LeBron's 16 not enough as Cavs fall to Celtics

BOSTON (AP) -- Cleveland star LeBron James scored 16 points and
then sat out the fourth quarter as the Boston Celtics rallied from
a 16-point deficit, beating the Cavaliers 101-100 in an exhibition
game Wednesday night.

Gerald Green scored the winning basket on a leaner with 13
seconds left.

Boston trailed 98-83 with 3:33 to play before scoring 18 of the
game's last 20 points.

All of the starters were on the bench and few fans remained when
Green drove and scored from the lane to give Boston the lead. Ryan
Gomes stole the ball from Luke Jackson in the final seconds to
preserve the victory.

James was just 3-for-11 from the floor and 10-for-13 from the
line, and Zydrunas Ilgauskas scored 18 points for the Cavaliers.
Ricky Davis and Justin Reed each had 19 points for Boston.

Boston point guard Delonte West left the game in the third
quarter because of a left ankle sprain.
