Game 7: Cavs at Nets
at Prudential Center
RADIO/TV: WTAM/Fox Sports Ohio
WHAT HAPPENED: Coach Byron Scott played the hot hand and went with backup guard Ramon Sessions in the fourth quarter. Sessions responded with eight of his 15 points and four of his five assists in the final quarter.
Starter Mo Williams, who came into the game a 20-point scorer, suffered through a 1-for-12 shooting night and was benched for the fourth quarter.
It proved to be the smart move, as the Cavs held off the Nets, who lost their fifth consecutive game.
The Cavs, meanwhile, have won three in a row on the road. They've now won nine in a row over the Nets.
The Cavs had their entire team intact for the first time this season. Forward Antawn Jamison had a season-high 15 points and eight rebounds. He had missed the previous three games with a sore left knee.
He helped the Cavs' bench, which scored 52 points on the night.
Forward J.J. Hickson had 18 points and 10 rebounds, while Daniel Gibson had 15 points and four assists.
Forward Travis Outlaw, a free-agent signee in the offseason, had a game-high 27 points for the Nets.
