CLEVELAND - Gary Harris scored 32 points, Will Barton added 23 and the Denver Nuggets did most of their damage behind the 3-point arc in a 126-117 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday night.
The Nuggets made 19 of 35 3-pointers, including three in the final 2:26, to hold off a second-half charge from the Cavs, who are struggling as they try to blend in four new players on the fly.
James finished with 25 points, 15 assists and 10 rebounds, his 13th triple-double this season, but Cleveland's lack of another dependable scorer and defense continues to be a major problem.
J.R. Smith scored 19 points, all in the second half.
