Clippers Lose 126-119 In Overtime, Cavaliers Snap NBA Record 26-Game Losing Streak

Cleveland, OH (Sports Network) - Apparently, all Cleveland needed to snap its 26-game losing streak was a little more Mo. Mo Williams returned to the court for the first time since January 15, posting 17 points and 14 assists to spark the Cavaliers to a 126-119 overtime victory against the Los Angeles Clippers. The Cavaliers broke the longest losing streak in NBA history, and won for the first time since a 109-102 overtime decision against the New York Knicks on December 18.

While Williams was present for most of the losses early in the Cavaliers' streak, his performance off the bench Friday enabled teammates to focus on scoring. Antawn Jamison poured in 35 points, including a crucial three-pointer with 22.1 seconds left in overtime. J.J. Hickson had 27 with 14 rebounds, and blocked a potential game-winning layup at the end of regulation, while Daniel Gibson scored nine of his 17 points in overtime.

Blake Griffin grabbed 13 rebounds and scored 32 points, but also made just 11 of 26 field goals. Baron Davis had 26 points and seven assists for the Clippers, but was ejected in the final minute of overtime for arguing a call. The Clippers fell to 1-4 on their current eight-game road trip, which still has stops in Toronto, Milwaukee, and Minnesota before the All-Star break. The Clippers' next game in Sunday afternoon against the Raptors.
