The 6-foot-10 Webber has bounced back from a major knee injury to average 21.8 points on 46 percent shooting, after finishing with 18.7 points and a career-low 41.3 percent shooting in just 23 games last season.
The Kings have won five straight, with Webber averaging 28.5 points, 13 rebounds and 5.5 assists during that stretch.
Webber scored eight of his 32 points in overtime and had 13 rebounds, six assists and four steals in the Kings’ 113-107 overtime win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday.
The Kings did it with little help from Peja Stojakovic, their second-leading scorer. His streak of consecutive games in double figures ended at 133 after he was held to six points on 3-for-10 shooting. The run was the second-longest active streak in the NBA behind Minnesota’s Kevin Garnett (200).
After missing his first five shots, Cuttino Mobley had 20 points, six assists and four rebounds for Sacramento. Acquired last week in a trade with Orlando that sent Doug Christie to the Magic, Mobley is averaging 17.3 points, 4.3 assists and 3.6 rebounds through his first three games.
Cleveland hopes James can help end the team’s losing streaks of seven straight games against the Kings and five in a row at Arco Arena. James is tied for fifth in the NBA in scoring, averaging 24.9 points to go with his team-high 7.3 assists.
After several near misses earlier this season, James became the youngest player in NBA history to record a triple-double on Wednesday after having 27 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists to lead the Cavaliers over the Trail Blazers 107-101 on Wednesday.
“It feels great. But it’s not about the statistics, it’s the wins,” said James, who also had four steals.
Cleveland is 2-2 after four games of its six-game West coast road trip. The Cavaliers finish the trip against Golden State on Saturday.
