LeBron James had 25 points and 11 assists, Dion Waiters scored 13 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter, and the host Cleveland Cavaliers handled one of the Western Conference's best teams, beating the Memphis Grizzlies, 105-91, on Sunday.
James scored 16 in the second half, and the Cavs shot a season-best 61 percent from the field to improve to just 3-6 against West teams. Anderson Varejao scored 18, and Kyrie Irving had 17 points and 12 assists for the Cavs, who are 11-3 since their sluggish 5-7 start.
Cleveland, which has won eight of nine at home, is 9-2 when James has at least nine assists.
Marc Gasol scored 23 and added 11 rebounds for the Grizzlies, who played without forward Zach Randolph. He's nursing a sore and swollen right knee he injured in Friday's loss at Chicago.
Pelicans 101, Thunder 99 - Anthony Davis scored 38 points to lead New Orleans to a road victory over Oklahoma City.
It was the third-highest point total of Davis' career. He made 16 of 22 shots and had 12 rebounds.
Russell Westbrook scored 29 points for the Thunder, but he missed a three-pointer that could have given Oklahoma City the lead in the closing seconds. Reggie Jackson added 19 points.
Oklahoma City forward Kevin Durant missed his second straight game because of a sprained right ankle.
