Game Story

CLEVELAND (Ticker) -- Shawn Kemp's return to Cleveland was not pretty.

Andre Miller scored 18 points and the Cleveland Cavaliers rolled to an 84-58 embarrassment of the Portland Trail Blazers, who were held to a franchise low.

Greeted by persistent booing every time he touched the ball, Kemp had just four points in 20 minutes. He was playing at Gund Arena for the first time since August, when he ended up with the Blazers as part of a three-team trade.

"Its not the first time that I've been booed." Kemp said after making 2-of-8 shots. "I've been playing for a while and I've heard a couple of boos in my career. We played them a week ago and they were waiting for us, I'm sure. They had a good showing tonight and they did a good job."

Portland shot 28 percent (21-of-75) from the field and committed 15 turnovers, compared to just 14 assists.

Blazers' starters made only 13-of-48 shots. Forward Rasheed Wallace, the team's leading scorer with 19.8 points per game, was held to 12 on 5-of-17 shooting.

The Cavs never trailed after Miller's basket broke a 2-2 tie with 10:29 left in the first quarter. They blew it open early in the third.

Cleveland scored the first eight points of the second half and built a 45-24 cushion on Miller's 15-foot jumper with just over 10 minutes to play in the third quarter.

Cleveland avenged Tuesday's 103-83 and won for just the third time in 11 games.

"That was as good an effort we have had defensively in a long time," Cavs coach Randy Wittman said. "I thought in Portland we gave them too much respect. I told them tonight we are not coming out that way. We had to make it difficult for them for 48 minutes, and we did that tonight."

A layup by Arvydas Sabonis capped an 8-0 run and got the Blazers within 47-36 with 5:21 left in the period. But that was a close as they got as the Cavs made six straight free throws including four tech's near the end of the quarter.

With 1:40 to play, Portland coach Mike Dunleavy was ejected after being called for two technical fouls for arguing a foul on Wallace. Minutes later, debris was tossed at Kemp on the sideline, prompting his teammates to react before security escorted fans away from the Portland bench.

"I'm not the first person that came here and it didn't work, And I won't be the last person," Kemp said. "This team here (Portland) is the best team for me to put a ring on my finger at this point in time. That's pretty much all that is left."

Jim Jackson scored 15 points against his former team and Chris Gatling also had 15 for Cleveland, which has posted back-to-back home wins for the first time since mid-December.

Wallace, Steve Smith and Stacey Augmon each scored 12 points but were a combined 13-of-31 from the field for the Blazers, who fell to 11-3 against the Central Division.

"I don't know if it's a combination of a long trip to the East Coast or that we played these guys last week and took them lightly or whatever," Dunleavy said. "From an intensity level and focus, we fell right into their hands. We settled for jump shots as opposed to attacking the rim. On a scale of one to 10, it's a bad 10. I don't know what else you can do. It went off the scales as far as I was concerned. Who knows, we probably broke all kinds of records tonight."

The Blazers were brutal in the first half, making only 6-of-33 field goals (18 percent), as they fell behind by 15 points. Portland matched a franchise low for first-half points and a season low with nine in the second quarter as they went into the break, trailing, 39-24.

"They can say what they want about their 28 perecent shooting," Wittman said. "But the majority of their shots, we had a hand right in their face."

Asked if he thought the Blazers might have taken the Cavs lightly, Cleveland guard Bimbo Coles said, "I don't know and I don't care. Hopefully, the next team that comes in here does the same thing. We're all about getting `Ws' right now, and if a team wants to take us lightly, so be it."
