NBA : GAME OF THE DAY

Cavaliers hold off seven Warriors

Cleveland 114, Golden State 108

November 18, 2009|Associated Press

CLEVELAND — LeBron James had 31 points and 12 assists, J.J. Hickson scored a career-high 21 points and the Cleveland Cavaliers held off a gutsy effort by the short-handed Golden State Warriors, 114-108, on Tuesday night.

Injuries and illness left Golden State with seven healthy bodies, although the Cavaliers had their own injury concerns.

Jamario Moon left in the third quarter with a sprained left ankle, and Shaquille O'Neal and Anderson Varejao were inactive for Cleveland. Varejao was scratched with a hip contusion and O'Neal missed his second straight game because of a strained shoulder.

Golden State dressed the league minimum eight players, including newly acquired Raja Bell, who didn't play because of a wrist injury that will require surgery next week.
