GAME RECAP

Zydrunas Ilgauskas scored 18 points and Wesley Person added 17 as the Cleveland Cavaliers led from start to finish while handing the injury-depleted Milwaukee Bucks their third straight loss, 95-83.

The Cavaliers put the game away early, outscoring Milwaukee 16-8 to start the second quarter and open a double-digit lead. Derek Anderson fueled the surge with six points and Brevin Knight, whose jumper with 5:37 left capped the burst at 38-28, added four. Milwaukee never threatened the rest of the way.

Vitaly Potapenko added 12 points and 11 rebounds for Cleveland, which avoided a three-game losing streak and posted its fourth consecutive home win.

"It was a great opportunity for us to get a win tonight with Robinson and Brandon out," said Person. "We were on our homecourt, and it was key for us to get the win."

Cedric Henderson, who totaled six points in three prior games this season, added 11 points and five rebounds and Bob Sura had 10 points for Cleveland, which hit 51 percent (36-of-70) of its shots.

Michael Curry paced the Bucks with 16 points and former Cavalier Tyrone Hill added 15 and 13 rebounds. Milwaukee has lost six of its last seven games to fall further out of the Eastern Conference playoff picture.

"We didn't shoot the ball well, and you've got to credit the Cavs defense for a lot of that," said Milwaukee coach Chris Ford. "We can't afford to have 18 turnovers, where you have to play almost perfect basketball."

The Bucks, who have been without former Cavs point guard Terrell Brandon for more than a month due to ankle problems, lost leading scorer Glenn Robinson to a knee injury two games ago.

"We needed to get the win," Henderson said. "Without Robinson, it would have definitely looked bad if we didn't take advantage. And I think we did a good job of doing so."

A beleaguered Ray Allen, the Bucks' main weapon in the absence of Robinson, was held to 14 points on 4-of-15 shooting. He also committed seven of his team's 19 turnovers. Elliot Perry had 14 points, seven assists and four steals and Armon Gilliam contributed 14 points off the bench as Milwaukee shot 39 percent (28-of-72) from the field.

"They put more pressure on myself, and even upon driving to the hole, you got more people on you," said Allen. "It forces you to make turnovers and take bad shots. It's an adjustment that I have to make for the team."

Knight, who finished with eight points and nine rebounds, gave Cleveland the lead for good with a jumper 15 seconds into the game.

Leading 22-18, the Cavs began the second quarter on a 15-footer by Knight followed by Anderson's three-pointer. They went on to shoot 60 percent (12-for-20) in that period while holding the Bucks -- who missed their first six shots of the quarter -- to 37 percent (7-19) en route to 51-36 advantage at the break.

Cleveland built its lead to 19 points in the third quarter before taking an 86-66 bulge in the final period on a tip-in by Ilgauskas.
