CLEVELAND (AP) – LeBron James sparked a fourth-quarter comeback with 11 points, Channing Frye scored a season-high 20 and the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Charlotte Hornets 100-93 on Sunday.

James, who finished with 19 points, also had five assists in the final period. He had eight points on 4-of-15 shooting through three quarters.

Kyrie Irving scored 19 points and Kevin Love added 17, but neither played in the fourth quarter as Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue stuck with the group that helped Cleveland take control of the game.
