Injury-riddled Cavs, Warriors win the day

Los Angeles: LeBron James’ 70th career triple-double propelled the short-handed Cleveland Cavaliers to a 114-109 NBA victory over the Chicago Bulls on Saturday when the injury plagued Golden State Warriors also pulled off a win. Four-time NBA Most Valuable Player James was once again the difference maker for the Cavs, who travelled to Chicago without Kevin Love, Rodney hood, Kyle Korver, Larry Nance Jr., Cedi Osman and Tristan Thompson. Cook led the Warriors with a career-high 28 points. Looney posted career-highs of 13 points and six blocked shots, and Draymond Green came within two assists of a triple-double with 25 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists as the Warriors bounced back from a loss to conquer Phoenix Suns 124-109.
