Mo Williams made all seven of his 3-point attempts, LeBron James scored 25 points with 12 assists, and Cleveland rebounded from a lackluster loss in Charlotte by beating the road-tested Dallas Mavericks last night, 111-95.
Williams finished with 25 points and Anderson Varejao scored 15 - 13 in the second half - for the Cavaliers, who were beaten, 94-87, by the Bobcats Friday in center Shaquille O’Neal’s return after missing six games with a shoulder injury.
Dirk Nowitzki scored 27 for Dallas.
Bobcats 92, Wizards 76 - Gerald Wallace had 14 points and 14 rebounds, Tyson Chandler and Raymond Felton each scored 12 points, and Charlotte rolled over visiting Washington.
The win was the Bobcats’ fourth straight - their longest winning streak since a five-game run from Feb. 25-March 7, 2009. The Wizards failed in their attempt to win three in a row for the first time since April 2008.
Charlotte never trailed and held Washington to 13 points in the second quarter to take a 42-32 halftime lead.
Jazz 108, Blazers 92 - Carlos Boozer had 26 points and 12 rebounds to lead Utah over visiting Portland.
Deron Williams added 24 points and 15 assists for the Jazz, who won for the fifth time in six games. Brandon Roy scored 19 points and LaMarcus Aldridge added 14 for Portland.
Utah never trailed and shot a season-best 61.4 percent from the field.
Magic 100, Bucks 98 - Vince Carter scored 19 of his 25 points in the second half after getting four stitches, and Dwight Howard added 25 points and 20 rebounds to rally visiting Orlando.
The Magic trailed by 15 midway through the third quarter before Carter led the charge. He missed a majority of the first half after needing stitches for a cut lip when he was inadvertently hit in the face during the first quarter.
Lakers 130, Warriors 97 - Pau Gasol scored 22 points to lead seven players in double figures, and Los Angeles won at Golden State for its fifth straight victory.
Kobe Bryant added 20 points, 6 rebounds, 6 assists, and 5 steals after a slow start to help the Lakers to their highest point total of the season.
