Murray shines for Bobcats as Cavs' run comes to end

Ronald Murray scores a crucial three-pointer with 56 seconds remaining as the Bobcats end the Cleveland Cavaliers' seven-game winning streak

Ronald Murray of the Charlotte Bobcats scored a crucial three-pointer with 56 seconds remaining as they ended the Cleveland Cavaliers' seven-game winning streak with a 91-88 victory on Sunday. Murray put Charlotte up 86-83 and the Cavaliers, who had won 11 consecutive games at home, could not recover with LeBron James missing what would have been a game-tying three-pointer as time expired. "We hung in and got a win on the road against a great team," Charlotte coach Larry Brown said. "We're all happy." Toronto's Chris Bosh scored 22 points to become the leading scorer in Raptors history as the Canadian side beat San Antonio 91-86. Bosh, who also had 15 rebounds, made a third quarter jump shot to eclipse Vince Carter's mark of 9,420 points. "I was thinking it would be really nice to set the record and everything, but I wanted to win, that was the main focus of the whole game," Bosh said. sports@thenational.ae
