NBA ROUNDUP

James Repeats Feat as Cavaliers Cruise

January 23, 2005|From Associated Press

LeBron James had his second triple-double in three games, getting 28 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists Saturday night to lead Cleveland to a 105-87 victory over Golden State at Oakland.

Just three nights after he became the youngest player in NBA history with a triple-double, James duplicated the feat in an easy victory over the Warriors, who lost for the 11th time in 12 games.

James secured his latest statistical feat on a pass with 29 seconds left to Zydrunas Ilgauskas, who made a three-point basket.

Although James appeared frustrated at several points Saturday night, even getting a technical foul from referee Steve Javie for protesting a call in the third quarter, the 20-year-old star took control in the fourth.

He keyed a 15-3 run in the fourth with eight consecutive points -- including a vicious dunk on a cross-court pass from Eric Snow with 6:53 left.

Jason Richardson scored 22 points for the Warriors, who were dismal in front of their second sellout of the season. Mike Dunleavy drew jeers from the crowd for his three-for-12 shooting performance.

The Cavaliers won three of six on their trip.

*

Minnesota 92, Portland 83 -- Kevin Garnett had 14 points and 16 rebounds at Portland, Ore., to lead the Timberwolves to their second road victory in as many days.

Portland dropped its sixth in a row, the Trail Blazers' longest losing streak since 2001-02.

Memphis 110, Utah 94 -- Pau Gasol scored 23 points and Shane Battier had 16 to help the Grizzlies snap a five-game losing streak in Salt Lake City.

Mehmet Okur led the Jazz with 22 points in 25 minutes off the bench. Carlos Boozer had 17 points and 10 rebounds.

*

Washington 95, Indiana 93 -- Antawn Jamison's driving layup with 0.4 of a second left lifted the Wizards past the Pacers at Indianapolis.

After Jermaine O'Neal gave Indiana a 93-91 lead with 39.7 seconds left, Gilbert Arenas made a jump shot and the Wizards forced a shot clock violation to get the ball back with 4.5 seconds to play to set up Jamison's winning basket.

*

Allen Iverson had 38 points for Philadelphia.

*

Chicago 100, Detroit 89 -- Kirk Hinrich had 24 points and nine assists at Auburn Hills, Mich., as the Bulls scored their second victory at the Palace in less than a month.

The Bulls, who have won 17 of their last 23, hadn't won twice in Detroit in one season since 1995-96. Richard Hamilton had a game-high 32 points for the Pistons, who have lost three in a row.

*

Atlanta 100, Boston 96 -- Al Harrington scored 21 points and made all six of his free throws in the last two minutes to help the Hawks overcome a 17-point deficit and win at Atlanta.

The Celtics have lost nine in a row on the road.

Antoine Walker led the Hawks with 29 points against his former team.
