Love scores 29, leads Cavaliers past Thunder 115-92

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Kevin Love scored 29 points to help the streaking Cleveland Cavaliers roll past the Oklahoma City Thunder 115-92 on Sunday.

Love shot 9 of 18 from the field and 11 for 12 at the free throw line to match his second-best scoring performance of the season.

LeBron James had 25 points, 11 assists and seven rebounds, and Tristan Thompson had 14 points and 14 rebounds for Cleveland, which won its fifth straight.

The Cavaliers romped even though point guard Kyrie Irving sat out after the first quarter because of flu-like symptoms.

Kevin Durant scored 26 points and Russell Westbrook had 20 points, 11 assists and nine rebounds for Oklahoma City, which lost its second straight at home coming out of the All-Star break. It was the Thunder’s most lopsided defeat of the season.
