Game Story

CHICAGO (Ticker) -- Rookie Andre Miller scored 23 of his 24 points after halftime, including five in overtime, as the Cleveland Cavaliers snapped an 11-game road losing streak with a 114-110 overtime win over the Chicago Bulls.

Tied at 103 after regulation, rookie Elton Brand's basket with 4:47 remaining gave Chicago a two-point lead, but Miller's short jumper with 3:31 left started a 6-0 run. He found Bob Sura for a driving layup that capped the surge at 109-105 with 1:02 to play.

The Bulls halved the deficit as Chris Carr sank two free throws with 56 seconds to play. But Miller answered with a crucial 3-pointer from the right corner with 41 seconds remaining to give the Cavaliers a 112-107 advantage.

A 3-pointer by Hersey Hawkins with 35 seconds left cut the deficit to 112-110. After Miller missed a long jumper, Lamond Murray made a follow shot with 14 seconds remaining to seal the win.

"This was an important win for us, both because we haven't won too much on the road and it's the first one on this long road trip," Miller said. "We just came out a little slow tonight, but really turned it up at the end."

Shawn Kemp scored 25 points and Wesley Person added 23 for the Cavs, who posted their first road win since an 82-80 victory at Vancouver on January 14.

Brand scored 30 points and fellow rookie Ron Artest added 15 for Chicago, which suffered its sixth straight loss despite scoring over 100 points for only the third time all season.

"We were better offensively tonight than we had been in a month," Chicago coach Tim Floyd said. "We had good shot selection and executed the offense well. Our inability to take it down and make them pay for extended pressure hurt us."

The Bulls grabbed a 100-95 lead on a layup by Brand with 2:54 left in the fourth quarter, but turnovers down the stretch allowed Cleveland back into the game.

Kemp scored the first four points in a 7-0 run to cut Chicago's lead to one. After Chicago's Dickey Simpkins lost the ball out of bounds, Mark Bryant was fouled and sank 1-of-2 free throws to tie the game at 100 with 1:32 to play.

Artest traveled on Chicago's next possession but Kemp missed a 20-footer with 38 seconds remaining and Chicago's Randy Brown grabbed the rebound.

After a timeout, Miller stole the inbounds pass and went the length of the court for a layup to give the Cavaliers a 102-100 advantage with 19 seconds to go.

"The difference in the game was our defense down the stretch," Cleveland coach Randy Wittman said. "Our pressure was great. We caused two turnovers when guys picked up their dribble and we forced them to call timeouts."

Carr sank 1-of-2 free throws with 13 seconds remaining to cut Cleveland's lead to one. Miller was fouled and made 1-of-2 free throws with 12 seconds to play as Cleveland went ahead, 103-101. But Brown hit a spinning jumper with 3.2 seconds left to tie it.

Murray scored 14 points and Sura added 12 off the bench for Cleveland, which shot 46 percent (42-of-91), including 6-of-14 from 3-point range.

Kemp scored 14 points and Person added 11 in the first quarter as the Cavaliers moved out to a 35-29 lead. The second quarter featured three ties and seven lead changes, but Artest's layup with 2.9 seconds remaining allowed the Bulls to take a 56-55 lead at the half.

After scoring one point in the first half, Miller came alive in the third quarter as he made 6-of-9 shots and scored 16 points. His driving layup with 11 seconds to play gave the Cavaliers an 88-84 advantage. Matt Maloney's three-point play with 3.1 seconds to play allowed the Bulls to enter the fourth quarter trailing by one.

"I tried to be more aggressive in the second half," Miller said. "I picked up the tempo defensively. My job is to then get the offense to work."

Brown scored 12 points and Carr contributed 11 off the bench for the Bulls, who shot over 48 percent (39-of-80), but were only 2-of-13 from behind the arc and committed 24 turnovers.
