Manu Ginobili scores 38 as San Antonio stops Cavaliers win streak

compiled from staff and wire reports

The San Antonio Spurs are not having the kind of season that they’re accustomed to, 53 or more wins. At least that has been the case since they drafted Tim Duncan back in 1977.  This season, the Spurs are (43-28) with 11 games left and 53 wins will only be possible if they go 10-1. That’ll be hard to accomplish with point guard Tony Parker out with an injury. Currently, San Antonio is seventh in the Western Conference, a half-game ahead of Portland.

Since Tony Parker went out of the lineup with an injury, the Spurs are 7-4 and leading the way has been Manu Ginobili who is averaging 23.8 points per game.

Friday night against the NBA’s best team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, Ginobili scored 15 of his 30 points in the fourth quarter, as the Spurs won 102-97, ending the Cavs latest win streak of eight games. The Cavs win streak actually started earlier this month with a win over the Spurs in Cleveland.

It was Ginobili’s third 30-point game since he was forced into the starting lineup when Tony Parker broke his hand on March 6.

Manu Ginobili San Antonio (SA)

LeBron James scored 27 points for Cleveland, but he and his Cavalier teammates watched their second-longest winning streak go by the wayside with six scoreless possessions down the stretch.

The Cavaliers had another negative from the game as center Anderson Varejao left the game in the first half with a sore hamstring and did not return.

LeBron James led the way with 38 points on 15 0f 22 shooting and dished out 9 assists as the Cleveland Cavaliers won their eighth straight game, 105-92 over the New Orleans Hornets, Wednesday night in the “Big Easy”, before a sellout crowd of 18,008.

J.J. Hickson scored 20 to backup Lebron. The Cavs led by as many as 17 points and never trailed after James’ floating jumper tied the game at 10 in the first quarter. Delonte West added 15 points and the-ever consistent Antawn Jamison scored 11 and pulled down 11 rebounds as the Cavs won for the 27th time over a team with a losing record.

The Hornets were led by Marcus Thornton with 20 points and Darren Collison added 17 for the Hornets, who will be eliminated from playoff contention if they lose to Portland on Saturday. David West put in 16 and Chris Paul struggled, finishing with five points and seven assists in 32 minutes of action.

Cleveland shot 57,1 percent and outscored New Orleans in the paint, 58-36.

The Cavaliers (57-15), currently holds the best overall record in the NBA, also improved its record away from home to 26-11, which is the best in the league in that category.

Zydrunas Ilguaskas, played his first game in a month and did fairly well. In 9:41 of action, he scored 1 point, grabbed 3 rebounds and dished out 2 assists.
