Game Recap

In a preview of next week's opening round playoff series, Zydrunas Ilgauskas scored 26 points as the Cleveland Cavaliers snapped the Indiana Pacers' seven-game winning streak with a 96-92 victory.

Shawn Kemp added 18 points and 15 rebounds for the Cavaliers, who evened the season series with Indiana at two wins apiece. The Cavaliers won for the 10th time in their last 14 games overall.

"We went out there tonight and treated it like any other game," Kemp said. "I don't think we sat around and worried about who was on the floor. We just went out and tried to win like we always do."

Jalen Rose scored 26 points and Travis Best netted 21 for Indiana, which was looking to match the longest winning streak in club history. The Pacers won eight straight from April 11th-23rd, 1994.

Indiana, which finished with a club-record 58 wins and the second-best record in the Eastern Conference, will have homecourt advantage against the sixth-seeded Cavaliers when the playoffs begin.

Indiana coach Larry Bird talked about his team's upcoming playoff matchup with the Cavaliers.

"Even though they (the Cavaliers) are young doesn't mean they can't play basketball," he said. "They are very aggressive. It's also going to be a new experience for me. But I like playoff time and that's what it's all about."

After Best made a layup to put the Pacers ahead 90-89 with 3:34 to play, Bob Sura answered with a layup of his own to regain the lead for the Cavaliers.

Rose, who scored 12 of his points in the final period, sank a jumper to give the Pacers a 92-91 lead with 3:00 to go before Brevin Knight hit a 15-footer to put the Cavs ahead to stay with 2:16 to play. Ilgauskas made a short jumper to push the lead to 95-92 with 1:35 to go and he sank one of two free throws with 64 seconds left to give the Cavs the winning margin.

Ilgauskas connected on 11-of-19 shots from the floor for the Cavaliers, who shot 51 percent (38-of-74) and held a 42-27 rebounding edge.

"I'm not sure if you hold too much to what the statistics showed tonight," Cleveland coach Mike Fratello said. "But I much rather finish up by winning the last game rather than losing. It's better to have a win than to go into the playoffs with three straight losses."

The Pacers held a 25-20 lead after one quarter and pushed the lead to 43-36 on Best's jumper with 5:51 to play before intermission. But the Cavs used a 10-2 spurt, capped by Ilgauskas' layup, for a 46-45 lead. Cleveland led 52-50 at the half.
