Cavs end three-game skid with win over Bobcats

By Jason Lloyd Published: April 5, 2011

J.J. Hickson had 16 points and 19 rebounds, one short of his career high, and the Cleveland Cavaliers dealt a crushing blow to the Charlotte Bobcats’ playoff hopes with a 99-89 victory Tuesday at Quicken Loans Arena.

The Cavs opened an 18-point lead after the first quarter and weren’t really threatened again, although the Bobcats temporarily cut the lead to four on a basket by Gerald Henderson with 2:51 left. They couldn’t get any closer.

Ramon Sessions had 18 points off the bench and Ryan Hollins had 16 points on 7 of 7 shooting for the Cavs, who snapped a three-game losing streak while placing seven players in double figures.

D.J. Augustin had 19 points and Henderson had 15 for the Bobcats, who fell 2 ½ games behind the Indiana Pacers with five left to play. The Pacers also hold the tiebreaker over the Bobcats, whose next two games are against Miami and Orlando.
