GAME RECAP

Wesley Person scored 14 of his 24 points in the second half to lead the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 95-67 romp over the Golden State Warriors, who terminated the contract of embattled guard Latrell Sprewell earlier in the evening.

The Cavaliers extended their winning streak to six games, the longest since capturing eight consecutive victories from January 31st-February 19th, 1996.

"We wanted to keep our streak going," said rookie guard and Stanford alumnus Brevin Knight, who had 10 points and eight assists in his homecoming. "It feels good to be able to play in front of people that have watched me play for so long."

The Warriors, who lost their fifth straight game, are a team in turmoil. Sprewell, who averaged 21.4 points per game this season, has been thrown off the team after assaulting coach P.J. Carlesimo in two separate incidents at practice on Monday.

"I was notified (about Sprewell) beforehand," admitted Carlesimo, "and told the players after the game."

Warriors' guard Bimbo Coles, who was held to two points and three assists in 24 minutes, was not expecting the decision, which was announced by general manager Garry St. Jean in a press conference following the game.

"I'm definitely surprised, I don't know what to say," said Coles. "I just think it's an awfully big penalty. Spree was our teammate, and I just wish him the best."

Without their best player, the punchless Warriors managed just 44 points over the final three quarters in posting their lowest point total in over 21 months. Donyell Marshall had 23 and Erick Dampier added 10 for Golden State, which scored just 10 points in the fourth quarter.

"We played a team that has been playing well," Carlesimo said. "They played better, perhaps we got fatigued and had a few of our guys playing in positions they were not quite used to down the stretch."

Vitaly Potapenko scored eight of his 13 points in the final quarter and rookie Derek Anderson chipped in with seven of his 13 in the fourth for the Cavaliers, who trailed 40-36 at halftime.

"Our defensive effort was much better in the second half," said Cleveland coach Mike Fratello. "We were in trouble in the first half, and that is a credit to their defense. The second half we kind of turned things around."

The Warriors fell apart after three quarters. Trailing 62-57 to start the fourth, Golden State hit just 3-of-19 (16 percent) shots from the field and committed seven of its season-high 27 turnovers.

They were just as bad defensively, allowing the Cavs to hit 60 percent (12-of-20) of their shots en route to their biggest road victory since blowing out the 76ers in Philadelphia, 114-82, on November 17th, 1995.

Danny Ferry scored 10 of his season-high 12 points in the final quarter for Cleveland, which shot 39 percent (36-of-92) and held the Warriors to their lowest point total since a 90-64 loss on March 30th, 1996, also to the Cavaliers.

Golden State's Joe Smith, who was limited to just six points, gave his team a 42-36 lead early in the third quarter with a 16-footer. But Person drained consecutive three-pointers and Cedric Henderson hit a jumper, putting the Cavs ahead for good. Person scored 12 points in the quarter.

In the fourth, Felton Spencer, Smith and Marshall hit the only three shots from the field for the Warriors.
