Cavs snap Raptors


CLEVELAND, April 7- LeBron James had 19 points and 13 assists to lead Cleveland to a 113-101 win Tuesday over Toronto who lost all-star forward Chris Bosh with a broken bone in his face.

Bosh was struck by Antawn Jamison and left the game bleeding from his nose and mouth in the first quarter.

Jamison scored 20, while Anthony Parker had a season-high 18 points, to go with eight rebounds and six assists for the Cavaliers, who have won 11 straight at home.

After the game, the Raptors announced that Bosh suffered a "maxilla and nasal fracture to the right side of his face."

Bosh, who returned to Quicken Loans Arena in the fourth quarter, but was expected to head back to the hospital for further tests and would not travel with the team Tuesday night.

"I didn’t think it was that severe," Jamison said. "But once he went down, you knew it was. I didn’t think I hit him that hard at all. It was just a bad angle and an unfortunate play. Freakish things like that happen."

Mo Williams had 14 and 12 assists for Cleveland, which has wrapped up the NBA’s best record and home-court advantage throughout the playoffs.

Jarrett Jack scored 23 for the Raptors, who also lost forward Antoine Wright in the third quarter with an ankle injury.

Bosh’s injury came at a bad time for the Raptors, who entered the night clinging to the eighth playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
