OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - 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 3½ minutes as the Cavs put the game away.
Kevin Durant led Oklahoma City with 29 points and Jeff Green scored a season-high 26.
