Cavs turn to defense to seal win over 76ers


Cavs turn to defense to seal win over 76ers

Philadelphia ended a nearly five-minute drought with four straight points, but James drove the lane and blasted a two-handed dunk to put the finishing touches on Cleveland's win. The slam came moments after his headband was retrieved.

"I didn't even know who I was when my headband got knocked off," James said. "I couldn't function without it."

The Cavs' early season has been a streaky one. They are essentially resting O'Neal for the second half and a title push, and the team is still trying to figure out what to do with guard Delonte West, who has been working through personal and legal issues.

"They're going for the gold, man," Jordan said. "They're doing what they think is necessary to win the championship."

And for the Cavs, it all starts with defense.

Notes

In his last eight games, James is averaging 32.6 points on 55 percent (88 of 159) shooting, 8.3 assists and 6.1 rebounds. ... West played just four minutes. ... Allen Iverson's toughness and scoring touch once symbolized the Sixers. However, the guard remains without a team, a fact James finds unfortunate. "He's a person I watched growing up," James said. "It's kind of strange not having him. It doesn't seem right." Iverson was recently released by Memphis. On Friday, the Knicks announced they would not sign him. ... Sixers G Jason Kapono sat out with a sprained left ankle. ... Ilgauskas played in his 721st career game, second most in Cavs history behind general manager Danny Ferry's 723.
