Game Story

CLEVELAND (Ticker) -- Jalen Rose stuck a dagger deep into the playoff hopes of the Cleveland Cavaliers. Rose buried a 3-pointer with six-tenths of a second left as the Toronto Raptors handed the struggling Cavaliers their fifth straight loss, 87-86. "Everybody counts down 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, when you're playing against your big brother or the guy down the street," Rose said. "Everybody dreams of making a game-winning shot in the NBA. I was in that position today." The Cavaliers (32-45) have lost nine of their last 10 games and fell into 10th place in the Eastern Conference. They are three games behind eighth-place Boston with just five to play. "We easily could have gotten this win," said Cavaliers rookie LeBron James, who scored 21 points. "They played great when we played great. We can't fault ourselves for the outcome of the game." James scored the last six points for the Cavaliers, including two free throws with 11 seconds remaining that provided Cleveland an 86-84 lead. On Toronto's last possession, All-Star Vince Carter drove the lane and delivered a pass in the corner to Chris Bosh. The rookie rotated the ball to Morris Peterson, who found a wide-open Rose camped outside the arc. "We work on that play in practice every day, so we really know how much time it takes to swing the ball around," Rose said. "We were in rotation and didn't rotate properly and Jalen got a good look," Cleveland coach Paul Silas said. The shot staved off playoff elimination for the Raptors (31-46), who are four games back with five to play. "They came because it was national TV," O'Neill said. "Let's be honest." The Raptors led, 29-20, after one quarter behind Carter's 18 points. Carter finished with 32 points. "What a better stage than on TV, so we get a little exposure," Carter said. "We don't want to play bad on national TV." Cleveland stormed back in the third period by scoring the first nine points to tie the contest at 53-53 and took a 63-61 edge into the final period, holding Toronto to just eight third-quarter points. Rose scored nine of his 15 points in the final period for Toronto, which won the season series, 3-1. Carlos Boozer added 18 and 15 rebounds for Cleveland. Point guard Jeff McInnis played his first game since being placed on the injured list March 27 with a bone bruise in his right hand and collected 16 points and 10 assists. "It just hurts because we worked so hard in this game," McInnis said. "We played good defense we thought."
