AUBURN HILLS, Mich. - LeBron James came leaping in to try to stop Jodie Meeks as the Detroit guard drove to the basket during the final seconds of the third quarter.After colliding with Meeks, James put his hands out to break his fall before sliding across the floor on his stomach.I was scared, because I broke my wrist on a fall like that in high school, James said. I was either going to land on my face or break the fall with my hands, but when I hit, both my arms went numb. Im OK now — it was just something like a stinger — but I wasnt sure at first.James barely missed any game time after that anxious moment, and he finished with 32 points to help the Cleveland Cavaliers to their seventh straight victory Tuesday night, 103-95 over the Pistons. Kyrie Irving matched his season high with 38 points.The Cavs never trailed in the second half, but when James hit the deck and didnt immediately get up, that was plenty to be concerned about.That is obviously a time of worry, which is the understatement of the year, Cleveland coach David Blatt said. In a situation like that, you are just hoping he is OK.James quickly came back in the game, and his two-handed breakaway dunk early in the fourth put Cleveland up 80-68.Greg Monroe had 17 points and 12 rebounds for the Pistons, who pulled within eight and had the ball late in the fourth quarter, but Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was unable to connect from 3-point range. James drew a foul at the other end and made both free throws to make it 88-78 with 2:56 to play.Caldwell-Pope was fouled by James while shooting a 3-pointer with 2:00 remaining, and that trio of free throws made it 90-83. The Pistons got the ball back, but Andre Drummond missed a layup, and Irving connected from beyond the arc.The Cavs avenged a 23-point home loss to Detroit late last month. That game was part of a seven-game winning streak for the Pistons, but now Detroit is struggling to overcome the loss of Brandon Jennings, who ruptured his left Achilles tendon last weekend and will miss the rest of the season.IRVINGS BIG NIGHTDetroit led 19-17 after a first quarter in which the teams combined to shoot 1 for 16 from outside the paint. Cleveland shrugged off that rough start and reached 100 points for the eighth straight game.Irving was 6 of 10 from 3-point range. The rest of the Cavs went 3 of 24.Thats the luxury of playing with a great player like LeBron. When hes on the floor, you know there are going to be things opened up for the rest of you, Irving said. Tonight, we had a lot of open shots, and we got enough of them to go down.UNDERMANNEDD.J. Augustin, Detroits starting point guard now in Jennings absence, had 19 points and nine assists, but the Pistons have lost three in a row. That skid began with the game at Milwaukee when Jennings got hurt, but coach Stan Van Gundy says the team needs to move forward without him.Weve got good enough players to win, Van Gundy said. We had good enough players in there tonight to win. We just needed to do a couple of things better, and were not going to come in here after every loss now and talk about Brandons effect on it — at least Im not.Cleveland outscored Detroit 50-48 in the paint. Drummond had 12 points and 17 rebounds but shot just 6 of 17.TIP-INSCavaliers: Cleveland had won its last four games by double digits before Tuesday. ...

Cheap Oakland Raiders Jerseys . -- Kenneth Faried made a turnaround hook shot over Draymond Green with a half-second remaining, and the Denver Nuggets made Golden State wait at least one more game to secure a playoff berth with a stunning 100-99 win over the Warriors on Thursday night.CHICAGO -- Brewers manager Ron Roenicke finally saw what made Johnny Hellweg successful in the minors. Hellweg (1-3) pitched six innings for his first career major league victory and Logan Schafer hit a three-run triple to help the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Chicago Cubs 5-3 on Saturday. He allowed three runs on four hits. He struck out one and pitched around three walks to earn his first victory after flourishing in the minors. "That was good to see," Roenicke said. "He came out of the first inning still a little different. But as innings went on stuff got better, location got better, I thought he pitched more with his changeup and his breaking ball. Hopefully this is the guy were going to see." Brewers relievers Rob Wooten and Brandon Kintzler each pitched a scoreless inning then Jim Henderson pitched a perfect ninth for his 23rd save in 27 opportunities. Hellweg was the Pacific Coast Leagues pitcher of the year after going 12-5 with a 3.15 ERA in 23 starts at Triple-A Nashville. The 24 year-old made his major league debut on June 28 in Pittsburgh. The 6-foot-9 right-hander was knocked out after giving up seven runs -- five earned -- and six hits while walking two in 1 2-3 innings of a 10-3 loss. He was also roughed up in a relief appearance and another two starts before being sent back to the minors. "It feels awesome," Hellweg said. "It feels good to contribute to the team up here. I am going to embrace it a little bit. I am not going to put it behind me yet, it feels good to go out there and put up six innings and give a chance for our team to win." The Cubs got solo shots from Luis Valbuena and Brian Bogusevic who fell to 16 games under .500 at Wrigley Field. With the loss, the Cubs dropped behind the Brewers for last place in the NL Central. Cubs starter Jake Arrieta (2-2) pitched five innings and allowed four runs on three hits. He also gave up three walks and hit one batter. The 27 year-old right-hander was done in by a four-run fourth inning. Arrieta, who is trying to compete for a spot on the 2014 roster, gave up all three hits in the fourth. After Starlin Castro committed his 18th error at shortstop in the ninth, Milwaukee got an insurance run on Jonathan Lucroys RBI triple. Trailing 2-0 in the ffourth, Scooter Gennett drove in a run on a single and Schafer cleared the bases with a triple to right-centre to put Milwaukee ahead 4-2.dddddddddddd "First and foremost, I got a little too fine with those couple of walks and I got myself into a situation when Schafer came up," said Arrieta. "(I) just left a sinker right in the middle of the plate and he didnt try and do too much there, he just shot the ball in the gap in the right spot to clear the bases. Schafer came into the game 3-for-23 against the Cubs this season. "Well, Schafer is off and on. He comes through with some big hits, I dont want to say much hes been struggling for us, but he has been getting some big hits for us," said Roenicke. Cubs manager Dale Sveum said Arrieta needs to work on putting away opposing batters when he gets ahead of the count. "Its obviously something were trying to get a grip on, its been a problem, couple good pitches and get two strikes on guys and not being able to make a pitch to put somebody out," said Sveum. Valbuena hit a two-run homer into the right-field basket in the second inning. It was his 10th of the season and first home run since July 20th. Bogusevic added a solo homer off Hellweg in the sixth to cut the Brewers lead to 4-3. It was his fourth of the season. NOTES: Cubs manager Dale Sveum said 2B Darwin Barney deserves to repeat as a Gold Glove winner. Barney had four errors and a .993 fielding percentage entering Saturday. "He hasnt done anything for anybody to take it away from him," Sveum said. "Hes had a heck of a year defensively again." ... RHP Scott Baker (Tommy John surgery) will not be limited in his first outing since Sept. 24, 2011 on Sunday against the Brewers, but he likely wont throw more than 100 pitches, Sveum said. ... Brewers CF Carlos Gomez was out of the starting lineup, but came in as a pinch-hitter in the eighth and stayed in the game. Gomez has been slowed with a sore knee. ... Despite both teams competing to stay out of the cellar in the NL Central, the announced crowd was 34, 929. ... Cubs RHP Chang-Yong Lim made his major league debut in a relief appearance in the seventh. He became the 32nd player to make his Cubs debut this season, a franchise record.
