Associated Press
The NBA Roundup …
CLEVELANDó LeBron James matched a season high with 41 points, finally putting Milwaukee away with a steal and soaring dunk in the final minutes, and Mo Williams scored 16 against his former team as the Cleveland Cavaliers won their fifth straight, 99-93 over the Bucks on Tuesday.
James scored 12 in the fourth quarter and didn’t come out in the second half while playing a season-best 43 minutes.
Lakers 106, Mavericks 99
DALLAS ó Trevor Ariza turned an offensive rebound into an emphatic, go-ahead dunk early in the fourth quarter and Kobe Bryant quickly stretched the lead, sending the Los Angeles Lakers to a victory over the Mavericks.
Ariza’s basket put Los Angeles up for the first time since the opening minutes, then Bryant began stretching the lead with a one-handed rebound-dunk on the next possession. Soon after, he scored seven straight points and the Lakers held off the Mavericks down the stretch to improve to 6-0 for the first time since 2001-02, their last championship season.
Dallas’ Jason Kidd got the 101st triple-double of his career with 16 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists.
Hawks 113, Bulls 108
CHICAGO ó Al Horford scored a career-high 27 points and grabbed 17 rebounds as the Hawks remained unbeaten through six games with a victory over the Bulls.
Atlanta’s start is its best since the 1997-98 Hawks won their first 11 games.
With leading scorer Joe Johnson suffering through a poor shooting night, the Hawks held off the short-handed Bulls.
Mike Bibby added 22 points, hitting three 3-pointers in the fourth quarter to fend off a Bulls rally. The Hawks had six players in double figures, including Johnson, who finished with 17 ó eight below his average. He shot 4-for-16.
Rookie Derrick Rose led the Bulls with 26 points and had a career-best 10 rebounds.
Jazz 93, 76ers 80
PHILADELPHIA ó Carlos Boozer had 19 points and 16 rebounds and Deron Williams played for the first time this season to lead the Jazz past the 76ers.
Andre Miller scored 25 points, Andre Iguodala had 15 points and 10 rebounds and Elton Brand added 13 for the reeling Sixers, who lost their third in a row and fell to 2-5.
