Cavs continue home mastery

CLEVELAND, April 9 – LeBron James scored 21 points in only three quarters of work Wednesday as the Cleveland Cavaliers improved to 38-1 at home this season with a 98-86 victory over Washington.

CAVS_MO_WILLIAMSThe Cavaliers improved their National Basketball Association-best overall record to 63-15, pulling one game ahead of the Los Angeles Lakers in the race for the NBA’s top overall record and a home-court edge throughout the playoffs.

"We’re just trying to get better," James said. "We don’t want to take a step back with four games to go."

Mo Williams added 14 points while Lithuania’s Zydrunas Ilgauskas grabbed a game-high 13 rebounds for the Cavaliers. Nick Young led the Wizards with 16 points.

Should Cleveland capture two final home games against Boston on Sunday and Philadelphia next Wednesday, the Cavaliers will finish 40-1 at home for the season to match the all-time best NBA home mark set by Boston in the 1985-1986 campaign.

"What we’ve been able to do at home is unbelievable," James said. "It’s something that we’ll be able to talk about long after we’re done playing."

The only home loss for the Cavaliers this season came at the hands of the Lakers in February.

One more Cleveland victory or loss by the reigning NBA champion Boston Celtics would clinch the Eastern Conference crown for the Cavaliers.

Ben Wallace came off the Cleveland bench for seven points and six rebounds in 18 minutes in his first action since suffering a broken right leg on February 16.
