Game Story

CLEVELAND (Ticker) -- Lamond Murray kept the Cleveland Cavaliers rolling and Larry Hughes kept the Golden State Warriors reeling.

Murray scored 14 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter -- when Hughes was shut out -- as the Cavaliers pulled away for a 96-86 victory over the Warriors, who have lost six straight games.

Murray, averaging 10.2 points per game, scored 11 points in an 18-3 burst that began the final period and gave the Cavaliers an 81-68 lead. In the quarter, he made 3-of-5 shots and 8-of-9 free throws.

"I think it was the fact that I was hot because most of those shots were long shots," Murray said. "We were struggling and I kind of felt like, `Give me the ball.' It didn't matter who was guarding me, I was just knocking the shots down. I just wanted to play basketball."

"I thought Lamond came up big for us," Wittman said. "We tried to milk him through the third quarter to the fourth. He came in and gave us his all."

Hughes, averaging 14.3 points, scored 17 points through three quarters but missed all five of his shots in the final period. Golden State shot just 23 percent (5-of-22) in the fourth quarter.

The Warriors (1-6) began a four-game road trip by dropping to 0-3 away from home. They have lost 10 straight visits to Cleveland since November 28, 1990.

Andre Miller had 19 points, nine assists, nine rebounds and a pair of crucial baskets down the stretch for Cleveland (6-1), which remains the biggest surprise of the young NBA season.

"I'm not surprised that our record is 6-1," Wittman said. "I demanded a lot from the guys and they responded."

Murray, an Oakland native, made two jumpers to open the final period before hitting five free throws to give the Cavs the lead for good at 72-68 with 9:56 remaining.

"When I was in high school, Chris Mullin was one of my favorites," Murray said. "I've been in this league for a while and Mullin is still playing."

Robert Traylor and Miller made baskets around a 3-pointer by Trajan Langdon before Miller capped the burst at 81-68 with a 17-footer with 7:54 remaining.

"Everybody knows Murray is a great scorer," Warriors forward Antawn Jamison said. "That's one thing about him, you don't want to get him going. When he gets going, it doesn't matter where you're shooting the ball from or what kind of shot he's taking. The Cavs recognized that and started running plays for him."

The Warriors closed to 85-81 on a free throw by rookie Chris Porter with 3:23 left. But Zydrunas Ilgauskas had a foul shot and dunk and Miller made a pair of jumpers to seal it at 92-81 with 1:12 to go.

Ilgauskas scored 12 points and Murray and Clarence Weatherspoon grabbed nine rebounds each for Cleveland, which shot 49 percent (38-of-78) despite missing guard Wesley Person and forward Chris Gatling, two of its better offensive players.

Person went on the injured list with a bruised left elbow and Gatling was sidelined with a bruised left knee.

Jamison had 25 points and 11 rebounds for the Warriors, who played without forward Danny Fortson and clearly missed him. Missing the NBA leader in rebounding due to a sore right foot, Golden State was beaten on the boards, 55-41.

"We were down 13 and still came back and had a chance," Cowens said. "This is gonna be a good basketball team once we get healthy. I like the mental fortitude of our guys, they're staying with it and that's good because that's going to reap dividends in the long haul."

Erick Dampier had 11 points, 11 rebounds and four blocks for the Warriors, who shot just 33 percent (27-of-81).

"I thought our defense was a big factor in the game," Wittman said. "We held them to 33 percent shooting. The first half, we allowed them to stay alive with some bad fouls and bonus situations. Offensively, we had our ups and downs but we had six blocks and dominated the boards."

Murray scored 10 points in the first half, which ended with the Cavs holding a 43-38 lead. But he was shut out in the third quarter as the Warriors claimed a 65-63 edge entering the final 12 minutes.
