Unhappy Cavaliers thump Spurs 101-81 to stop slump

Cavaliers thump Spurs 101-81 to stop slump

Back to basics. Back to winning. The Cleveland Cavaliers didn't need long to remember what's made them so good.

Locked into attack mode from the start, LeBron James scored 38 points - 18 in the first quarter - and Mo Williams and Delonte West added 22 apiece as the NBA's best home team avoided its first three-game losing streak by beating the San Antonio Spurs 101-81 on Sunday.

Embarrassed in a 29-point loss Friday in Orlando, a humbling defeat that came one day after a humiliating loss at lowly Washington, Cleveland played with purpose at both ends and improved to 37-1 at home.

``It was a wake-up call,'' Williams said. ``We didn't get overexcited about the losses. It just kind of hit everybody the same way. That's why we're such a good team. We didn't talk about it. We just put it behind us. We knew what we had to do and everybody came out and responded real well.''

Timing can be everything in the NBA, and Spurs coach Gregg Popovich was certain the Cavaliers (62-15) would be a handful.

``We knew we were in trouble,'' he said. ``I want to find out who the scheduler was that made us play this game after they lost their last two.''

James, Williams and West shot a combined 33-of-51 for the Cavs, who are the 38th team in league history to win at least 62 games.

If they can win their final three home games, the Cavs will match the 1985-86 Boston Celtics (40-1) for the best home record in NBA history. Home-court advantage in the playoffs is huge for Cleveland, which is 0-2 at Boston and Orlando this season.

Beatdown indeed.

Only reason why is cuz the Pacers tired them out too bad a couple nights ago.
