Game Story

CLEVELAND (Ticker) -- Shawn Kemp missed most of the first quarter with an injury but returned to spark a big second quarter with 10 points as the Cleveland Cavaliers ended the Milwaukee Bucks' four-game winning streak with a 98-74 victory.

Kemp was dazed after taking an accidental elbow above the left eye from Milwaukee forward Glenn Robinson 70 seconds into the game. Kemp had to be wheeled off the court but returned with 8:27 left in the second period after receiving eight stitches to close a cut. He scored six points during a decisive 18-6 spurt that gave Cleveland a 54-40 lead 48 seconds before halftime.

"I took a big hit. I just want to get some rest," said Kemp, who left with 3:25 remaining in the third quarter and did not return. "I have a bit of a headache but I think I'll be allright."

"I'm anxious to hear how the preliminary X-rays on Shawn Kemp were," Cavaliers coach Mike Fratello said. "I want to make sure everything else is fine besides whatever he received as far as stitches go. He's a special guy to come back out and play. I'm not a doctor but it was a pretty wide-open cut."

Wesley Person scored 20 points, making 4-of-7 3-pointers, and Andrew DeClercq matched a career high with 17 points for the Cavaliers, who moved back above .500 at 16-15. Cleveland has won 15 of the last 19 meetings with Milwaukee.

"When you get your main scorer going out in the first quarter, you look for your entire group to come back and get some points any way you can," Person said. "Once he (Kemp) went down, I felt I had to step up and hit some shots until we got him back. He came back and gave us a lift. I just knew when I shot the ball it was going in. I approach every shot like it's going in."

"When Wesley is hitting his perimiter shots we are a different team," Fratello said. "When he gets going, it's a big plus for us."

DeClercq also had 17 points for the Boston Celtics against Vancouver on February 18, 1998.

"We always need to be ready to go and do what we can when he's not out there," DeClercq said. "We did a great job of moving the ball around and exploiting the things the Bucks were trying to do defensivley. I just have to credit my teammates for getting the ball to me. The guys came out and curtailed the Bucks' offense."

Tim Thomas had 16 points and rookie Robert Traylor added 14 for the Bucks, who were trying for a fourth straight road win for the first time since the 1988-89 season. Robinson and Ray Allen combined to shoot 3-for-20 from the field, finishing with 10 points.

"We didn't do much of anything all night long. It seemed like the last two or three minutes of the first half we kind of gave them the lead," Milwaukee coach George Karl said. "We shot the ball so poorly in the third quarter and we never got any confidence as they built a bigger lead. We didn't have any energy. Cleveland played with a lot of zip and they're showing they want to make the push for the playoffs."

Allem missed all eight shots from the field, finishing with two points.

"I don't think it's ever happened," Allen said about his shooting. "There are nights when things just don't go right. I think I had good shots and good looks at the basket, they just didn't go down for me."

With the score tied at 36-36 and 5:24 left in the first half, the Cavs used an 18-4 run to take control. Kemp scored six points in the surge and Johnny Newman added five as Cleveland grabbed a 54-40 lead. The Cavaliers settled for a 54-42 advantage at the break.

Thomas' tip-in with 11:20 left in the third quarter drew the Bucks within 56-44, but Cleveland answered with a 13-2 burst for commanding 69-46 cushion with 7:12 to play in the period. Cleveland shot 50 percent (9-of-18) in the third qaurter, while Milwaukee was a dismal 25 percent (5-of-20).

The Cavs held their biggest lead at 93-68 with 4:08 to go on Cedric Henderson's three-point play.

Henderson had 15 points and five rebounds and Brevin Knight added seven and nine assists for the Cavs, who held a 49-36 rebounding advantage.

Dell Curry scored 12 points and Chris Gatling contributed nine and six boards for the Bucks, who entered as the league's best 3-point shooting team (40 percent) but connected on only 2-of-11 from beyond the arc.
