Jamison steps up production in big way

The Sports Xchange

--Forward Antawn Jamison is riding an incredible roll in the last week. He fired in a season-high 34 points on Friday in the loss to Milwaukee. His vast array of wild shots in the lane have been dropping. In his last six games, Jamison is averaging 23.5 points and 9.5 rebounds and shooting 48.2 percent from the field.

--Guard Ramon Sessions has averaged 18.3 points and 12.3 assists in his three games in the starting lineup in place of Kyrie Irving. He's now soared past Irving as the Cavs' assist leader, 5.7 to 5.1. It's been almost a year since a Cavs player had back-to-back double-digit assist nights. Sessions had 13 and 16 assists, respectively, against the Los Angeles Clippers and Milwaukee. The last time it happened was by Sessions on Feb. 7, 2011 vs. Dallas (13) and Feb. 9, 2011 against Detroit (12).

"He's such a high-energy guy. He gets out on all the pick-and-rolls. He's a great offensive rebounder. He sets good screens. He brings a tremendous amount of energy for them. Obviously, they'll have to go to the bench. That takes away from your bench. That has a trickle-down effect." -- Philadelphia coach Doug Collins on how much the Cavs will miss Anderson Varejao.
