Notebook: Cavaliers 114, Nets 85


Brian Dulik, for NBA.com
Posted Thu Apr 17, 2014 12:08 AM - Updated Thu Apr 17, 2014 12:08 AM

THE FACT: Brooklyn finished with the sixth seed in the Eastern Conference and will play third-seeded Toronto in the first round of the NBA playoffs.

THE LEAD: Center Tyler Zeller scored a game-high 22 points and grabbed 11 rebounds as the Cleveland Cavaliers pulled away for a 114-85 victory over the Brooklyn Nets. Shooting guard Dion Waiters added 19 points for the Cavaliers (33-49), while All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving chipped in 15 points, five assists, and three steals. Power forward Andray Blatche and small forward Marcus Thornton scored 20 points apiece for the Nets (44-38), who only used seven players. Brooklyn entered the evening in fifth place in the East, but dropped one spot when Washington won in Boston.

QUOTABLE: "The playoffs are when you prove yourself, so I can't wait to get started. The biggest thing for us, having a veteran team, is being fresh. Even though it's a new season and a different mentality, I think we're in a pretty good spot."
-- Nets center Mason Plumlee

THE STAT: The Cavaliers failed to qualify for the postseason for the fourth year in a row -- and are 97-215 since LeBron James left for Miami as a free agent in July 2010. Cleveland did avoid a 50-loss season by outscoring short-handed Brooklyn 63-36 in the second half. "You've got to go into the offseason with confidence and knowing you can do it," Zeller said. "We really fought hard every game when we had a chance to make the playoffs, so we can be proud of that." The Cavaliers were eliminated from playoff contention on April 9.

TURNING POINT: Ninety minutes before tipoff, Brooklyn coach Jason Kidd announced that he was giving all of his key veterans the night off. Small forward Paul Pierce (right hip pointer), center Kevin Garnett (back spasms), and small forward Alan Anderson (abdominal strain) were in uniform, but would not have played unless there was an emergency. Shooting guard Joe Johnson (right calf soreness), point guard Deron Williams (right knee tendinitis), and point guard Shaun Livingston (right big toe sprain) did not dress.

QUOTABLE II: "Paul and Kevin have played thousands of games, so they know how to play when situations go right and when they go wrong. They also know how to avoid the bad things in the playoffs, and that's going to be a big deal for us."
-- Nets power forward Andrei Kirilenko

HOT: The Nets won 34 of their final 51 games after starting the season 10-21. ... Brooklyn rookie point guard Jorge Gutierrez scored a career-high 13 points in 33 minutes before fouling out. ... Nets center Jason Collins scored a season-best eight points in his first start of 2013-2014. ... Plumlee dished out a career-high six assists. ... Blatche had a game-best 12 rebounds. ... Cavaliers power forward Tristan Thompson played in his 206th straight contest -- dating back to Feb. 10, 2012 -- and notched his 36th double-double of the season with 11 points and 10 boards. ... Cleveland rookie shooting guard Carrick Felix scored a career-high 10 points in his return from a 37-game absence because of a left patellar stress fracture.

NOT: The Cavaliers' 33-49 record was their worst in six seasons under coach Mike Brown, who returned to the franchise last April. ... Cleveland rookie power forward Anthony Bennett -- the No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft -- had seven points and seven boards in his first action since March 8. ... Cavaliers shooting guard C.J. Miles (left ankle sprain) sat out 26 of the final 27 games. ... Cleveland point guard Jarrett Jack missed eight of his 10 shots, but had a game-high nine assists. ... Nets shooting guard Marquis Teague went 2-for-9 from the field with a game-high four turnovers. ... Brooklyn, which went 1-4 in its final five regular season contests, split its four games against playoff foe Toronto.

QUOTABLE III: "(Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert) gave me this opportunity, and I wouldn't be sitting in this seat without him. It's his team, and whatever decision he makes with anything (including my future as coach), I'm going to support him."
-- Mike Brown

GOOD MOVE: The Cavaliers gave the Quicken Loans Arena crowd of 19,842 plenty to cheer about in their home finale. Cleveland's 29-point margin of victory equaled its largest of the season and followed a classy pregame address to the fans by Irving. "This night is all about the city and the fans who have given us great support all season, no matter what," the third-year pro said. "We fell short of our goal of making the playoffs, but can hold our heads high walking out of the building tonight."

BAD MOVE: The Cavaliers have made myriad terrible moves since James exited as a free agent four years ago, but can make a very smart one this summer by offering Irving a contract extension. "If they do, that would be exciting and I'll make the best decision for me and my family," the 2014 NBA All-Star Game MVP said. "I've been a part of this and I want to continue to be part of this. We're making strides in the right direction, and I want to be part of something special in Cleveland."

NOTABLE: The Nets also played without small forward Mirza Teletovic (personal reasons) and center Brook Lopez (right foot fracture). Teletovic will rejoin Brooklyn in time for its postseason opener. ... The Cavaliers went 17-16 after firing general manager Chris Grant. ... Cleveland's inactives were small forward Luol Deng (lower back soreness), shooting guard C.J. Miles (left ankle sprain), and rookie shooting guard Carrick Felix (left patellar stress fracture). ... Deng received the Walter J. Kennedy Citizenship Award prior to the game. The league-wide honor is presented annually by the Professional Basketball Writers Association.

UP NEXT: For the Nets, Saturday @ Toronto in Game 1 of the playoffs.
