Byron Scott's ejection sparks Cavaliers to end nine game losing streak

Cavaliers beat the Raptors 84-80

TORONTO - Antawn Jamison scored 16 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter, Lester Hudson had a career-high 23 points and the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Toronto Raptors 84-80 Friday night, snapping a nine-game losing streak.

Samardo Samuels scored 10 points as Cleveland outscored the Raptors 33-17 in the fourth to avoid a sixth loss in seven meetings with Toronto. The Raptors shot 5 for 19 in the fourth.

Cavaliers coach Byron Scott wasn't around to see his team's first win since March 19 at New Jersey. Scott was ejected with 53 seconds left in the first half after a brief but fiery argument with referee Kane Fitzgerald. It was the first ejection of the season for Scott, who was replaced by assistant Paul Pressey.
