Cavs knock out Bulls; LeBron dealing with sore elbow


By Sam Amico, for NBA.com
Posted Wednesday April 28, 2010 12:59AM

CLEVELAND (NBA.com exclusive) -- It began with a Mo Williams 3-pointer and ended with a left-handed free throw from LeBron James. Somewhere in between, the Cleveland Cavaliers found a way to survive the remarkably determined Chicago Bulls and advance to the second round.

It wasn't exactly what the Cavs had in mind, but they will gladly accept their 96-94 victory and 4-1 series win Tuesday. Next up is Boston, which comes to Cleveland for Game 1 of round two on Saturday.

That's about all the Cavs know at this point. And before they start thinking about the Big Three, their focus will be on The Right Elbow. It belongs to James, and it ached so badly Tuesday that he used his weak hand to shoot a free throw with the game on the line.

James' left-hander came with 7.8 seconds remaining and the Cavs clinging to a 96-92 lead. He missed to the right, but the Bulls didn't have enough time to make anything significant happen, as Luol Deng's putback of a missed jumper came at the final buzzer.

Afterward, James said he will have the arm examined between now and the start of the second round. The injury became apparent in Game 4 following a James dunk in the second quarter, when he went to the locker room holding the elbow. But the pain has actually been lingering for a few weeks, James said.

"I don't honestly know what's going on," James said. "It almost feels like when you hit your funny bone. It kind of numbs up. That's exactly what happened after the first [free throw]."

James said he wanted to rest the elbow before the second free throw, asking Cavs coach Mike Brown if the team could utilize one of its two remaining 20-second timeouts. But Brown admittedly didn't understand his star.

"He turned to me and said something about 20-second timeouts and I said, 'Yeah, we have two,'" Brown said. "He made the first one and I didn't know his arm was bothering him. ... Apparently, he wanted to take a timeout to get his elbow stretched or looked at."

Still, other than the final foul shot, there was nothing to indicate James might be hurting. Just the opposite, actually.

After all, he fell just one assist shy of becoming the first player in eight years to compile a triple-double in consecutive playoff games -- finishing with 19 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists.

"I never had a problem with my elbow before," James said. "I can't figure it out. It bothers me more because I don't know what it is. But we'll figure it out."

James did shoot three free throws with his right hand in the final 1:11, and it's a good thing he made them because the Bulls obviously had no plans to surrender. Every time it appeared the Cavs were about to blow it open, the Bulls came charging back.

That was particularly evident in the game's final 3:30. The Cavs had built a seemingly safe 93-84 lead following a 3-pointer from Antawn Jamison. Then Deng and Derrick Rose suddenly got to work, combining to rattle off eight straight points and cut the lead to one with 1:30 to go.

But James finished the job from the line, then rebounded Rose's last-gasp attempt in the lane.

While James may have again been the story, he probably wasn't this game's biggest star. That honor likely belonged to Jamison, who scored 20 of his 25 points in the first half. Also, Delonte West came off the Cavs bench to provide another underrated all-around performance, which included 16 points on 6-for-11 shooting.

The Cavs also received a much-needed return to form from Shaquille O'Neal, who made seven of his nine shots on his way to 14 points and eight boards. None of it, of course, surprise Shaq.

"The two previous games, I was missing shots I don't normally miss," he said. "It was only my second game with my thumbs back. I just wanted to be more aggressive, take my time and just really go up strong. Hands are feeling good, thumbs are feeling pretty good."

Rose scored 31 to lead the Bulls, and Deng added 26.

It marked another tough ending for a young Bulls team that lost in the first round for the second straight season. Interestingly, this was Chicago's first playoff defeat against Cleveland in six meetings.

"Overall, we have a good nucleus of young players," said Bulls coach Vinny Del Negro. "They've had good playoff experience last year [against Boston] and now this year. We have a lot of flexibility, salary cap-wise, over the summer. I'm proud of the guys. I'm proud of how hard they played, how they stuck together through a lot of adversity and a lot of distractions. They battled and I'm proud of that."

It's been reported that Del Negro might not return, but his superstar hopes to have a say in all that. Especially since, as Rose indicated, he and Del Negro came to the Bulls together.

"I would vote yes," Rose said. "He let me have my freedom, but still coached me and let me make my mistakes. I watched film almost every day. He taught me a lot just on defense and on offense, and what I was supposed to do."
