Cavaliers Pummel the Warriors 105-87
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) _ LeBron James had his second triple-double in three games, getting 28 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists in the Cleveland Cavaliers’ 105-87 victory over the Golden State Warriors on Saturday night.
Just three nights after he became the youngest player in NBA history with a triple-double, James duplicated the feat in an easy win over the Warriors, who lost for the 11th time in 12 games.
James wrapped up his latest statistical feat on a pass with 29 seconds left to Zydrunas Ilgauskas, who hit a long 3-pointer.
Eric Snow had 16 points and 12 assists in his first start of the season in place of Jeff McInnis, who sat out to rest his sprained left foot in the finale of Cleveland’s six-game West Coast road trip.
But James carried the first-place Cavs past the Warriors with another sparkling performance, keying a 15-3 run in the fourth quarter with eight straight points _ including a vicious dunk on a cross-court pass from Snow with 6:53 left.
