Notebook: Cavaliers 102, Raptors 100


Brian Dulik, for NBA.com
Posted Tue Mar 25, 2014 11:47 PM - Updated Tue Mar 25, 2014 11:47 PM

THE FACT: Atlantic Division leader Toronto was held to one field goal over the final 6:44 in a loss at the Cavaliers.

THE LEAD: Shooting guard Dion Waiters scored a game-high 24 points and power forward Tristan Thompson collected 15 points and 13 rebounds as the Cleveland Cavaliers escaped with a 102-100 win over the Toronto Raptors. Small forward Luol Deng added 19 points, six rebounds, and seven assists for the Cavaliers, who led 74-53 in the third quarter. Point guard Kyle Lowry paced the Raptors with 22 points and 10 assists, while small forward Terrence Ross scored 16 points. Toronto fell into fourth place in the Eastern Conference, one-half game behind Chicago.

QUOTABLE: "Keeping our composure, that was the biggest thing for us tonight. We didn't get rattled and we made plays when we needed them. We kept pushing it, making the easy play, and playing with each other."
-- Dion Waiters

THE STAT: The Cavaliers are 12-11 since firing general manager Chris Grant on Feb. 6, proving that their young players have bought into coach Mike Brown's defense-first system. "Maybe earlier in the season, we might have lost a game like that, especially down the stretch when they made a run," said Brown, who is 300-182 in six seasons with Cleveland. "But our guys found a way to win." Brown's 300 wins rank third in team history behind Lenny Wilkens (316) and Bill Fitch (304).

TURNING POINT: The Cavaliers held a 102-100 lead with 7.8 seconds left when center Anderson Varejao threw their inbounds pass directly off the basket padding, over Deng's head. Toronto, though, failed to capitalize on its good fortune. Raptors point guard Greivis Vasquez received the ball on the left wing and attempted to drive past Cleveland small forward Alonzo Gee, but lost his footing and the basketball. Deng grabbed the loose ball and ran out the final two seconds.

QUOTABLE II: "It was just a bad play for me. I'll take responsibility. I'm a man. I was trying to spin, going to my weak hand, and I lost my balance. That's a good learning experience for me because I like being in during crunch time."
-- Greivis Vasquez

HOT: Cavaliers point guard Jarrett Jack is averaging 16.6 points and 5.8 assists since being shifted from shooting guard back to his natural position five games ago. ... Waiters is averaging team highs of 23.8 points, 6.4 assists, and 41.2 minutes since returning to the starting lineup on March 18. ... Thompson leads Cleveland with 31 double-doubles. ... Raptors power forward Amir Johnson shot 6-for-9 from the field and grabbed a team-best nine rebounds. ... Toronto is 32-19 since Dec. 9. ... The Raptors' magic number for clinching their first playoff berth since 2008 is three.

NOT: Raptors shooting guard DeMar DeRozan -- a 2014 NBA All-Star -- was 5-for-16 on field goal attempts. ... Toronto center Jonas Valanciunas was a minus-27 in 18 minutes. ... Lowry was forced to leave the court twice when his upset stomach flared up. ... Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving (left biceps strain) missed his fifth consecutive game. ... Cleveland shooting guard C.J. Miles (left ankle sprain) was unavailable for the 16th time in the last 17 contests. ... Waiters committed a 24-second violation in the fourth quarter for one of his game-high four turnovers.

QUOTABLE III: "It's easy to get up for Oklahoma City, Miami and Indiana, but the teams that aren't in the playoff picture are playing for something too. They're playing for pride, which is probably a little bit more dangerous."
-- Raptors coach Dwane Casey

GOOD MOVE: For one of the few times this season, the Cavaliers didn't panic after squandering a large second-half lead at home. Toronto used a 42-20 run to pull in front 95-94 on a Vasquez 3-pointer with 6:45 left, but Cleveland immediately re-took the lead for good on a Jack jumper. "I'm not really worried about the negative part, our mindset has to be that we got the win tonight," Deng said. "We've won two in a row and we have to focus on tomorrow."

BAD MOVE: Casey continues to give Raptors shooting guard John Salmons significant time because general manager Masai Uriji did not provide him with another option. The 34-year-old Salmons is shooting 35.4 percent from the field while averaging 23.0 minutes off the bench. "John wasn't shooting the ball well in Sacramento before he came here, but he gives us so much more than just that," Casey said. Salmons shot 1-for-4 against the Cavaliers.

NOTABLE: Raptors power forward Patrick Patterson (right ulnar collateral sprain) missed his 10th consecutive game, but was cleared to resume contact in practice on Monday. Rookie point guard Dwight Buycks was Toronto's other inactive. ... The Cavaliers also played without rookie power forward Anthony Bennett (left patellar strain), rookie small forward Sergey Karasev (right knee tendinitis), and rookie shooting guard Carrick Felix (left patellar stress fracture). "All of our guys are getting closer, but I can't put a timeline on it," Brown said. "Our medical staff is just trying to be real cautious."

UP NEXT: For the Raptors, Wednesday @ Boston, Friday vs. Boston, Sunday @ Orlando. For the Cavaliers, Wednesday @ Detroit, Friday @ Brooklyn, Sunday vs. Indiana.
