Game Story

CLEVELAND (Ticker) -- On a night when the Cleveland Cavaliers and Milwaukee Bucks put on an offensive show, it was a defensive play that decided the outcome.

Bob Sura knocked the ball away from a driving Sam Cassell with 1.1 seconds remaining as the Cavaliers hung on for a 117-112 victory.

After Shawn Kemp hit two foul shots to snap a 112-112 tie with 6.2 seconds to go, the Bucks got the ball into the hands of Cassell, who drove hard into the lane.

Sura came up with the steal, resulting in a technical foul on Cassell, who argued for a foul on the play. Brevin Knight converted the technical foul shot and two more free throws nine-tenths of a second later, giving Cleveland a five-point cushion.

The Cavaliers rebounded from Thursday's 109-103 loss to Seattle that snapped a three-game winning streak.

"Obviously, I'm thrilled to death with the win," Cleveland coach Randy Wittman said. "Our intesity was night and day between tonight and the game we lost to Seattle Thursday."

Sura scored a season-high 23 points but only two in the final quarter. Knight contributed 18 points and Kemp collected 14 and 12 rebounds.

"Bobby is running the lane really well," Wittman added. "I don't know how many layups he got tonight, but that is the key to his game. That gets Bobby energized."

Glenn Robinson scored 32 points and Cassell and Ray Allen added 22 apiece for the Bucks, who took their last lead at 110-109 on Cassell's jumper with 1:10 remaining.

The lead changed hands seven times in a wild fourth quarter in which the Cavs outscored the Bucks, 35-29. Cedric Henderson's 18-footer with 1:09 to play put Cleveland ahead before he hit 1-of-2 from the line 33 seconds later to make it 112-110.

Bucks coach George Karl was furious with his team's defensive effort. Cleveland shot 47 percent (38-of-81) and outscored Milwaukee 44-36 in the paint.

"You can't win giving up 35 points in the fourth quarter," Karl said. "You don't deserve to win. It's insulting to me how bad we played defense."

"We broke down too many times," Cassell added. "It was another game we were supposed to win but we didn't."

The Cavaliers dominated the first half, opening their biggest lead at 60-44 on rookie Andre Miller's foul shot with 1:26 left in the second quarter.

"If our guys don't recognize now that we have to come out and play with high energy every night, I think it is evident," Wittman said. "I told our guys if we can do that we will be in every game."

Sura's 3-pointer gave Cleveland a 76-63 lead with 8:01 remaining in the third quarter before the Bucks began slicing into the deficit.

Milwaukee closed the period with a 13-2 run, opening an 83-82 lead on Haywoode Workman's 3-pointer with 1:27 remaining. The lead see-sawed in the fourth quarter, when neither club had more than a five-point advantage.

"We came out strong to start the third quarter," Knight said. "We just didn't finish it well. I take some of that blame for picking up my fourth foul and not being out there to get the guys going."

Knight's five-footer and rookie Trajan Langdon's 3-pointer gave the Cavaliers a 99-94 lead with 7:10 to play. But the Bucks quickly answered on Robinson's two foul shots and Cassell's 3-pointer.

"I think watching the films of the last game with Seattle pumped us up," Knight said. "We weren't out there playing. We kind of backed off a lot and weren't intense."

Milwaukee shot 45 percent (38-of-84) and committed 22 turnovers that CLeveland converted into 26 points. The Bucks' bench was outscored, 50-25.

At halftime, the Cavs retired the uniform No. 25 of Mark Price, who played nine seasons in Cleveland from 1986-95.
