Game Story

CLEVELAND (Ticker) -- The Washington Wizards made the Cleveland Cavaliers' return home a startling one. Gilbert Arenas scored 19 of his 30 points in the second half as Washington matched its win total from a season ago by rallying to defeat Cleveland, 106-97. The Wizards erased a 12-point third-quarter deficit and shook off a horrendous first half in which they shot just 26 percent (9-of-35). The win was Washington's third straight and ninth in 11 outings. The Wizards (25-15) are off to their best start since 1978-79, when the team was known as the Bullets. They had 10 road wins after notching just eight all of last season and their 25 wins match the total the team recorded in coach Eddie Jordan's initial campaign with the club. "I think that we're never out of it because of the way we can get to the basket, get to the free-throw line, we can make threes and we can score the basketball," Jordan said. "We're long and we're tall enough and we're athletic enough to get some things off the glass, whether it's offense or defense." Arenas was just 7-of-18 from the field but 13-of-16 from the line. "Gilbert, he's always Gilbert," Jordan said. "We always have a chance and he always has a killer instinct, especially when he knows that we're not playing as well as we should or it's a game he knows that we can take." The triumph also helped Washington avenge a 31-point loss to Cleveland on November 13. The defeat also was just the fourth in 18 home games for the Cavaliers, who were returning from a five-game West Coast swing. LeBron James did continue his torrid play for Cleveland (24-16), recording 31 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists. "You would think (the long road trip) would affect us, but it didn't," Cleveland guard Ira Newble said. "No, we lost this game for other reasons: poor execution, foul trouble, missed free throws." James also cited the free-throw discrepancy as Cleveland went 15-of-23 from the line and Washington 39-of-49. "We gave up a lot of free throws," James said. "We were fouling jump shooters, and they kept getting to the line. It was not because of our play on defense. That's the key, they went to the line a lot. They were there 25 (actually 26) more times than us. Of course they're going to outscore us when they get to the line that much." "I don't know (if we didn't have our legs), I thought we hung in there," Cavaliers coach Paul Silas said. "But I look at the stat sheet and we have 52 points in the paint and they go to the line 49 times. Something is wrong. I'm not saying that was the total problem. But we're going to have to look at this tape very carefully and see what that big discrepancy is." The Cavaliers showed no lingering effects from the trip, using to a 14-2 burst midway through the opening quarter to take a 22-8 lead. Zydrunas Ilgauskas had eight of his 11 points in the opening quarter as Cleveland led 26-13 after 12 minutes. A jumper by Eric Snow with 7 1/2 minutes left in the opening half gave Cleveland its biggest lead, 34-17. The Wizards closed the half with a 13-6 burst to get within 10 at the break. Washington had more turnovers (10) than field goals (nine) over the opening 24 minutes. The Wizards chipped away in the third quarter, getting within one on a number of occasions, but did not take the lead until a 3-pointer by Anthony Peeler put them on top, 78-76, with 8:29 to go. The 3-pointer ignited a 12-4 burst that put Washington in control.
