Cavs set up date with Celtics

CLEVELAND, April 28 – Antawn Jamison had 25 points, LeBron James finished just shy of a triple-double and the Cleveland Cavaliers punched their ticket to the quarter-finals by beating Chicago 96-94 on Tuesday.James, who finished the game favouring his right elbow, had 19 points, including 16 in the second half. He also collected 10 rebounds and nine assists as the Cavs won the series four games to one.

Cleveland now meets Boston, who wrapped up their series against Miami in five games on Tuesday. Boston and Cleveland contested a hard fought seven-game series in 2008.

"I think it’s a great matchup. It’s great for basketball – such a classic series," said Boston’s Paul Pierce. "They’re the team to beat right now. They showed it through the course of the season the way they played. We know this is going to be a tough series, another really, really tough series."

James appeared to be unable to lift his right arm late in the game. He was forced to shoot a free throw left-handed with seven seconds left.

Cleveland’s Delonte West finished with 16 points and Shaquille O’Neal had a spirited effort with 14 points and eight rebounds.

Derrick Rose scored 31, but missed a key shot with just over a minute left for the Bulls. Luol Deng added 26 points in the loss.

Boston’s Ray Allen drained five three pointers in the second half and finished with 24 points for the Celtics in a 96-86 win.

Boston advanced with the help of 16 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists from Rajon Rondo.

Heat star Dwyane Wade scored 31 points. He had a franchise playoff record 46 points in game four to help Miami survive an elimination game.

The Celtics made four three-pointers in the first five minutes of the third and took a 67-46 lead with seven minutes left. But Mario Chalmers nailed consecutive three pointers and Wade followed soon after with a pair of free throws and a pair of three-pointers to make it 69-62 with 2:18 left in the third.

Miami cut it to three before Allen drove and drew a foul and goaltending call on Joel Anthony.

    The Supreme Court ruling was retrogressive and all the mainstream media were asking was a three months window or grace period to put their houses in order and prepare for digital migration were they asking for too much ?

      They have been delaying this process since 2011. Endless bickering and frivolous lawsuits. Grant them an extra day extension, and believe you me they still wont be ready even on June 17.
      What you fail to see is that they want to remain on analogue broadcasting as much as possible, hopefully well after the deadline. If these guys had their way, they would actually call for a ban on digital TV broadcasting itself, since it enables new entrants (read competition) and levels the playing field (all stations have equal reach and same signal quality). They are afraid to compete on content and audience appeal. Besides news and sensational partisan “investigative journalism”, what other useful content do NTV, KTN, Citizen & Qtv have?

    Good job CA. We are behind you on this. Just like in 2004 when we accepted to walk to work when Michuki rules were introduced to reign in on the chaotic matuti sector, we are ready to go without these so called leading media houses for three months, six months even forever. We all know that to them, commercial interests are more important than their social responsibility to Kenyans.
    This is why they gladly fanned the PEV in 2008 through irresponsible journalism in the period leading up to the elections. They do not want to be regulated yet even the media in the US and UK do not as much freedom as the Kenyan media has.
    Reign in on them.
