LeBron James scored 51 points, including six in overtime, and the Cleveland Cavaliers clinched the Central Division title Friday night with a 126-123 victory over the Sacramento Kings.
Although James failed to extend his triple-double streak to four
games, he was clearly the difference, scoring a combined 22 points
in the fourth quarter and overtime. He added nine assists while
falling four points short of his career high.
Anderson Varejao had 18 points and 12 rebounds for Cleveland,
which has won four straight and eight of nine to secure just the
second division title in franchise history. Wally Szczerbiak scored
12 points and Mo Williams had 10.
Kevin Martin scored 34 points for the Kings, who fell to 0-25
against the Eastern Conference.
