Maybe LeBron James should take a night off more often.
Sasha Pavlovic scored a career-high 25 points and Larry Hughes added 25 to lead the Cavaliers to a season-high sixth straight victory, 124-100, over the Sacramento Kings last night in Cleveland.
James was a late scratch because of back spasms.
The Cavaliers are 3-0 this season without their superstar and 9-2 without him since he joined the team in 2003-04.
All five starters scored in double figures as the Cavaliers tied a season high for points. They shot 54 percent and easily handled the lackluster Kings, who have lost three straight.
James was to travel with the team to Memphis today and be reevaluated.
