Game Story

CLEVELAND (Ticker) -- Eric Snow and Jeff McInnis took some leadership off the hands of LeBron James. Snow and McInnis ran an effective offense by combining for 14 assists without a turnover as the Cleveland Cavaliers built a big early lead and held on for a 94-84 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers. "The question (earlier) was how can you win when your point guards don't score any points," Cleveland interim coach Brendan Malone said. "Well, Jeff McInnis and Eric Snow, I believe had seven assists each and they scored 14 (actually 10) points and they really directed their team well." James scored 22 points and Zydrunas Ilgauskas added 19 and 15 rebounds for Cleveland (37-32), which won for the second time in as many nights and moved within one game of fifth-place Chicago in the Eastern Conference. The Cavaliers visit the Bulls on Thursday. "I thought we had an awful lot of energy and that's what keyed our defense and our run-outs, especially in the first part of the game," said Malone, 3-2 since taking over for the fired Paul Silas. "Every time I go to somebody (off the bench), they are having a positive effect." The 20-year-old James, who played all 53 minutes in Monday's overtime win at New Orleans, was picked up by the veteran point guard tandem of Snow and McInnis, who scored just 10 points between them but each handed out seven assists. McInnis, who started 61 of the team's first 63 games, was benched March 20 at Toronto by Silas and has come off the bench the last five games. "I think it's a lot tougher for Jeff than it is for me," said Snow, the starter at point in the last six games. "He's still playing more than me. We're both trying to be as professional as we can be and help our team win." After a miserable four-game stretch, including 0-of-5 shooting at New Orleans, McInnis started to return to form against the Clippers. "I'm getting back on track," he said. "I'm letting the game come to me and am starting to get back in the flow." Snow got things started with five assists in the first quarter. He added a jumper for good measure, helping Cleveland open a 27-18 lead. In the second period, McInnis sank a jumper before setting up three straight baskets, including a dunk by Ilgauskas. The 8-0 surge gave the Cavaliers a 42-25 lead midway through the quarter. "I thought Jeff McInnis did a very good job of playing under control, pushing the ball when he had to, and then when he didn't have it, running the offense," Malone said. Cleveland led by as many as 19 points in the third quarter before Los Angeles - on the fringes of playoff contention - began a comeback. The Clippers closed to 70-58 entering the final period and were within 80-75 with 4:39 left after a 3-pointer by Rick Brunson, who scored all 11 of his points in the fourth quarter. James answered with a 3-pointer and struck again from the arc less than two minutes later, rebuilding the lead to 88-77 with 2:13 to go. Cleveland led by at least eight points thereafter. "Nobody was over 10 points and we were up by 12," James said. "That was good. It was good to see how everybody was spreading the defense, everyone was working together defensively. We were just playing complete basketball." Drew Gooden scored 16 points and Ira Newble added 11 for the Cavaliers, who committed just 11 turnovers. They won the finale of back-to-back games for just the fourth time in 15 tries. Corey Maggette had 26 points and seven assists and Chris Kaman added 18 and nine rebounds for the Clippers (32-39), who fell to 0-2 on their seven-game road trip. They are seven games and three teams behind Denver for the West's final berth. "Defensively, in the first half, we weren't very good," Clippers coach Mike Dunleavy said. "We made a lot of mistakes, turnovers that cost us. They played with more meaningful energy in that first half." The Clippers were without forward Bobby Simmons, who sat out with a lower left leg injury. They sorely missed his 16.6 points per game. "Bobby is the X factor to our team," Maggette said. "We need him as far as his scoring and the way he plays."
