DALLAS -- LeBron James snapped a third-quarter tie with a flying rebound-layup, then Mo Williams broke things open early in the fourth, sending the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 100-81 victory over the Dallas Mavericks on Monday night.
James was only 8-of-20, but scored 29 points and took over when
his team needed it. Cleveland let a 16-point lead fritter into a
tie at 63, then Daniel Gibson missed a jumper from the corner, only
to see James zoom in, grab the rebound and bank it in, all in one
motion. He followed with a three-point play and a pair of free
Dirk Nowitzki was held to eight points on 3-of-11 shooting as
the Mavericks fell to 0-2 at home. Their only lead was 2-0, on a
jumper by Nowitzki.
