Cavaliers beat Warriors for fifth straight win

LeBron James had 31 points and 12 assists, and J.J. Hickson continued his solid play with another career-high 21 points and the Cleveland Cavaliers held the short-handed Golden State Warriors, winning 114-108.

The Cavaliers were short handed, playing without Shaquille O’Neal and Anderson Varejao. Jamario Moon left in the third quarter with a sprained left ankle and will be out for tomorrow’s game at Washington. Also, coach Mike Brown doesn’t expect Shaq who missed his second straight with a strained shoulder or Varejao (hip contusion) to play against the Wizards.

Golden State dressed the league minimum eight players, including Raja Bell, who didn’t play because of a wrist injury that will require surgery next week.

Delonte West was activated and played 14 minutes off the bench, West finished 1-for-4 from the floor for two points to go with two assists and a blocked shot.

Before the game, the topic of football was brought up to LeBron, Lebron thinks he might be able to help the Browns:

“I’m not trying to speak high of myself, but if I put in the time and commitment and dedicate myself to the game of football, I could be good – no matter what team I was on,”
