Then, with the Cavs clinging to their two-point lead and the 24-shot clock about to expire, James hit his fifth 3-pointer. James went 12 of 18 from the floor.

Flat and seemingly disinterested in the first half, the Cavs found themselves trailing at halftime.

With their reserves— led by Hield's 12 points — scoring 29, the Kings had a 57-48 lead at the break and were outworking the Cavs, who opened the third quarter with two quick turnovers and a technical in the first 40 seconds while falling behind by 14.

While Cleveland's win streak is impressive, James said he won't consider anything special until the Cavs nearly double it.

"Twenty-five," he said when asked where the streak needs to get to before becoming significant. "Because you're getting close to 33 (Lakers 1971-72), that's the all-time record. We ain't nowhere near close. We got close in Miami. We got to 27 and lost to Chicago."
