GAME RECAP

Zydrunas Ilgauskas' follow shot with 62 seconds left put Cleveland ahead for good as the Cavaliers dealt the Sacramento Kings their sixth straight loss, 90-85.

The Cavaliers trailed 84-83 with 82 seconds left after Sacramento's Corliss Williamson sank a free throw. Bob Sura then went to the free throw line and missed pair of shots, but Ilgauskas tipped in the miss on the second attempt to put the Cavs ahead to stay.

Sacramento had a chance to tie the game on the ensuing possession but Mitch Richmond missed a long jumper. Derek Anderson than canned a pair of foul shots for an 87-84 advantage with 43 seconds left. The Kings threw the ball away on their next possession and Anderson hit another free throw with 14 seconds to play for a four-point cushion.

Shawn Kemp scored 10 of his 19 points in the fourth quarter to lead the Cavaliers, who have won the first two games of their three-game road trip. Kemp added 14 rebounds and Anderson contributed 18 points for Cleveland, which moved into a tie with the New York Knicks for the sixth position in the Eastern Conference playoff race.

"I couldn't bye a shot in the first half," Kemp said. "I tried to be patient and not force any shots in the fourth quarter, but I just put it out there in fourth and played as hard as I could. I kept putting the ball up to give myself second chances and they finally went in."

Williamson scored 21 points and Otis Thorpe netted 20 and seven rebounds for the Kings, who fell eight games behind the Minnesota Timberwolves for the final playoff berth in the Western Conference.

"We fought hard and didn't convert on the offensive end and there were several things we should've done," Williamson said. "I'm taking these losses real hard. We can go 81-1 and that one loss would still bother me."

The Kings got out of the gate quickly, scoring the first 10 points of the game, capped by Williamson's dunk at the 8:47 mark. But the Cavs answered with a 10-2 run to pull within 12-10 with 5:02 left. Sacramento held a 22-16 lead after one quarter.

Cleveland began the second period like the Kings in the first, scoring 17 of the first 19 points for a 33-24 advantage with 4:27 left before intermission. The Kings used a 10-2 spurt to close the half to draw within 35-34.

The Kings received a scare at the 6:42 mark of the second quarter when Richmond, who is fourth in the league in scoring, went to the locker room with a sore right knee. He returned to start the second half but finished just 4-of-18 from the field and scored only 12 points.

"Mitch was off tonight. He was playing hurt and I chose to limit the number of substitutions in the second half because I felt the pace of the game allowed us to keep our starters fresh," Sacramento coach Eddie Jordan said. "Their (the Cavaliers) keys tonight were their size, quickness and ability to make the big shot. Down the stretch we just didn't make the shots that were crucial to the win."

The third quarter saw 11 lead changes and the Cavaliers holding a 62-61 advantage entering the final period.

Ilgauskas also grabbed 12 rebounds for the Cavaliers, who dominated the boards over the smaller Kings, 49-29. Cleveland also shot the ball better than the Kings, hitting 47 percent (33-of-71) from the field, compared to only 41 percent (30-of-74) from Sacramento.

"It was a hard fought win," Cleveland coach Mike Fratello said. "The Kings did an excellent job. They were very prepared, but we got a great lift from our guard group which came off the bench."
