Game Story

CLEVELAND (Ticker) -- Danny Ferry scored 18 points and Derek Anderson added 15 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds as the Cleveland Cavaliers stopped a season-high seven-game losing streak with a 91-83 victory over the Toronto Raptors, the last team they beat.

Cleveland had its flickering playoff hopes severely damaged when starting point guard Brevin Knight broke his left hand and leading scorer and rebounder Shawn Kemp went down with a sprained left foot. One night after being officially ousted from the postseason race, it won for the first time since a 91-90 overtime triumph at Toronto on April 16.

"We got a great effort from the guys tonight," said Cleveland coach Mike Fratello. "The fact that they came back here in the fourth game in five nights and were able to put a fourth quarter together to finally enable us to win a game. There's not a guy that really didn't come off to do something to really help us in a positive way."

Andrew DeClercq had 13 points and seven rebounds and Wesley Person added 11 points for the Cavaliers, who are are missing the postseason for just the second time since 1991.

Vince Carter, the leading Rookie of the Year candidate, scored 25 points for the Raptors, who lost their fourth straight game and fell to 4-11 all-time against the Cavaliers. Toronto (22-25) will be eliminated from the playoffs with another loss or a win by the New York Knicks (25-22), who are eighth in the Eastern Conference.

"We go the points we usually score but we just didn't stop anybody," Carter said. "They hit shots and got to some loose balls. They got the job done and my hat's off to them. We are just not getting the job done, plain and simple."

Cleveland never trailed and shot 48 percent (10-for-21) in the first quarter for a 21-18 lead. The Cavaliers used a 9-3 burst on 3-pointers by Mitchell Butler, Ferry and Anderson for a 48-39 cushion with 1:18 to go in the second quarter.

"My shot has felt good most of the year," said Ferry, who made 6-of-10 shots. "Even in the beginning when I wasn't shooting the ball well. My knees have improved and it's been fun for us to get to play. This team hasn't won a game for a while, we've competed and finally had a chance to close it out."

The Cavaliers built the lead to 58-46 when Ferry made a 3-pointer with 7:19 left in the third period. But the Raptors used a 7-0 spurt, cutting it to 60-55 on a driving layup by Carter with 3:30 remaining.

Cleveland scored the first nine points of the fourth period and took its biggest lead of the game, 78-63, on two free throws by Cedric Henderson with 8:42 left.
