NBA Roundup: Kobe beats LeBron

Associated Press
The NBA roundup …
CLEVELANDó No second All-Star. No triple-double for LeBron James. And now, no more home winning streak.
It’s been a rough few days for the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Lamar Odom scored a season-high 28 points, Kobe Bryant added 19 and the streak-breaking Los Angeles Lakers handed Cleveland its first loss at home this season, 101-91 on Sunday.
The Cavaliers came in 23-0 at Quicken Loans Arena, but were stopped by the Lakers, who ended Boston’s 19-game winning streak on Christmas Day and halted a 12-game run by the Celtics earlier this week.
James finished with 16 points on just 5-of-20 shooting for Cleveland, which hadn’t lost at home since Game 5 against Washington in the first round of last season’s playoffs.
Spurs 105, Celtics 99
BOSTON ó Roger Mason pulled up and leaned into a 3-pointer with 20.4 seconds left, and Tim Duncan scored 23 points with 13 rebounds to lead the San Antonio Spurs to a 105-99 victory.
It was the second loss in three games for the defending champions, who lost to the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday in an NBA finals rematch to snap a 12-game win streak.
Kevin Garnett scored 26 points for Boston.
Heat 96, Bobcats 92
MIAMI ó Dwyane Wade shook off flu-like symptoms to score 22 points and regain the NBA scoring lead, rookie Mario Chalmers scored 16 and added a career-best 13 assists, and the Miami Heat held off Charlotte 96-92.
Wizards 119, Pacers 117
WASHINGTON ó Caron Butler scored 15 straight points, including a game-winning 18-footer at the buzzer and Washington beat Indiana.
Magic 101, Nets 84
ORLANDO, Fla. ó Dwight Howard had 30 points and 16 rebounds to lift the Orlando to a victory against New Jersey, which played without Vince Carter.
Blazers 109, Knicks 108
PORTLAND, Ore. ó Brandon Roy’s finger-roll at the buzzer gave Portland a victory.
