CLEVELAND, Jan. 11 (UPI) -- LeBron James touched off a nine-point run in the second overtime Friday, boosting the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 113-106 win over Charlotte.

James scored 31 points to help the Cavaliers bounce back from a loss to Atlanta Wednesday that ended their four-game winning streak.

Charlotte had won its two previous games, including an improbable road victory over Boston. The Bobcats were trying for their first three-game winning streak of the season.

The Bobcats' Richard Felton hit a three-point shot with 21 seconds left in regulation to force the first extra period and Cleveland's Damon Jones scored the final two points in the initial overtime with a minute to play.

Charlotte scored the first basket of the second overtime, but James then hit a three-pointer that touched off the 9-0 run that put the game away.

Larry Hughes and Anderson Varejao both scored 16 for Cleveland. Charlotte was paced by 27 points from Gerald Wallace.
