Game Story

CLEVELAND (Ticker) -- Shawn Kemp took advantage of Juwan Howard's absence by posting season highs of 32 points and 17 rebounds, leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to an 86-77 victory over the Washington Wizards.

Wesley Person contributed a season-high 24 points, including five 3-pointers, as Cleveland (19-18) moved into a tie with the Philadelphia 76ers for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

Kemp helped the Cavaliers erase a seven-point halftime deficit with 22 second-half points, including 10 during a decisive 12-1 run in the final minutes. He closed that spurt with two free throws, a 20-footer and layup that created an 83-73 cushion with 55 seconds to play.

"They have some pretty strong guys down low, and I wanted to spread it out a little bit," Kemp said. "I shot the ball pretty well in the second half, so I stayed with it."

"I just continue to be amazed at how Kemp is able to rise to the challenge, whatever it might be," said Cavs coach Mike Fratello. "He was obviously maybe at his best overall with what he did tonight."

Notching his top point total in two seasons with Cleveland, Kemp dominated the final 24 minutes as his counterpart at power forward was unable to go. Howard, the Wizards' second-leading scorer and top rebounder, was placed on the injured list Monday with a sprained left ankle suffered in Sunday's victory over the 76ers.

In addition, Washington lost veteran big man Terry Davis in the second quarter due to a bruised right calf.

"I thought in the second half, when Terry Davis couldn't play, that really hurt us," said Wizards coach Jim Brovelli. "We didn't have any inside presence at all. ... Losing both Terry Davis and Juwan inside, you don't have a low-post presence."

Kemp made just 3-of-10 shots and committed two turnovers in the first half. He came back in the second half to pull down 11 rebounds and hit all 10 of his foul shots.

Rod Strickland collected 19 points and seven assists but also committed six turnovers for Washington, which handed Cleveland its worst loss of the season on March 20 with a 113-83 rout.

Kemp scored just 15 points in that outing. He nearly equaled that total by collecting 12 in the third quarter of this contest as Cleveland began to come back.

"Last time we played Washington, I thought I had played on the post a little bit too much," Kemp added. "This time I wanted to go against them and spread my offense out and not just go the post on those guys."

The Wizards were held to just nine points in the fourth quarter of this meeting, going 3-of-15 from the field (20 percent) and missing 4-of-7 free throws. Strickland and fellow starting guard Mitch Richmond combined to hit only 1-of-7 in the period.

"It was neck and neck the whole time, but they just played a better fourth quarter than we did," Richmond said. "They got all the loose balls in the second half and they just beat us to the punch."

The Wizards led 47-41 early in the third quarter when the Cavs reeled off an 11-2 spurt. Andrew DeClercq scored seven of his 11 points in that run and Kemp had the other four, including a dunk that capped it for a 52-49 lead with 7:35 remaining.

Strickland's driving layup in the final minute gave Washington a 68-66 edge after three quarters. But the Wizards failed to get their offense going in the fourth, committing turnovers on their first three possessions and going scoreless until Randell Jackson's jumper with 6:09 left forged a 70-70 tie.

After a free throw by Person, Strickland drained a short jumper to give Washington its last lead. Kemp rebounded a miss by the Wizards' Calbert Cheaney and buried a 15-footer to trigger the pivotal burst and put Cleveland ahead for good, 73-72.

Richmond made just 5-of-16 from the floor for 16 points after collecting 29 in last month's victory over the Cavs.

"Every night, I guard the No. 2 guard and the key is to get the jump on them by hitting your shots first," said Person, who scored 16 points and hit four 3-pointers in the first half.

Otis Thorpe added 13 points and Ben Wallace had 10, 12 rebounds and six blocks for the Wizards, who have dropped five in a row on the road. Jackson, who started in place of Howard, scored just eight points on 3-of-11 shooting.

Cleveland ended a three-game losing streak to Washington despite playing without shooting guard Derek Anderson, who sat out with a sore left knee.
