|Cleveland Beats Chicago; Wins Series in Five
|CLEVELAND (AP) -- Antawn Jamison scored 25 points, LeBron James just missed a triple-double and the Cleveland Cavaliers advanced to a playoff date with Boston by beating Chicago 96-94 in Game 5 Tuesday night in perhaps Vinny Del Negro's final game as Bulls coach.
James, favoring a tender right elbow that appears to hurt worse than he's letting on, scored 19 points, 16 in the second half, and added 10 rebounds and nine assists as the Cavs finally saddled the stubborn Bulls to win the series 4-1. Unable to lift his right arm, James was forced to shoot a free throw left-handed with 7.8 seconds left.
Cleveland will face the Celtics, reuniting teams that don't like each other and who played a testy seven-game series in 2008.
