NEW YORK, March 5 (UPI) -- The second 50-point game of the season for LeBron James Wednesday boosted Cleveland to a 119-105 victory over New York.

James also had 10 assists and eight rebounds while connecting on 16 of 30 shots from the field. Cleveland won its third straight and its sixth out of eight.

Damon Jones added 15 points off the bench and Devin Brown had 14.

It was the fourth straight loss for the Knicks, who were led by Jamal Crawford with 25 points and Nate Robinson with 24.

New York owned a two-point lead early in the fourth period before the Cavaliers went on a 9-1 run that James started and finished with three-pointers.

The Knicks closed to within a point only to have James make back-to-back three-point shots to end the New York threat.
