(AP) — LeBron James recorded his 40th career triple-double while Kyrie Irving matched his season high with 32 points and the Cleveland Cavaliers rolled past the Sacramento Kings 120-100 on Monday night.

James scored 21 points to go along with 10 assists and 10 rebounds for his first triple-double of the season. The four-time MVP didn't play the fourth quarter.

Irving was 13 of 21 from the field and tied his career high with 12 assists. J.R. Smith hit six 3-pointers and finished with 22 points.

Cleveland went ahead early in the game and steadily built its lead against the listless Kings, who have dropped eight of nine.

Rudy Gay and Omri Casspi led Sacramento with 16 points each.

 

(AP) — Golden State Warriors center Festus Ezeli has undergone arthroscopic surgery on his left knee to remove debris and is scheduled to be re-evaluated in six weeks.

The defending NBA champions said Ezeli's operation was performed by Dr. Arthur Ting at the Fremont Surgery Center on Monday morning. The team said it expects him to return this season.

Ezeli, averaging 7.5 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.23 blocks in 40 games with 11 starts, last played Jan. 25 against San Antonio before missing the last five games with soreness in the knee.

The Warriors host Houston on Tuesday night.

 

(AP) — A person familiar with the negotiations says AL MVP Josh Donaldson and the Toronto Blue Jays are nearing agreement on a $28.65 million, two-year contract.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press on Tuesday because the agreement had not been completed. The progress toward a deal was first reported by Sportsnet in Canada.

Donaldson and the Blue Jays had been scheduled for a salary arbitration hearing. The 30-year-old third baseman had asked for a raise from $4.3 million to $11.8 million and Toronto had offered $11.35 million when the sides exchanged proposed arbitration salaries last month.

Acquired from Oakland in November 2014, Donaldson made the AL All-Star team for the second straight season in 2015. He led the majors with 122 runs, topped the AL with 123 RBIs, and hit .297 with 41 home runs to help the Blue Jays reach the playoffs for the first time since winning consecutive World Series in 1992 and '93.

 

(AP)- Coach Rick Pitino says he is still waiting to be interviewed by the NCAA about allegations by an escort that a former Cardinals staffer hired her and other dancers for sex parties at the team's dormitory.

University President James Ramsey Friday announced a self-imposed one-year postseason ban for the men's basketball team after the school's investigation into allegations revealed violations did occur. Pitino has said he did not know about the incidents and that athletic director Tom Jurich does not believe he was aware of the activities.

Pitino said Tuesday on ESPN's "Mike & Mike" if Jurich "thought for one second I had 1 percent of hearsay in this case, I would have been gone a long time ago."

The university investigation is ongoing and it's unclear if more self-imposed penalties are possible.

President Barack Obama honored and roasted the Golden State Warriors at the same time during an official White House visit for the World Champions on Thursday.

Obama jokingly poked fun at the 45-4 Warriors for not being the best single season team yet, instead praising Steve Kerr for  being part of the 1996 Chicago Bulls who won 72 games, a number the Dubs are chasing during this campaign.

Obama also poked Steph Curry for being a great shooter but not having the "prettiest" jump shot on the team, instead laying that honor on fellow Splash Brother Klay Thompson.

It was a joyous day for Warriors fans who waited 40 years to see their team capture a title.

(AP) — Stephen Curry scored 36 of his 51 points in the first half to offset a monster offensive game from John Wall and the Golden State Warriors pulled away to beat the Washington Wizards 134-121 Wednesday night for their eighth straight victory.

Curry made 13 of his first 14 shots and finished 19 of 28 from the field and 11 of 26 from 3-point territory. His 11 3s tied a career high.

The defending-champion Warriors (45-4) continued on their run by tying the 1966-67 Philadelphia 76ers for the best 49-game start in NBA history.

Along with Curry's 51, Klay Thompson scored 24 points and Draymond Green had 12 points and 10 rebounds.

Wall led the Wizards (21-26) with 10 assists and his season-best 41 points.

 

(AP) — E'Twaun Moore scored a career-high 24 points while starting in place of injured Jimmy Butler, and the Chicago Bulls overcame a sloppy finish to beat the Sacramento Kings 107-102 on Wednesday night.

Pau Gasol added 16 points, 13 rebounds and made two free throws with 4.3 seconds remaining to help the Bulls to their first win in Sacramento in more than four years. Derrick Rose had 21 points and nine assists while Taj Gibson scored 12.

The Bulls led 101-92 with 2:40 left but struggled to close out the Kings. Chicago committed two turnovers and made only one basket down the stretch before pulling out the win at the free-throw line.

DeMarcus Cousins had 30 points and 11 rebounds in his return to Sacramento's lineup.
