Game Story

CLEVELAND (Ticker) -- Vitaly Potapenko, starting for the injured Zydrunas Ilgauskas, scored 16 points as the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Orlando Magic, 90-78, for their third straight victory.

With Ilgauskas nursing a mild sprain of his left foot, Potapenko was called on to make just his fourth career start. But the third-year pro shot 8-of-12 from the field, grabbed four rebounds and handed out three assists.

"I knew I was going to start at the shootaround and I was a little nervous at the beginning," Potapenko said. "Even when I came off the bench, I always try to play aggressive and attack the other team. The game just came to me and when I got an open shot, I knocked it down. Today, it seemed like we were running hard and passing the ball and that's why I got open shots in good position."

"Vitaly scored pretty much throughout his career as a college player and we've seen him have some big nights here," Cavaliers coach Mike Fratello said. "He makes that shot facing up and you combine that with the other stuff ... he's going to be able to put points on the board for you."

Orlando forward Horace Grant also had high praise for Potapenko.

"He's a very good player. He's very physical and his outside shot has improved. He's going to be a force to reckon with. I think he came in and gave them the lift they needed."

Shawn Kemp tallied 18 points and eight rebounds and Johnny Newman added 15 points, including 3-of-3 from 3-point range, for Cleveland, which has held opponents to an average of 81.3 points during its winning streak.

"I'm really proud of the effort they gave tonight," Fratello said. "It was a real strong performance against a real good basketball team. The disappointing thing is that we had so many turnovers in the second half. But that's a credit to Orlando. We had some turnovers that were unnecessary but the fact that we hung on and got the win makes it a good night."

"If I had a good look, I was going to shoot," Newman said. "I wanted the ball and I wanted to get more involved in the offense. I know this league and I knew my shots were coming. I'm not only a jump shooter, I can drive to the basket."

Derek Strong collected 14 points and 10 boards and Isaac Austin contributed 12 points for the Magic, who had a four-game winning streak snapped. Star guard Penny Hardaway was a non-factor, totaling just 10 points on 4-of-15 shooting.

"The Cavs went to the trap that they run, they had four or five days to work on it and Fratello has had it in his arsenal for years but hasn't used it this year," Magic coach Chuck Daly said. "But he had time to work on it. The Cavs were a step quicker all night and they executed better than we did. When we got down 20, we pressured as much as we could and got back in it. But we kept missing shots. All you have to do is look at the stats."

The Cavs were the rested team and it showed early as they scored 14 straight points for a 14-2 lead midway through the first quarter. Cleveland shot 57 percent (12-of-21) in the opening 12 minutes and held Orlando to just 21 percent (3-of-14) for a 29-14 cushion after one.

Kemp's dunk with 7:25 left in the second quarter built Cleveland's lead to 38-18, but the Magic reeled off nine straight points to close within 38-27. The Cavs settled for a 50-37 advantage at the break.

Orlando made it close in the third quarter, getting six straight points from Austin to pull within 54-49 with 7:10 to play. But Bobby Sura came off the bench to hit a 3-pointer and Potapenko made a jumper for a 59-49 lead with 4:47 to go.

Austin's jumper with 3:43 remaining in the third got the Magic within 59-53, but Newman hit a 3-pointer and Sura's driving layup gave Cleveland a 64-55 lead. Orlando got no closer than nine points the rest of the way.

Wesley Person scored 12 points, eight in the first quarter, and Derek Anderson added 11 for the Cavs, who shot 53 percent (34-of-64) from the field and made 8-of-11 3-pointers.

Bo Outlaw collected 11 points and eight rebounds for the Magic, who shot just 37 percent (28-of-76), but had an 18-5 edge on the offensive glass.
