It was a hot night for Mo Williams last night at the Q as the Cavaliers continued their winning streak at the Q to 21-0, to remain unbeaten at home.

Williams had 43 points, smashing his career high of 38 set two seasons ago with the Milwaukee Bucks. He hit seven 3-pointers, breaking his week-old career high of six in Portland. He had 11 assists, setting a new season high. He had eight rebounds, setting another season high.

Mo Williams beat Larry Hughes 40 points and became the only Cavaliers with 40+ points during the James’ era.

However, the Cavaliers found their defense against one of the league’s worst teams unacceptable.

“The last few games, we got the wins, I’m not saying let’s give these wins back,” Brown said. “But you start to see a trend like that, you have to make sure you address it, that’s part of my job. I know as a group we can do better on that end of the floor.”

Over the last five games, the Cavs have given up 47 percent shooting and 103 points per game.

“You can never been disappointed [with a win] but I’m not satisfied,” James said. “We took one step backwards tonight defensively and we don’t want to do that.”

James had 23 points on just 10 shots with a season-high 15 rebounds, 11 assists and three blocks.That’s Lebron 20th career triple-double.
