|LeBron Paces Cavs Past Bulls
|CLEVELAND (AP) -- LeBron James had 23 points and 11 assists and busted out every one of his dance moves as the Cleveland Cavaliers won for the 11th time in 13 games, beating the slumping Chicago Bulls 101-87 on Friday night.
Mo Williams and Daniel Gibson added 15 points apiece for the Cavaliers, who avenged a one-point loss to the Bulls on Nov. 5. Cleveland dropped to 3-3 after that 86-85 defeat, but are now 14-5 and beginning to shape into the NBA title contender everyone expected.
Rookie Taj Gibson scored 14 with 13 rebounds and Derrick Rose scored 13 for Chicago, which has dropped six of seven. The Bulls have lost seven straight road games since their win over Cleveland last month.
Cleveland did not commit a turnover in the second half after having 11 at halftime.
