Game Story

CLEVELAND (Ticker) -- Shawn Kemp led an impressive second-half turnaround by the Cleveland Cavaliers, scoring 22 of his 31 points over the final 24 minutes and grabbing 14 rebounds in a 97-80 victory over the Golden State Warriors.

After shooting just 2-of-9 from the field in the first half, Kemp connected on 6-of-9 thereafter to match his best point total since joining Cleveland prior to last season. He also sank all 10 of his free throws in the second half, finishing 15-of-17 from the line, and posted a season high on the boards.

Kemp scored 10 points in the third quarter, when Cleveland erased a 42-36 halftime deficit and grabbed the lead for good.

After the Cavs were blown out at home by Detroit on Thursday, Kemp had some harsh words for his teammates in a highly-publicized locker room tirade. He had been limited to 15 points and seven boards in that defeat.

"After the Detroit game, it was the worst game I ever played in my 10 years," Kemp said. "When you lose, you get frustrated. Maybe I said things I shouldn't have, but I like to win. I guess some of my teammates took it wrong, what I said, and I'll handle it differently the next time. I don't want my teammates to get down on me."

Facing a 52-49 deficit midway through the period, the Cavaliers used a 9-0 spurt to take command. Johnny Newman, who scored nine of his 16 points in the period, triggered the run with two free throws before Brevin Knight found Vitaly Potapenko for a dunk that made it 53-52. Derek Anderson sank a foul shot, Newman hit a pair and Kemp dunked off a feed from Wesley Person to build a 58-52 lead with 3:46 left.

Cleveland led 64-59 after three quarters and put the game out of reach by scoring the first nine points of the fourth period.

Kemp highlighted that burst with a three-point play and helped the Cavs shoot 64 percent (18-of-28) in the second half after shooting just 34 percent (11-of-32) in the first.

"Kemp was real good, that's what we expect of him," Knight said. "He goes out every night and puts in his time and does a great job. Whenever we play with that effort and intensity, it turns out well for us."

Knight, who missed the last two games with a sprained index finger, keyed the third-quarter comeback with four of his 10 assists and four of his five steals. He also contributed 10 points and a season-high eight rebounds as the Cavaliers won their eighth in a row at home against the Warriors since November 28, 1990.

"I don't think there's any question that we got a tremendous lift tonight from Brevin Knight, coming back and giving us the minutes that he gave us," said Cavs coach Mike Fratello.

John Starks scored 15 points to pace Golden State, which shot just 35 percent (26-of-74) as it completed a 1-4 road trip.

The Warriors went scoreless in the first two-plus minutes of the fourth quarter and the Cavs took advantage. Anderson sank a pair of free throws to open the period before Kemp followed his own miss by getting fouled on a layup. He hit the free throw to make it 69-59.

"We didn't rotate well and Kemp just killed us," said Warriors forward Donyell Marshall. "Kemp is too strong and too good of a player. ... He'll beat anybody in the league down there (under the basket). This year, he's making his foul shots, that just shows the dedication he has."

"I'm learning to hit free throws," Kemp said. "It was hard to get to the line. Now they hit me pretty hard, and I have to relax to get it when I'm at the foul line."

Anderson, who scored 11 points, continued the run with a dunk and Kemp rebounded a miss by Donyell Marshall, leading to Danny Ferry's 15-footer that created a 73-59 cushion with 10:02 to go.

Starks finally got the Warriors on the board in the fourth with a 3-pointer, but that was Golden State's only basket over the first 5 1/2 minutes of the quarter. Following that stretch, the Warriors failed to cut the deficit under double digits.

Potapenko chipped in 13 points for the Cavs, who hit 37-of-46 from the foul line and owned a 12-4 edge in fast-break points.

"Defensively all night, we were a step slow," said Warriors coach P.J. Carlesimo. "They would kick it out and get an open shot, our rotations were very bad. We had a lot of guys who looked like they were tired."

Down 28-27 early in the second quarter, Golden State reeled off 11 straight points to temporarily take control. Starks and Erick Dampier each had baskets and Chris Mills sank two free throws before Tony Delk hit a pair and converted a three-point play for a 38-28 cushion with 5:25 remaining.

Delk scored 13 points but committed five turnovers. Dampier added 12 points and nine boards but fouled out and Mills contributed 11 and eight but shot just 2-of-14.

The only member of the Warriors' starting five not to score in double figures was Marshall. He scored just six points on 3-of-11 shooting in place of Jason Caffey, who missed the game with an inflammation of his right Achilles tendon.
