[March 11, 2009]  LOS ANGELES (AP) -- LeBron James recorded his second straight triple-double with 32 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists, Mo Williams hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with 6.6 seconds to play, and the Cleveland Cavaliers rallied from a 19-point, fourth-quarter deficit to beat the Los Angeles Clippers 87-83 on Tuesday night.

DonutsJames, last season's NBA scoring champ, recorded his 22nd career triple-double, scoring his final 10 points in the frenetic fourth quarter and recording his 800th career steal. The Cavaliers' 11th victory in 13 games increased their lead over Boston in the Eastern Conference to 1 1/2 games.

The Cavs, who came in holding opponents to a league-best 90.5 points per game, are now 27-2 when their opponent scores fewer than 90.
