Cavs roll Heat in rematch By The Associated Press

CLEVELAND — As he left the arena, Cavaliers coach Byron Scott smiled and accepted fist bumps and congratulaNBA tions from security guards lining the hallway. “Coach,” one of them said, “we’re going to talk about this one all summer.” And probably for many more. Cleveland got the win it wanted most. Take that, LeBron. Despite blowing a 23-point lead, the Cavs battled back to beat the Miami Heat 102-90 on Tuesday night, getting a small dose of satisfaction against James, the franchise’s biggest star who was making his second homecoming visit to Cleveland since bolting last summer. J.J. Hickson scored 21, Anthony Parker scored 20 and unsung center Ryan Hollins threw around his weight for the Cavs, who were embarrassed by the Heat 118-90 on Dec. 2 — a night when Cleveland fans unleashed pent-up hatred on James, the native son who scorned them. This time, it was James who left the floor beaten. He finished with 27 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds and had to endure another night of constant booing from fans who once cherished his every move but now view him as a bitter enemy for betraying them. James took the loss in stride, giving the Cavs credit they deserved. “Anytime we play anybody, we know we’re going to get the best out of them,” James said. “They came out and played extremely well. It was a good win for them.” Rockets 112, Nets 87: Kyle Lowry had 16 points, 10 assists and seven rebounds and Houston moved within two games of the final playoff berth in the Western Conference with a victory over New Jersey. Kevin Martin added 20 points as the Rockets posted their sixth win in seven games and inched closer to idle eighth-place Memphis with eight games left in the regular season. Brook Lopez had 22 points for the Nets, who lost their third in a row and seventh in eight games. Deron Williams missed his sixth straight game for New Jersey (2350), which has lost 50 games for the second straight season.

Thunder 115, Warriors 114, OT: Kevin Durant scored 39 points, Russell Westbrook hit the winning free throw with 11.4 seconds left in overtime and Oklahoma City finished its longest homestand of the season with a victory against Golden State. Durant scored eight of Oklahoma City’s nine points in overtime, but served as a decoy to create room along the right side of the lane as Westbrook drove to the basket and got fouled. Westbrook missed his first free throw, but made the second to put the Thunder on top. Stephen Curry led Golden State with 35 points. Kings 116, Suns 113: Marcus Thornton scored 24 points and had 11 rebounds for Sacramento, which won its season-high fourth straight by defeating Phoenix. Despite the strong possibility of the team moving to Anaheim next season, the Kings are enjoying their best stretch of the season, winning five of six games.
