CLEVELAND (AP) – LeBron James recorded his 40th career triple-double while Kyrie Irving matched his season high with 32 points and the Cleveland Cavaliers rolled past the Sacramento Kings 120-100 on Monday night.

James scored 21 points to go along with 10 assists and 10 rebounds for his first triple-double of the season. The four-time MVP didn’t play the fourth quarter.

Irving was 13 of 21 from the field and tied his career high with 12 assists. J.R. Smith hit six 3-pointers and finished with 22 points.
