Game Story

CHICAGO (Ticker) -- With Ricky Davis out of the picture and rookie LeBron James enjoying the best week of his brief career, Cleveland Cavaliers coach Paul Silas has a lot to smile about. James continued his recent tear with 32 points as the Cavaliers pulled out a 95-87 victory over the Chicago Bulls. Davis clashed at times with Silas and was shipped to Boston on Monday in a six-player deal. After losing at Indiana with only nine players and falling to Houston with the newcomers in uniform for the first time, the Cavaliers have won consecutive road games for the first time since a three-game run in February 2002. "The team is great on the court, offensive- and defensive-wise," James said. "Off the court is great and it's contagious what they brought from Boston." "We've been struggling, especially on the road, so the wins back-to-back on the road is big for us," Silas said. "As for LeBron, what can you say? He's big-time now. He hit some big shots, got big rebounds and played defense. We need it and he provides it for us. I think it's all really starting to come for him. He handles the hype and pressure extremely well. Let's just say he's got it." One night after scoring 36 points at Philadelphia, James played a key role in the fourth quarter. Just 10 days shy of his 19th birthday and with fellow Nike pitchman Michael Jordan watching from a luxury box, James scored Cleveland's final 14 points. Cleveland faced a 73-70 deficit through three quarters but opened the fourth on an 8-0 spurt, holding Chicago scoreless for the first 5 1/2 minutes. When the Bulls got close down the stretch, James stepped up, hitting big baskets on successive possessions that made it 89-82 with 70 seconds to play, then sealing the victory with six free throws. James is averaging 28.6 points in his last six games while shooting 49 percent (60-of-122) from the field. In his first game against the Bulls, James made 11-of-22 shots, 10-of-12 free throws and dished out a season-high 10 assists. Cleveland has split its last eight games following a season-high eight-game losing streak. In winning consecutive games for the third time this season, the Cavaliers received contributions from several players, including Zydrunas Ilgauskas and newcomer Tony Battie. "The guys we have now are vets and know how to win on the road," Silas said. "The guys are playing tough, but someone each night is stepping up." But it wasn't just offensively that James came up big. He also excelled defensively against rookie Kirk Hinrich and Jamal Crawford, who combined for 26 points on a woeful 11-of-39 from the floor. "I said before the game I think he is one of the top 20 players right now," Chicago coach Scott Skiles said. "When you look all around and don't just look at hype, but look at substance and what he does, he can dribble, pass and shoot. Those are the three things that make a great player at any level."
