Game Story

CLEVELAND (Ticker) -- The Chicago Bulls' frontcourt was no match for Zydrunas Ilgauskas, Carlos Boozer and the streaking Cleveland Cavaliers. Ilgauskas collected 24 points, a season high-tying 17 rebounds and five blocks and Boozer added 22, 13 and a career-high five steals as the Cavaliers overpowered the Bulls, 111-87, for their seventh straight victory. Rookie phenom LeBron James contributed 17 points and eight assists and Jeff McInnis had 15 and seven for the Cavaliers, who had not won seven in a row since a 10-game tear from November 21-December 11, 1997 - the last season they made the playoffs. "We're on a high right now, cloud nine," said James, who also matched a season high with five blocks. "We've got to keep bringing it." The Cavaliers have not lost since a 92-81 setback at Chicago on March 1, while the Bulls have dropped a season-high tying seven straight games since. "I was concerned because the Bulls have given us problems, but it was a good game for us to win," said Cavaliers coach Paul Silas, whose team earned a split of the season series. "How we won it was most important. To win going away as we did keeps this thing rolling." Cleveland held just a 51-49 edge before going on an 11-0 run bridging the second and third quarters. McInnis, who had five points during the burst, capped it with a jumper to open a 62-49 advantage with 9:48 left in the third period. The Cavaliers extended the bulge to 85-65 entering the final 12 minutes. After James banked in a 3-pointer to make it 94-67 with 8:54 left, he slapped hands with fans sitting courtside, then sat out the rest of the contest. "Early on, our defense wasn't playing as good as it should have been, but in the second half we really picked it up, LeBron in particular," Silas said. "He came with energy and it just picked the whole team up." Jamal Crawford scored 17 points and rookie Kirk Hinrich added 14 and nine assists for the Bulls, who have lost 24 of their last 30 games. Chicago's starting frontcourt of Eddy Curry, Antonio Davis and Linton Johnson was outscored by Cleveland counterparts Ilgauskas, Boozer and Eric Williams, 51-20. "I thought pretty much from the beginning that we got manhandled in the paint," Bulls coach Scott Skiles said. "It was pretty evident, I guess, but the numbers, too. Z and Boozer had 46 (points) and 30 (rebounds) between the two of them." The Cavaliers converted 20 Chicago turnovers into 30 points, while the Bulls could only muster 14 points off 21 Cleveland giveaways. Chicago was outrebounded, 57-43, and gave up 23 offensive rebounds, including a career high-tying 10 to Ilgauskas. "We were a little bit taller than them and I was able to tip a lot of balls to myself, especially on the offensive end," said the 7-3 Ilgauskas. "Everything seemed to go my way. I just got into good position and got some tip-ins." "He played great and I didn't play so great," said Bulls center Curry, who had six points and five rebounds. "He's always been a defensive presence because of his size. The Cavaliers have a lot of guys stepping up and it's easy for him to be a little more comfortable out there."
