SACRAMENTO, Nov. 10 (UPI) -- LeBron James' three-point play with 54 seconds left turned out to be the game winner Friday night, as the Cleveland Cavaliers beat Sacramento, 93-91.

James gave the Cavaliers a five-point lead by making a lay-up and then a free throw after being fouled in the act of shooting by Mikki Moore.

John Salmons, however, made a three-point play of his own with 40 seconds to play to make it a two-point game.

Damon Jones missed a lay-up attempt for Cleveland with 25 seconds left and Sacramento worked the ball for a final shot, which Kevin Martin took from three-point range. The attempt at the win missed, however, and the Kings remained stuck on just one victory this year.

James scored 26 points -- eight in the final three minutes. Devin Brown added 20 for Cleveland, which played the fourth game of a season-long, six-game road trip.

Martin led the Kings with 32 points.
