Game Story

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (Ticker) -- Even when he's more focused on sharing, LeBron James continues to help the Cleveland Cavaliers win big. James scored a season-low 19 points but dished out a season-high nine assists to lift the Cavaliers to their fifth consecutive win, a 106-89 triumph over the reeling Charlotte Bobcats, who have lost five straight. In the first quarter, James scored 10 points and Zydrunas Ilgauskas added 11 to help Cleveland open a 32-25 lead. "We jumped right on them," James said. "We knew they were going to make a run. They are at home and they are an NBA team. We tried to come out and jump on them, which we did." Charlotte battled back in the second quarter. Former Cavalier Jason Kapono scored 12 of his 16 points in the period to help the Bobcats tie the score three times. Cleveland guard Jeff McInnis' 3-pointer with 2:56 left in the second quarter snapped a 47-47 tie and sparked a 10-2 run to close the first half. James added another 3-pointer and finished a fast break with a highlight-reel one-handed dunk before a basket by Ira Newble gave Cleveland a 57-49 lead at the half. "I just threw it down like I know how to do," James said. "I didn't think I was going to make it, but my long arms got me there. I told you I could fly." "He was up so high," Cleveland coach Paul Silas said. " I didn't know how he was going to reach over and do it. Man, he just amazes me. He comes with something new every game. But that's just like, 'How can a human being do that kind of thing?'" The Cavaliers, who have won by an average of 15.6 points per game during their streak, started the second half with a 15-5 run to blow open the contest. McInnis, a Charlotte native, tallied 18 points, including three in the run, and added four assists. "We weren't together as a team in the first three games," McInnis said. "Coach kind of chewed us out. We had two or three hard practices. We had a change in the lineup. We've been rolling ever since. I'm just happy to be a part of it." Drew Gooden scored the first basket in the half and posted all eight of his points during the run. He capped the burst and gave Cleveland a commanding 72-54 lead with a pair of free throws with 5:41 left in the period. With the large lead, Silas played James just eight minutes in the second half and a season-low 30 overall. "His play was very impressive tonight and amazing," Silas said of James. "He's truly amazing. It was good to get him some rest tonight. He's playing almost 44 minutes per game, which is too many, but you need to play him a lot of minutes because you want to win." "I want to be in the game," James said. "I'm not used to sitting on no bench, it's now what I do, but anytime our team is winning like that, I'm having fun on the bench cheering on my teammates." Bobcats forward Gerald Wallace was ejected after picking up a pair of third-quarter flagrant fouls, one on James and one while trying to block Gooden, and Charlotte coach Bernie Bickerstaff also was tossed for arguing Wallace's second flagrant foul. "That's what the guy does," Bickerstaff said. "He contests shots and went clean for it. I think once they review the file he shouldn't be ejected. We've looked at the film, I've had plenty of time." "Some unfortunate stuff happened," Charlotte forward Melvin Ely said. "The person that brings the energy to the team was out and it really hurts when you have a man like that out." Keith Bogans scored 14 points and Ely added 10 for the Bobcats, who did not have a starter score in double figures. "We cut the lead down from 20 to 11," Bogans said. "But when we got those four technical fouls it took the air out of us a little bit."
