybe should have played him a little bit more,'' Sloan said. "I stuck with him tonight because I thought he was doing a fairly decent job.''

After Hughes tied it at 89-89 on two free throws with 3:34 left, Okur scored five during the 8-0 run over the next minute and a half.

James then made two free throws and a layup - his first field goal of the fourth quarter - to get Cleveland to 97-93. Varejao added a layup to cut the margin to two, then after Williams hit a 19-footer for the Jazz, Pavlovic made a 3 to get the Cavs within 99-98 with 28 seconds left.

Williams tried to milk as much of the shot clock as he could and got off a runner that bounced off the rim. Paul Millsap almost corralled the rebound for Utah, but knocked it outside and Pavlovic was there to grab it on the run.

Pavlovic and Giricek collided right at the Jazz logo and Pavlovic got his shot off just before the buzzer, but was off.

Notes: Cavs G Daniel Gibson sprained a toe and did not play in the second half. He was listed as doubtful for Thursday's game against the Lakers. ... Cleveland had swept the last two seasons against the Jazz. ... Williams' previous career high was 31 points on Jan. 17 at Detroit. ... Kirilenko's three blocks gave him 1,002 for his career. ... The Jazz were just 14-for-23 from the foul line while the Cavs weren't much better, going 21-for-29. James was 5-for-9 from the line and scored just eight points in the second half.

Help, not just anybody

The Cavs must improve on free throws and bench play at least, and a trade may be needed to finish among the best in the East
Tuesday, February 20, 2007
Branson Wright
Plain Dealer Reporter

All the fun and games associated with NBA All-Star Weekend are over, and now it's back to business for the Cavaliers and the rest of the teams jockeying for playoff position.

The Cavs have the second-best record (31-22) in the Eastern Conference behind the Detroit Pistons (32-19), but in no way is that an indication they can rest on their laurels. The Pistons are in front, but the Toronto Raptors, Washington Wizards and Miami Heat are closing fast.

The second half of the season is not easy. The Cavs are at the Raptors on Wednesday followed by Thursday's game against the Chicago Bulls. They end the week at Miami, and next Thursday play at the Dallas Mavericks -- the best team in the league.

To stay ahead of the pack and remain one of the top seeds, the Cavs need to improve in several areas where they struggled prior to the All-Star break. They remain the worst free-throw shooting team in the league. Bench play has been spotty, and although the offense has found new life, it often sputtered.

A trade would provide relief, and the Cavs have inquired with several teams about possible deals that include everyone on the roster, with the exception of LeBron James. Several teams have expressed an interest in Anderson Varejao, but management is reluctant to make that deal.

The Cavs made several moves in the first half that contributed to their recent success. One in particular is point guard Daniel "Boobie" Gibson. But Gibson is not ready to lead the team during the postseason. That would mean making a deal for a veteran point guard, especially since the team has given up on Eric Snow as a starter.

There are plenty of quality point guards available. The Nets have shopped Jason Kidd, Sacramento's Mike Bibby can opt out of his deal at the end of the season and if the Knicks don't buy out Steve Francis, he could be available. The Cavs have lukewarm interest in Memphis' Damon Stoudamire, Charlotte's Brevin Knight and Phoenix's Marcus Banks. The NBA trading deadline is 3 p.m. Thursday.

A deal for a point guard won't get the Cavs off the hook. There are areas they need to improve on if they want to become a factor in the postseason. That means James and Larry Hughes, the team's best slashers, need to take fewer jump shots, and coach Mike Brown has to improve on his offensive rotation. It was such an up-and-down first half that Brown, when forced, gave his team a "C" grade.

"We were average [in the first half] because we were inconsistent, and we didn't quite have the understanding that we need to have, but we're headed that way," Brown said. "To be an elite team, we have to understand it starts and ends with defense, and we have to execute in the other areas."

Looking back even further, poor execution during the West Coast swing in January resulted in a 3-4 trip. The Cavs returned home in the middle of a 2-6 slump. This month has included two wins over the Lakers, a split with Miami and a non-competitive 90-78 loss to the Pistons at home.

That's when James and many of his teammates became outspoken about opening up the offense and - in particular - running more. Brown agreed, but remained firm about keeping defense on top of the list.

"We have to defend to win ballgames first," Brown said. "Secondly, we have to share the ball and move better without the ball and just do the little things offensively."

Brown helped pump new life into the offense when he made Gibson the starting point guard and added Sasha Pavlovic to the rotation. The changes led to four wins in five games before the All-Star break. Their last game, the 114-108 win over the Lakers in Los Angeles, was their best of the season.

Brown hopes that carries over for the drive to the playoffs.

"I hope we win all 29 games," Brown said. "I'm actually not thinking about where we're seeded in the playoffs or anything like that. I'm focused on us improving and become more consistent on both sides of the ball."

Varejao’s Follow Dunk Lifts Cavs Past Raptors
By ROB GILLIES, Associated Press Writer


Cleveland 86, Toronto 85

TORONTO, Feb. 21 (AP) -- Anderson Varejao's dunk over Chris Bosh upstaged LeBron James and put some distance between Cleveland and Toronto in the standings.

James scored 29 points and Varejao slammed home teammate Sasha Pavlovic's missed shot with 16 seconds left to lift the Cavaliers to an 86-85 victory over the Raptors on Wednesday night.

Varejao had 16 points and 15 rebounds for the second-place Cavaliers, who moved three games ahead of Toronto in the Eastern Conference. Indiana also beat Milwaukee night to overtake Toronto for fourth.

A double-teamed James passed to an open Pavlovic, whose 3-point attempt hit the rim before Varejao emphatically dunked it before falling to the floor for the final points of the game.

"That was definitely the play of the game. I had the best dunk until Andy decided to do that," James said with a smile.

"It was a game-winner. He timed it just right," James said.

Varejao finished 8-for-9 from the field. He had his second straight double-double in place of starting center Zydrunas Ilgauskas, who missed his fourth consecutive game because of a family health matter.

Varejao said he guessed when and where the rebound would be.

"I saw him, but I went behind him," Varejao said of Bosh. "I took the rebound and put it down."

Bosh had 24 points and 10 rebounds and Andrea Bargnani scored 18 points for the Raptors, whose eight-game home winning streak ended.

Toronto's T.J. Ford missed badly on a layup and Morris Peterson missed a jumper at the buzzer.

"You have to give Anderson credit, he just kicked our butt," Toronto coach Sam Mitchell said. "We didn't put a body on him and he just beat us out."

After James' dunk gave Cleveland a four-point lead, Toronto followed with a 6-0 run capped by Anthony Parker's 3-pointer.

But James made two straight jumpers to cut Toronto's lead to one with just over a minute left.

Bargnani missed badly on a 3-pointer and Bosh missed a 20-foot jumper before Varejao gave Cleveland the lead for good.

"It was definitely a big win," Cleveland's Larry Hughes said. "They've playing well, especially at home. They've moved way up in the standings."

James went 3-for-10 and had 10 points at halftime, but he heated up in the third quarter -- scoring 10 points in the first five minutes of the period.

Notes: Cleveland coach Mike Brown said general manager Danny Ferry called him Tuesday night to tell him nothing was going on ahead of Thursday's trade deadline. ... Guard Damon Jones missed the game because of strep throat. ... Benetton Treviso owner Gilberto Benetton sat courtside next to Toronto assistant general manager Maurizio Gherardini, the former GM of Benetton.
