Cavs take out Bulls

ASSOCIATED PRESS

CLEVELAND — 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 on 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.
