Cavaliers beat Raptors

The Cleveland Cavaliers continued their impressive run of form by topping Eastern Conference leaders the Toronto Raptors 112-106.

Cleveland have won nine of their last 10 games following Tuesday's victory in the NBA.

Cavs star LeBron James led the way with 27 points, 10 rebounds and six assists for Cleveland, who are third in the east with a 48-30 record.

Kevin Love added 18 points and 15 rebounds in a double-double display, while Rodney Hood put up 17 points.

Point guard Jose Calderon has been playing a lot more minutes in recent weeks and scored 19 against the Raptors.

Kevin Durant scored 34 points against former team the Oklahoma City Thunder as defending NBA champions the Golden State Warriors won 111-107.

Reigning MVP Russell Westbrook had 44 points and 16 rebounds for the Thunder.


J.J. Redick scored 19 points and Ben Simmons added 15 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Philadelphia Sixers to their 11th straight win – a 121-95 victory against the Brooklyn Nets.

Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic came up big in a 107-104 win over the Indiana Pacers, with 30 points, seven assists and six rebounds.


John Wall had almost as many turnovers (eight) as points (nine) and a terrible minus-18 rating in an ugly 120-104 loss to the Houston Rockets. The Washington Wizards guard, who returned to action on Saturday after being sidelined since January 25, hit three of 10 from the floor.
