Game Story

CLEVELAND (Ticker) -- The Cleveland Cavaliers took full advantage of their home-court advantage.

Lamond Murray drilled a 3-pointer as time expired as the Cavaliers rallied for a 100-97 victory over the New Jersey Nets, who continued to struggle away from home.

After squandering a seven-point lead in the fourth quarter, the Nets looked like they would reach overtime after Keith Van Horn sank a 3-pointer to tie the contest at 97-97 with five-tenths of a second left.

But after a timeout, Cleveland was able win in dramatic fashion with some help from the clock operator. Murray shook free from Kenyon Martin, received the inbounds pass from Andre Miller in the left corner and sank the winning shot while unguarded. Television replays showed the clock was delayed in starting and the Nets argued to no avail.

Jason Kidd recorded his seventh triple-double of the season and 45th career with 30 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists for the Nets, who lost for the eighth time in their last nine road contests. New Jersey had its lead in the Atlantic Division reduced to four games over Boston.

Zydrunas Ilgauskas had has best game in over a year for the Cavs as he finished with a season-high 26 points and 14 rebounds.
