Game Story

CLEVELAND (Ticker) -- Recording a road win has been nearly impossible for the Atlanta Hawks this season. Recording a basket in the fourth quarter against the Cleveland Cavaliers was almost as difficult. The Hawks went without a basket for the first 8:16 of the final period of a 101-85 loss to the Cavaliers, who got 28 points from Zydrunas Ilgauskas. Without a road win since December 10 and 2-11 away from home this season, the Hawks hung close in the first half and took a 77-76 lead on rookie Josh Childress' reverse layup with 15 seconds remaining in the third quarter. But that was all the offense Atlanta mustered until Tyronn Lue's jumper with 3:44 to go. During the drought, the Cavaliers scored 14 consecutive points, including six by Ilgauskas, to take a 90-79 advantage. "We tried to put them in the pick-and-roll and put them in different situations, and shots just didn't fall," said Atlanta forward Antoine Walker, who scored 10 points in the first quarter and 11 in the third. "I just had a feeling that eventually, if I got the right combination out there to defend, that we would be able to get a comfortable lead," Cleveland coach Paul Silas said. "And those guys really defended. When my second unit is coming in now, we're defending a lot better." Silas was unhappy with the Cavaliers' performance in the first half and let his players know about it at the break. "Coach Silas blasted us at halftime," Cleveland guard Jeff McInnis said. "(Atlanta) had 48 points." Cleveland never was in danger afterward, building the lead to as many as 18 points and outscoring Atlanta in the quarter, 23-8. Ilgauskas had just eight points at halftime but scored 14 in the third quarter as the Cavaliers ended the period with a 78-77 edge. "In the second half, the guys did a good job of getting me the ball in spots that I could score," Ilgauskas said. "His arms are so much longer that he can shoot over you," Hawks center Jason Collier said. "He's not getting that high off the floor, it's just that his arms are so long. You need to have at least two good (post) moves, and he's got three or four." LeBron James and McInnis took charge in the fourth, scoring eight and seven points, respectively. "We wanted to lock down on defense," James said. "They were scoring on easy buckets. They really just played us hard the first three quarters." James had 20 points and nine assists while rookie reserve Anderson Varejao gathered 11 rebounds for the Cavaliers, who have won six straight meetings with the Hawks. Walker scored 26 points and collected 10 boards for Atlanta, which has dropped five straight overall. The Hawks held a 29-22 lead with 2:20 remaining in the first quarter, but the Cavaliers scored the final seven points of the period and James capped the 9-0 run with a dunk early in the second to give Cleveland a 31-29 edge. The Cavaliers built a 44-37 lead with 5:18 to go in the quarter before Josh Smith scored the final six points during a 9-2 spurt to draw the Hawks even, 46-46.
