Game Story

TORONTO (Ticker) -- Zydruans Ilgauskas and the Cleveland Cavaliers are turning it on of late. Ilgauskas scored 30 points on 13-of-18 shooting as the Cavaliers extended their season-high winning streak to five games with a 106-92 triumph over the Toronto Raptors. Carlos Boozer added 11 points and 13 rebounds for the Cavaliers, who had not won five straight games since a six-game tear December 5-16, 2000. "They are feeding off one another and beginning to trust one another," Cleveland coach Paul Silas said. "When that comes, that's a magical thing. ... I didn't think we'd be where we are right now, come together as quickly as we have. The chemistry is good. Everyone is rooting for each other. That's what it takes." "We were right at the bottom with almost no hope," said Ilgauskas, whose team was 11-26 on January 12. "We made a couple of trades and now we're right back in the picture. It would be a great comeback." Cleveland (29-36), which moved into a tie for sixth place in the Eastern Conference, saw a 17-point second-quarter lead dwindle to 70-67 after a layup by Toronto's Rod Strickland with 4:04 left in the third period. But Cavaliers reserve Lee Nailon, who scored 15 points, converted a three-point play 19 seconds later to trigger an 11-0 run, and Toronto got no closer than 11 points in the final 12 minutes. "We knew they were going to make a run, because we could never push it 20 or more, and then we staved them off and that was huge for our confidence and for our team," Silas said. "We have been playing tough games, winning them, but down the stretch of games we just haven't gotten the cushion that we need. Tonight we were able to." "We gave ourselves a chance in the third quarter and then let them go on a 7- or 8-0 run that really put us back in a hole that we couldn't get out of," Raptors coach Kevin O'Neill said. Vince Carter scored 19 points and Donyell Marshall added 18 and 12 rebounds for the Raptors, who allowed the Cavaliers to shoot 52 percent (42-of-81). "That's a team that's playing great basketball right now," O'Neill said of the Cavaliers. "They are hitting on all cylinders and they wore us down." Toronto (27-38) has lost 13 of 15 to slip into a tie for 10th place in the East. The Raptors had no answer for Ilgauskas inside in the first half, allowing him to score 18 points on 9-of-11 shooting. "I made my first five or six shots, which made it a lot easier for us," Ilgauskas said. "I shot the ball with confidence and it was one of those nights where they were going in." "He is a thorn in our side," Carter said. "When things went bad they went to Ilgauskas and he got it done."
