CLEVELAND (AP) - Mo Williams strengthened his argument to be an
All-Star by scoring a career-high 43 points and LeBron James recorded his 20th career triple-double as the Cleveland Cavaliers improved to 21-0 at home, beating the Sacramento Kings 117-110 on Tuesday night.
Williams, who is hoping to join James on the Eastern Conference team at next month's All-Star game in Phoenix, had his finest game since joining the Cavs. The do-it-all point guard went 15-of-24 from the floor, made a career-best seven 3-pointers and added 11 assists and eight rebounds.
James scored 23 points with 15 rebounds and 11 assists, his third triple-double this season. He picked up assist No. 10 in the third quarter with a pass to Williams, who knocked down three consecutive 3s - all off feeds from James - in a span of 1:05. Williams was so good, James only had to take 10 shots.
