Game Story

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (Ticker) -- Down the stretch, the Charlotte Hornets played defense that would have made Bobby Phills proud.

On a night where Phills' No. 13 was retired, the Hornets used two steals and a block to fuel a late 8-0 burst that gave them a 103-95 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Phills, a defensive-minded guard and Charlotte's spiritual leader, died in an automobile accident on January 13 less than two miles from Charlotte Coliseum. He became the first player in franchise history to have his number retired.

"After the halftime ceremony, we just wanted to go out and play even harder because that's the way Bobby played," said Hornets All-Star guard Eddie Jones, who scored 32 points. "He would have been proud."

The halftime ceremony featured a two-minute video tribute that included footage of Phills playing for Southern University, the Cavaliers and the Hornets. The team presented framed jerseys to Phills' wife, Kendall, and his parents.

"It was a special night tonight," Hornets coach Paul Silas said. "It should bring closure to a tragic situation. We've been through adversity but we're coming out of it now."

"I think even if Coach Silas didn't let us come out for the ceremony, we still would have all been out there," Jones said. "Bobby is gone, but he is still with us. There was nothing that would have kept us from the court when his jersey was raised."

Phills' son, Bobby Ray III, and his brother raised the banner with the large No. 13 to the rafters of the arena. Kendall Phills announced she was starting the Bobby Phills Scholarship Fund and contributed $100,000, with the team adding another $135,000.

"It was a little tough tonight," Hornets center Elden Campbell said. "We're trying to act normal but something like tonight reminds us how much we miss him. He was a great person."

"We loved Bobby dearly but as Kendall said, `Bobby would have wanted us to carry on,'" Silas said.

David Wesley scored 30 points for the Hornets (27-20), who enter the All-Star break with a sparkling 20-3 home mark and one more win than they had in last season's lockout-shortened campaign. Wesley was drag racing with Phills seconds before the accident.

"It was important that David came out and did well," Silas said. He played well all-around. He had (five) assists, he went to the line 12 times and he made big hoops when we needed them."

Two free throws by Shawn Kemp, who collected 16 points and 11 rebounds, pulled the Cavs within 90-87 with 1:59 remaining. Jones, who made 12-of-19 shots, answered with a jumper and the NBA steals leader stole a pass by Kemp and drew a foul. His two free throws pushed the lead to 94-87 with 1:32 to go.

Derrick Coleman blocked a shot by Cavs rookie Andre Miller and Wesley made two foul shots with 1:21 left. Wesley followed with a steal and fed Coleman for a dunk and a 98-87 lead with 1:05 to play.

Coleman scored 21 points and Campbell grabbed 10 rebounds for the Hornets, who shot 47 percent (36-of-76) and made 27-of-34 free throws. Wesley had five steals and Jones added four.

Lamond Murray scored 31 points and Miller added 14 and 12 assists for the Cavs, who shot 43 percent (38-of-89) and held a 50-39 rebounding edge.

Shorthanded Cleveland has lost nine straight road games. For the third straight game, the Cavs were without their starting backcourt of Brevin Knight (quadriceps tendinitis) and Bob Sura (sprained toe).

"There really is not too much to complain about concerning our effort," Cavs coach Randy Wittman said. "We have to continually play with this effort and enthusiasm."

Cleveland heads to the All-Star break with a 19-30 mark. In last season's lockout-shortened campaign, the Cavs went 22-28.

Jones scored 14 points as Charlotte grabbed a 30-29 lead after one quarter. The Hornets took the lead for good at 40-39 on a free throw by rookie Baron Davis with 5:40 left in the second quarter.

Charlotte led 50-45 at halftime and scored the first eight points of the third quarter. Wesley scored 12 points in the period, which ended with the Hornets holding a 72-62 lead.
