Associated Press
NBA roundup …
OKLAHOMA CITY ó LeBron James scored a season-high 44 points and Mo Williams hit a backbreaking halfcourt shot in the fourth quarter to help the Cleveland Cavaliers close out a 102-89 win against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday night.
Williams tracked down the ball after Thabo Sefolosha had tipped it into the backcourt, then turned and fired a 48-footer with coach Mike Brown yelling to him as the shot clock ran down. The shot earned him a look of disbelief and a congratulatory hand slap from James, and it gave Cleveland its largest lead to that point at 94-87.
The stunned Thunder didn’t score again for 31/2 minutes as the Cavs put the game away.
Raptors 101, Rockets 88TORONTO ó Chris Bosh scored 27 points and Hedo Turkoglu had a season-high 23 as the Toronto Raptors beat the Rockets.
Jarrett Jack added 17 points, eight rebounds and eight assists for the Raptors, who snapped a two-game losing streak.
Grizzlies 118, Heat 90MIAMI ó Rudy Gay scored a career-high 41 points, Marc Gasol made all seven of his shots on the way to a 16-point, 15-rebound effort, and Memphis enjoyed a rare road blowout.
Gay made 15 of 28 shots, topping his previous career best by five points, and became just the fourth player since January 2007 to score at least 40 against Miami in a regular-season game.
Jamal Crawford (40) did so on Dec. 1, 2008, while LeBron James (42) and Ben Gordon (43) each accomplished the feat last March.
Dwyane Wade scored 25 points for Miami.
Hawks 130, Nets 107
ATLANTA ó Maurice Evans scored 22 points, and Joe Johnson added 21 points and 10 assists to help Atlanta win its fourth straight.
Devin Harris, who started despite a sprained left pinky finger, scored 23 points for the Nets, who allowed a season high in points in their third consecutive loss .
That dropped the NBA’s worst record to 2-22.
