Cavaliers Vs. Raptors: Big Fourth Quarter Helps Cavs Snap Skid, Win 84-80

The Cleveland Cavaliers traveled to Toronto on Friday night needing a win in the worst possible way. Nine losses in a row, they had to beat the Raptors, fresh off an upset over Philadelphia, to snap the skid. They did just that, beating Toronto with fourth period offensive explosion for a 84-80 win.

Cleveland scored 33 points in the fourth quarter to overcome a 12-point deficit after three periods of play. Antwan Jamison scored 24 points and had eight rebounds. Leston Hudson had 23 points to salvage a Cavs team that shot just 34 percent from the field.

DeMar DeRozan led Toronto with 28 points. Andrea Bargnani was next with 19, and no other player finished in double figures for the Raptors.

The Cavs are in New Jersey on Sunday to take on the Nets.
