The NBA roundup …
CLEVELAND ó LeBron James, sniffling and wheezing through a head cold, shook off one of his worst games this season to flirt with a triple-double and help the Cleveland Cavaliers extend their home winning streak to 20 by beating the New Orleans Hornets 92-78 Friday night.
James finished with 29 points, 14 rebounds and seven assists one night after he went 8-of-28 and had eight turnovers in an overtime loss at Chicago.
76ers 109, Spurs 87
PHILADELPHIA ó Thaddeus Young scored a career-high 27 points, Andre Iguodala added 21 and the 76ers (19-20) won their sixth straight game.
The Sixers put on quite a show at the buzzers. Iguodala hit a 28-footer to end the first quarter, a 44-footer to end the first half and Lou Williams buried a 28-footer to end the third.
T’wolves 105, Suns 103
PHOENIX ó Al Jefferson had 22 points and 12 rebounds, and the Timberwolves rallied from an 11-point third-quarter deficit to win for the sixth time in seven games.
Sebastian Telfair gave the Suns a chance when he missed a 3-pointer with 6.9 seconds left, but Jason Richardson missed a potential winning 3 from the corner at the buzzer.
Wizards 96, Knicks 89
WASHINGTON ó Antawn Jamison scored 28 points and the Wizards used a 15-0 run late in the game to snap a six-game slide.
The Knicks were led by Al Harrington’s 18 points. David Lee had 15 points while matching a career high with 21 rebounds.
Pacers 111, Raptors 104
INDIANAPOLIS ó Danny Granger scored 23 points and Mike Dunleavy made all three free throws with less than a minute left to preserve the victory.
Dunleavy, making only his second start of the season, added 22 for the Pacers.
Thunder 89, Pistons 79
OKLAHOMA CITY ó Kevin Durant scored 32 points and the Thunder used a 13-point run to start the fourth quarter and win consecutive games for the first time since moving from Seattle.
Jazz 101, Grizzlies 91
MEMPHIS, Tenn. ó Deron Williams scored 27 points and Ronnie Brewer added 21 to help the Jazz win their seventh straight against the Grizzlies.
The victory snapped a five-game road skid for Utah, which was outscored 64-45 in the second half of a 114-93 loss at Oklahoma City on Tuesday.
