CLEVELAND | Ramon Sessions scored 27 points, J.J. Hickson added 15 and the Cleveland Cavaliers closed out one of the worst seasons in franchise history — and first in eight years without LeBron James — by beating the Washington Wizards 100-93 on Wednesday night.

The Cavs finished 19-63, an extreme drop after going a league-best 61-21 during the regular season in 2010 before James bolted as a free agent last summer.

But that didn’t matter in the closing seconds as Cleveland fans saluted the Cavs with a rousing ovation. Cleveland won four of its final six games and went 6-6 in its last 12.

Andray Blatche scored 20 and Yi Jianlian had 12 rebounds for the Wizards. Washington’s John Wall scored 10 points but played only 24 minutes in the final game of his strong rookie season.
