Cleveland Cavaliers Battle Houston Rockets At Quicken Loans Arena

The Cleveland Cavaliers have returned from the All-Star break with swirling trade winds before Thursday's NBA trade deadline.  There is still work to do, however, at that starts tonight against the Houston Rockets.  The Cavaliers used a balanced scoring attack led by 14 points from Antawn Jamison to take a 65-61 lead at halftime.   Ramon Sessions, whose play of late has thrust him to the top of several contenders want list prior to the deadline, has 13 points and 5 assists.

The Rockets were led by 13 points from Kevin Martin and 13 for Chase Budinger off the bench.  Luis Scola has 16 points and 6 rebounds while Chuck Hayes already has 15 rebounds for the Rockets who come into the contest at 27-31.

Cleveland has won two of their last three games, including their upset win over the Los Angeles Lakers last week.
