Game Story

CLEVELAND (Ticker) -- Jason Kidd could not provide the New Jersey Nets more late-game heroics, and the reason was LeBron James. Kidd hit another big 3-pointer in the fourth quarter but James scored 27 points and made more plays down the stretch as the Cleveland Cavaliers posted a 103-97 victory over the Nets. Down nine points at the half and badly outplayed in the paint, the Nets battled back in the second half and held an 89-87 lead with 5:30 to play. From there, the Cavaliers went on a 12-4 run to take a 99-93 lead with 1:20 remaining. James scored six points in the final 3 1/2 minutes and capped the run with a thunderous one-handed jam off a steal. New Jersey's Richard Jefferson was looking for Kidd, who spotted up outside the arc, but never saw James, who streaked in and went in for the dunk. "I've been doing it all year," James said. "I saw the play happening, it was a back screen for Jason Kidd. The guy had just hit a three and I was in the right position to get the steal and turn the game. It was a big momentum play." New Jersey was within 100-97 and in need of a stop when James came through with another big play. He drove to the block and after drawing a double-team kicked out to ex-Net Lucious Harris, who nailed a 3-pointer to ice the game. "Lebron, as usual, draws three or four people to him, and I just spotted up from the corner and knocked the shot down," Harris said. "It always feels good to beat the old guys. How could you ask for anything more then to hit one of the decisive baskets against your former team?" "If anybody wanted that shot on this team, it was (Harris)," James said. "To make that against the team he played with last year, that was big for him." Harris scored 11 points in 21 minutes off the bench for the Cavs. Over the past five games, Harris is shooting 53 percent (18-of-34) from the field and averaging 9.6 points. "Lucious was a very, very valuable member and Cleveland is very lucky to have him," Nets coach Lawrence Frank said. Jefferson scored 27 points for the Nets, who dropped their seventh consecutive road game. "We were doing the best we could," Cavaliers coach Paul Silas said. "But you certainly can't stop the guy." Kidd, who returned Monday and helped spark a win over Toronto, scored 10 points in 20 minutes. His 3-pointer with 2:28 left pulled New Jersey within 93-92. "He looks great," Frank said. "I think the fact that he is moving as fast as he is (shows) so much promise." Led by Zydrunas Ilgauskas, who scored 19 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, the Cavaliers held a 53-44 halftime lead thanks to a 24-4 advantage in points in the paint. "They set the tone, obviously, in the first half in terms of their ability to get points in the paint and offensive rebounds," Frank said. Jeff McInnis had 16 points and eight assists and Drew Gooden added 16 and 10 boards for his fourth straight double-double for Cleveland, which won its eighth consecutive home game and third straight overall. Cleveland (12-6) has the best record in the Eastern Conference this late in the season for the first time since the 1988-89 season. "The rest of the NBA better take us as a legitimate threat," James added. "We're able to beat quality teams, and that is something that we couldn't do last year. We are especially a great team at home."
