LeBron gets stitches, scores 23 in fourth as Cavs beat Nets

CLEVELAND (AP) LeBron James shook off a blow to the face and scored 23 points in the fourth quarter - including 18 straight for Cleveland - as the Cavaliers won their sixth straight, 119-109 over the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday night.

James needed stitches in the third quarter to close a gash above his lip that drew blood. He punched back at the Nets in the fourth and finished with 33 points.

With the Cavs up 100-99, James began his one-man show with a pair of free throws. He dropped in a couple left-handed shots and then drained two 3-pointers - the last a step-back with 55 seconds left to give Cleveland a 118-107 lead.
