WASHINGTON -- LeBron James was called for traveling while driving for the potential tying basket with 2.3 seconds left Sunday, and his Cleveland Cavaliers lost to the Eastern Conference-worst Washington Wizards 80-77.
James finished with 30 points, 10 assists and six rebounds. But nobody else on the Cavaliers scored more than 13, and they were held to their lowest point total this season.
Antawn Jamison's 26 points and 13 rebounds included a baseline jumper with 10.5 seconds left that put Washington ahead 79-77. Cleveland's next possession ended with James' turnover, and Caron Butler added a free throw for the final margin.
The Cavaliers trailed by as many as 16 in the fourth quarter before mounting a comeback after coach Mike Brown was ejected for running onto the court to protest an offensive foul call against James.
