Saturday, December 13, 2008. (AP) -- Mike Bibby scored 24 points and Marvin Williams hit the clinching free throws in the Atlanta Hawks' 97-92 victory Saturday night that snapped the Cleveland Cavaliers' 11-game winning streak.
LeBron James had 33 points and nine assists for the Cavs, who overcame a 14-point deficit in the third quarter to take a 70-68 lead early in the fourth on Mo Williams' layup.
The deficit was Cleveland's first in the second half since its last loss, a 96-89 defeat at Detroit on Nov. 19. The Cavs were trying for the first 12-game winning streak in franchise history, having won 11 in a row four times.
After eight lead changes over a 6-minute span in the fourth quarter, Atlanta never trailed after Bibby made it 84-83 with a 10-footer with 4:40 remaining.
