Game Story

CLEVELAND (Ticker) -- The Cleveland Cavaliers did not do a whole lot in the first half of the third quarter. The Orlando Magic did even less.

In the first 5 1/2 minutes of the period, the Cavaliers scored eight points and held the Magic scoreless en route to an easy 102-90 victory.

Cleveland took a 55-51 lead into halftime and began the third quarter with a 10-footer by Mark Bryant. Brevin Knight drained a 20-footer with 9:45 left for a 59-51 advantage and Shawn Kemp hit four free throws to push the lead to 12.

While the Cavaliers methodically built their lead, the Magic were self-destructing. Turnovers and missed shots plagued the Magic, who finally got a basket from Darrell Armstrong with 6:32 remaining in the quarter.

"Coming out of halftime I thought that our energy level was as good as it has been in terms of coming out after them," said Cavaliers coach Randy Wittman. "We kind of put ourselves in a position where they felt they had to really scramble going into the fourth quarter."

Lamond Murray scored 24 points and grabbed nine rebounds and Kemp added 20 and 14 for Cleveland, which has strung together back-to-back wins after a five-game losing streak.

"I think our defense -- we stopped them and were able to push the ball and get easy buckets on the offensive end," Murray said. "I think that was the big difference, just playing good defense against them and forcing them to take jumpers and rebounding and pushing it."

"It just feels good to win," Kemp said. "We've lost 25 games, it just feels good to win."

Armstrong scored 21 points and Tariq Abdul-Wahad added 17 for Orlando, which committed 28 turnovers and saw its three-game winning streak snapped.

"Twenty-eight turnovers," Magic coach Doc Rivers. "I would say 20 of the 28 were unforced turnovers. I don't mind when you turn it over 28 times because a team presses you and force the turnover. But we gave 20 of them away."

The Magic lost for the first time in three meetings between the teams this season.

Orlando trailed 38-36 following a dunk by rookie Corey Maggette with 8:02 left in the opening half. But rookie Andre Miller buried a 14-footer, Danny Ferry sank a 3-pointer and Kemp had a dunk with 6:28 to go. Bob Sura sank a free throw for a 46-36 lead before capping the burst with another free throw with 5:11 remaining.

Abdul-Wahad's 21-footer from the left wing sliced the deficit to 55-51 at the half but the Magic committed three turnovers and were 0-for-7 from the field in the first 5:28 of the third quarter. Abdul-Wahad missed four shots in the drought.

"Turnovers and defense," Armstrong said. "I really don't have an excuse, I don't think we brought the energy like we should. We brought it in spurts. We're going to be all right."

"That's what we have been missing in the third quarter, stopping them," Cavaliers forward Cedric Henderson said. "We'll come into halftime with big leads and then come out in the third quarter and flop. Tonight, we came in and guys were more dedicated on the defensive end."

A short jumper by Maggette moved Orlando within 63-59 with 5 1/2 minutes left in the quarter but Cleveland scored the next nine points. Kemp and Murray had four apiece during the burst that sealed the Magic's fate.

Orlando made one last gasp and got within 78-70 with 9:43 left but Ferry and Andrew DeClercq hit two free throws apiece 25 seconds apart and the Magic never got within single digits thereafter.

Orlando's starting frontcourt of Bo Outlaw, Ben Wallace and John Amaechi combined for six points on 2-of-12 shooting and 11 fouls.
