=== Cleveland Cavaliers Team Report – January 29 ===
(Sports Network) – Dajuan Wagner scored the game-winning basket with 7.4
seconds left to lift Cleveland to a 94-93 victory over Miami at Gund Arena.
Zydrunas Ilgauskas poured in a season-high 30 points and grabbed 11 rebounds
for the Cavaliers, who have won five of their last six games and matched their
win total from last season (17).
Cleveland, which played without forward Carlos Boozer, who was attending a
funeral for his grandmother, received 27 points from LeBron James while Wagner
finished with 10.
Trailing by a point, Wagner missed a three-point attempt with 12 seconds
remaining, but the long rebound came right back to him. The guard then drove
to the basket and scored on a finger roll to give the Cavaliers a 94-93
advantage with 7.4 seconds to play.
The Heat had a chance to win in the final seconds, as Eddie Jones drove the
lane and fed Dwyane Wade underneath. However, Wade had his shot blocked by Ira
Newble and the ball went out of bounds just as time expired.
The Cavaliers, who won for the first time this season on a Wednesday (1-8),
have won six of their last eight games at home and are 13-9 in their gym this
Cleveland will return to action on Friday against Milwaukee.
