Cavs-Sixers In-Game Report

By Jason Lloyd Published: February 27, 2011

End 3Q: Sixers 75, Cavs 564
* More bad news for the Cavs: Antawn Jamison fractured the pinky on his left hand and won't return. Just when the injury bug seemed to be leaving...

* The Cavs' energy level has been slipping since an impressive first quarter. It flatlined in the third.

* The Cavs are shooting 2 of 10 on 3-pointers and they've been outrebounded by the Sixers 34-28. The Sixers have also scored 42 points in the paint.

* J.J. Hickson has 18 points and 11 rebounds. Jamison left with 16 points and four rebounds.

Half: Sixers 49, Cavs 43
* The Cavs' 12-point lead in the first quarter was quickly erased when the Sixers shot 52 percent in the second (11 of 21).

* The Cavs didn't help their own cause by going 10 of 16 at the three-throw line. They're giving away points they can't afford to sacrifice.

* Baron Davis spent the first half sitting next to the coaches, not at the end of the bench with the rest of the inactives. Interesting.

* Thaddeus Young had eight points in the second quarter off the bench for the Sixers after Lou Williams had eight points off the bench for them in the first.

* J.J. Hickson has 14 points and nine rebounds, while Antawn Jamison has 12 points and four rebounds. They've combined for 60 percent of the Cavs' points.

* The Cavs
End 1Q: Cavs 23, Sixers 22
* The Cavs are sticking with the regulars tonight. No Baron Davis, Luke Harangody or Semih Erden, since none of them have practiced yet. Harangody and Erden will likely get some minutes Wednesday, Davis will play only if his knee is OK.

* The Cavs played terrific defense for the game's first 10 minutes, then let Lou Williams ruin it with a two-minute flurry. The Cavs led 21-10 before Sweet Lou dropped a couple of 3-pointers and hit a driving layup. The Sixers were shooting in the low 30s most of the quarter, but ended shooting 40 percent.

* J.J. Hickson is active around the glass again with 10 points and four rebounds. He's running the floor well, calling for the ball and looking energetic.

* Byron Scott is clearing the bench early, going to Alonzo Gee and Samardo Samuels early in the game. Gee played well in Friday's win over the Knicks and is getting rewarded with another chance.
