Game Story

CLEVELAND (Ticker) -- Drew Gooden and Zydrunas Ilgauskas enabled the shorthanded Cleveland Cavaliers to survive another night without LeBron James. Playing without a host of regulars, including their star second-year forward, the Cavaliers got a career-high 33 points from Gooden and 28 from Ilgauskas in a 104-87 win over the Milwaukee Bucks. In the last week, the Cavaliers have lost James, Ira Newble and Anderson Varejao to injury and saw Lucious Harris and Sasha Pavlovic leave this one with a bruised sternum and a groin pull, respectively. James, Cleveland's leader in scoring and assists, is expected back from a sprained left ankle Tuesday at Orlando. "I'm just glad we had five guys out there to play," said Gooden, one of a six-man rotation Cavaliers coach Paul Silas employed in the second half. Despite the injuries, the Cavaliers were the ones with the energy down the stretch. They held the Bucks to a season-low 10 points in the fourth quarter and managed to hang onto first place in the Central Division with a 26-17 mark. Much of the credit can be placed on Silas' decision to alter his defense late, converting to a triangle-and-two system that stymied Milwaukee. Eric Snow guarded Bucks' leading scorer Michael Redd, Gooden took care of Desmond Mason and the other three defenders played a zone. "Brendan Malone, my assistant coach, has been trying to get me to go with this triangle-and-two," Silas said. "That's what we went to and that was it. I put (Gooden) at small forward and we came up with this defense and it worked." "To be honest with you, we've never practiced (the triangle-and-two)," Gooden said. "We just went with it and it worked." Snow allowed Redd to take just four shots in the fourth. "Eric Snow did a great job on Redd," said Cleveland guard Jeff McInnis, who scored 16 points and matched a career high with 15 assists. "Zydrunas and Drew carried us offensively down the stretch. While the Bucks were reeling on the offensive end, the Cavaliers' healthy frontcourt tandem dominated. Ilgauskas, who matched a season high with 18 rebounds, put Cleveland ahead to stay, 78-77, with a follow shot with 9:14 remaining. Less than three minutes later, Ilgauskas began a string of seven straight points to make it 91-81. Gooden scored just four points in the first half before breaking out after intermission and finishing in dominant fashion. He scored the Cavaliers' last 12 points to put away the game, eclipsing his old personal best by one point. Cleveland's 32-10 advantage in the fourth helped it improve its home record to 16-4, best in the Eastern Conference. "We just stayed aggressive," said Robert Traylor, who had eight rebounds and tied a career high with four steals in 18 minutes. "It was different but it worked. We just found a way to win." Redd scored 23 points for the Bucks, who shot 4-of-15 in the final 12 minutes and were outrebounded overall, 48-31. He and Mason were the only two Milwaukee players to score in the fourth. "It was just frustrating, especially with the opportunity to play and win without LeBron in the lineup," Redd said. "You've got to take advantage of that." The Bucks dropped their third straight and failed to reach 100 points for the first time in four games. "They went with a bigger lineup and they went to a zone," Bucks coach Terry Porter said. "We couldn't get quality shots against the zone."
