Nov 10 (The Sports Xchange) - Highlights of Monday's National Basketball Association games: - - - Cavaliers 118, Pelicans 111 LeBron James had 32 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists for his first triple-double of the season and the league's newest "Big Three" dominated in the second half of Cleveland's 118-111 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans. James and guard Kyrie Irving combined for 30 of Cleveland's 34 third quarter points, turning a five-point halftime deficit into an 85-79 lead entering the fourth. The Pelicans pulled to within 101-99 but could not get closer as Irving finished with 32 points and nine assists, and Kevin Love had 22 points and five rebounds, marking the first time all three of the Cavs' stars scored 20 points in a game this season. - - - Pacers 97, Jazz 86 The Indiana Pacers' six-game losing streak is over as center Roy Hibbert scored 29 points and reserves A.J. Price and Lavoy Allen made solid contributions from the bench in a 97-86 victory over the Utah Jazz. Price added 22 points and Allen had several key offensive rebounds, finishing with a double-double. Indiana (2-6) had not lost six in a row since March 2011. Utah got 30 points from forward Gordon Hayward but the Jazz (3-5) had no answer for Hibbert, Price and Allen, who finished with 12 points and 15 rebounds. - - - Hawks 91, Knicks 85 Paul Millsap scored a season-high 19 points, leading the Atlanta Hawks to a 91-85 win over the New York Knicks. The Knicks (2-6) dropped their fifth straight game as Atlanta improved to 3-3. Forward Carmelo Anthony led the Knicks with 25 points, including 11 in the fourth quarter, and while they trailed by a point with 2:51 to play, the Hawks used a 6-0 burst to surge 81-74 ahead with 59 seconds remaining. - - - Spurs 89, Clippers 85 Kawhi Leonard scored 26 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, rallying the San Antonio Spurs to an 89-85 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers. Forward Tim Duncan finished with 18 points and 11 rebounds as the Spurs (3-3) won for the first time in three games. Forward Blake Griffin paced the Clippers (4-3), who lost for the second time in three games, with 23 points, 10 rebounds and six assists. - - - Bulls 102, Pistons 91 Buoyed by Derrick Rose's return from spraining both ankles, Chicago (6-2) led from start to finish and held on late in the fourth quarter to stave off an impressive comeback effort by Detroit (2-5) to win 102-91. Detroit cut a 19-point Bulls third-quarter lead to 78-70 starting the fourth and had it down to a two-point deficit with a couple minutes left to play. But a baseline jumper by Bulls forward Pau Gasol (17 points, 15 rebounds) followed by a three-pointer from guard Jimmy Butler (19 points) with 1:56 left ensured Chicago could close it out. Rose led five Bulls players in double-figures scoring with 24 points. (Compiled by Ben Everill; Editing by John O'Brien)
