Ramon Sessions had 27 points in his return to the starting lineup, J.J. Hickson had 15 points and 13 rebounds and the Cavs avoided history with their 100-93 home victory over the Washington Wizards.
The Cavs finish the season 19-63, two games better than the Minnesota Timberwolves to avoid becoming the first team in league history to finish with the league’s worst record a season after earning the best.
The Cavs trailed by 12 after the first quarter, but spent the rest of the night digging out of it. They scored 10 of the first 12 points of the fourth quarter to take the lead and Anthony Parker hit a big 3-pointer in the final two minutes to seal the win. Sessions started in place of Baron Davis, who missed the finale with back spasms.
Andray Blatche had 20 points and seven rebounds for the Wizards after grabbing 16 offensive rebounds in a victory over the Cavs two weeks ago. Maurice Evans added 15 points for the Wizards, who finish the season 23-59.
