LeBron, Cavs crown Kings

CLEVELAND (AP) — LeBron James scored 23 of his 34 points in the second half, Antawn Jamison added 26 and the Cleveland Cavaliers welcomed back adored center Zydrunas Ilgauskas with a 97-90 victory over the ailing and aching Sacramento Kings on Sunday.

With Cleveland leading by four, James made a crucial 3-pointer with 2:02 left and then had a rebound and steal to help seal it for the Cavs, who have won 28 straight games against teams with losing records. Cleveland went 10-0 against the Pacific Division this season.

Beno Udrih had his first career triple-double (18 points, 15 assists and 10 rebounds) for the Kings, who because of injuries dressed only eight players and then lost forward Dominic McGuire in the first quarter with a foot injury.
