Game Story

ATLANTA (Ticker) -- LeBron James took over late, enabling the Cleveland Cavaliers to continue their winning ways. James scored 34 points, including five straight in the final 75 seconds, to lead the Cavaliers to their season-high fourth straight victory, a 108-102 triumph over the Atlanta Hawks. With Cleveland trailing 100-99, James made a tough, hanging layup to put his team ahead for good. He then buried 3-of-4 free throws to give Cleveland a 104-100 cushion with 32 seconds left. "It just shows how far we've come," James said. "We got a big lead, but regrouped and had a strong second half." Cleveland scored 34 points on 13-of-19 shooting to take a 34-17 lead after one quarter. The lead ballooned to 20 at 39-19 early in the second quarter before Atlanta closed the period with a 32-11 run to seize a 51-50 halftime advantage. "We got up big early, but we weren't going at it defensively," Cleveland coach Paul Silas said. "In the second quarter, they came with it and we were just walking around out there." The game turned at the 10:33 mark in the second quarter when Stephen Jackson picked up a flagrant foul by pushing James to the floor with two hands. Carlos Boozer, on the bench at the time, took exception as he and Jackson exchanged words. Just over a minute later, Jackson was assessed a technical foul for jawing with the Cavaliers bench and that was when Atlanta began its run. "It's one of those things where Jackson was trying to fire his team up," Boozer said. "He did a good job with it." The victory vaulted Cleveland (28-36) into a tie with the Boston Celtics for seventh place in the Eastern Conference. Boozer collected 25 points and 11 rebounds and Zydrunas Ilgauskas added 20 and eight for the Cavaliers, who went 3-1 against the Hawks this season. Jackson matched a career high with 30 points and Chris Crawford added 25 for the Hawks, who have lost three in straight. "We had a chance to win in the fourth quarter, but we turned the ball over a couple of times and that lead to their baskets," Crawford said. "You can't do that going down the stretch if you want to win games."
