Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- The Cleveland Cavaliers were happy with their first win at the Delta Center. The news about LeBron James was even better. After losing James to a sprained ankle injury in the final minute of regulation, Carlos Boozer scored 10 of his career-high 32 points in overtime as the Cavaliers snapped a 13-game road losing streak to the Utah Jazz with a 102-96 victory. Cleveland rallied from an 18-point deficit and forced overtime on the same play it lost James. The rookie phenom missed a layup, but Ira Newble secured the rebound and was fouled, making 1-of-2 free throws to forge an 85-85 tie with 12 seconds left. James, who had 29 points, fell to the floor after missing the shot and was helped off while favoring his right leg. The injury is not considered serious and he is expected to play in Tuesday's game against Seattle. "It feels good," he said. "I just came down hard. I got banged up but I was able to keep getting up. I'm all right, looking forward to playing on Tuesday." The injury left the Cavaliers without their two best players after center Zydrunas Ilgauskas was ejected in the third quarter. "I knew someone was going to step up," James said. "Once we went into overtime, I knew we had enough firepower that somebody was going to step up and push us to win." Boozer picked up the slack, scoring eight consecutive points to give Cleveland the lead for good. Utah's Michael Ruffin missed a game-tying layup with 11 seconds left and Boozer grabbed his 18th rebound before sealing the game with a pair of free throws. "I was just being aggressive and the ball was bouncing the right way," Boozer said. "LeBron's a huge part of our offense. Everybody had to pick it up. Everybody was making their free throws and concentrating on getting rebounds." The Cavaliers won in Salt Lake City for the first time since December 11, 1989 and the first ever in 13 trips to the Delta Center. They improved to 4-19 on the road this season. "Carlos Boozer was exceptional. Without him, there is no way this could have happened," Cleveland coach Paul Silas said. "I am just proud of the guys. They hung in there without LeBron." Andrei Kirilenko scored 27 points, including seven in overtime, and Raja Bell added 20 as Utah fell to 17-4 at home this season. "We had control of the ball game but then we put ourselves in a situation where we just got to hanging out," Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said. "I think we could have won the game if we had been able to stay with it and keep our focus." The Jazz had a 16-point lead midway through the third quarter when center Greg Ostertag got into shoving match with Ilgauskas and both were ejected. The altercation sparked the Cavaliers, who became more physical and closed regulation with a 19-5 run. "It was pretty big," Bell said. "He was our force in the middle and when we lost him they just had no fear of going in our paint." "We really started playing after that happened," James said. "I kind of took over the fourth and Boozer took over in overtime. That's what we need." Boozer led Cleveland to an overwhelming 52-33 rebounding advantage and the Cavaliers scored 17 points off 17 offensive boards.
