Game Story

CLEVELAND (Ticker) -- With one eye swollen shut, Shawn Kemp scored 18 of his 29 points in the first half as he and the Cleveland Cavaliers rebounded from a humiliating loss with an easy 127-116 victory over the Atlanta Hawks.

Kemp suffered a cut over his right eye in the first half but that did not stop the explosive power forward from making 13-of-21 shots and grabbing 11 rebounds in 39 minutes.

The Cavaliers were coming off a 136-88 thrashing at the hands of the Indiana Pacers on Friday but improved to 6-1 in the second half of back-to-back games.

"What a difference in two nights," Cavaliers coach Randy Wittman said. "I was really pleased. We had a good talk about what went on last night and what had to be changed. Not in any kind of strategy, but in what we do in terms of effort and purpose on the floor."

Kemp, who was held to 10 points on 4-of-14 shooting against the Pacers, buried 8-of-11 shots over the first 24 minutes en route to matching his season-high point total established November 20 against Indiana.

"I challenged Shawn a little bit as everybody else," Wittman said. "I thought, defensively, his play had slipped a little bit and he took some things for granted. I thought he was as aggressive as he's been all year when he got the ball down low."

"It took concentration and effort," Kemp added. "Sometimes when it rains, it pours. Last night wasn't a very good night for any of us out there on the court. We had to sleep all night with that bad feeling. We just wanted to come back out and give it an honest effort."

Bob Sura made 7-of-10 first-half shots for 18 of his 24 points to lead the Cavaliers to a 76-57 bulge at intermission.

Isaiah Rider scored 27 points and Alan Henderson added 21 for Atlanta, which looked slugglish after a brutal home loss to the lowly Golden State Warriors on Friday.

The most inspiring portion of the evening for the Hawks came with 9:43 to play when former Cavaliers coach Lenny Wilkens was ejected for arguing and received a standing ovation from the Gund Arena crowd.

"You get behind, then it's an uphill battle," Wilkens said. "You use a lot of energy trying to get back in the game. We got down and we did not play well. We got behind and we started to turn the ball over."

Jim Jackson scored 20 points and Lorenzen Wright added 14 off the bench for Atlanta, which shot 42 percent (33-of-79) and yielded 29 points off 22 turnovers.

"It's tough to play when you're behind and on the road," said Jackson. "It's tough to make mistakes and they shot the ball well."

Lamond Murray had 21 points and seven rebounds and Brevin Knight added 14 points and 15 assists for the Cavs, who made half their 92 shots, including 6-of-11 from 3-point range.

"Anytime you get defensive stops, you push and get easy shots and you start feeling really good," Knight said. "You feel like anything is going to go down. You can make things happen."

Danny Ferry scored 11 first-half points for Cleveland before leaving the contest after aggravating a right calf muscle injury. He is listed as day-to-day.

The Cavs led 39-29 after one quarter and opened their lead further in the second period with their biggest first half since January 28, 1993.

Dikembe Mutombo led Atlanta to a 42-41 rebounding edge with 13 boards but managed just five points on 0-of-2 shooting in 30 minutes.

Trailing 5-4 less than two minutes into play, the Cavs forged ahead for good with a 15-0 spurt capped by Andrew DeClercq's slam that made it 19-4 with 7:33 remaining in the first quarter.
