Adjust font size:

Lamar Odom scored a season-high 28 points, Kobe Bryant added 19 as the Los Angeles Lakers handed the Cleveland Cavaliers its first loss at home this season in 101-91 on Sunday.

The Cavaliers came in 23-0 at Quicken Loans Arena, but were stopped by the Lakers, who ended Boston's 19-game winning streak on Christmas Day and halted a 12-game run by the Celtics earlier this week.

James finished with 16 points on just 5-of-20 shooting for Cleveland, which hadn't lost at home since Game 5 against Washington in the first round of last season's playoffs.

The Lakers went 6-0 on a road trip that also included stops in Minnesota, Memphis, New York, Toronto and Boston.

At Boston, Roger Mason pulled up and leaned into a 3-pointer with 20.4 seconds left, and Tim Duncan scored 23 points with 13 rebounds to lead San Antonio past Boston 105-99.

Kevin Garnett scored 26 points with 12 rebounds, Paul Pierce had 19 and 8 rebounds and Rajon Rondo had 16 assists for the Celtics.

Matt Bonner scored a season-high 23 points and Manu Ginobli had 19 as a reserve for the Spurs, who won for the ninth time in 11 games.

At Portland, Oregon, Brandon Roy scored at the final buzzer to give Portland a 109-108 victory over New York.

Travis Outlaw made a jumper with 31.9 seconds left to pull Portland within one at 108-107, and Al Harrington missed a lay-up on the other end for New York. The Trail Blazers called a timeout with 4.3 seconds left before Roy took an inbound pass from Rudy Fernandez and drove for the winning lay-up.

At Orlando, Florida, Dwight Howard had 30 points and 16 rebounds to lift the Orlando to a 101-84 victory over New Jersey, which played without Vince Carter.

Mickael Pietrus added 17 points, and Hedo Turkoglu scored 15 for the Magic.

Devin Harris had 28 points and 12 assists, and Brook Lopez added 19 points and 12 rebounds for the Nets.

At New Orleans, Sean Marks dunked with 7.8 seconds left to cap a career-high 18-point effort as a short-handed New Orleans overcame the ejection of David West in the 101-97 victory over Timberwolves.

Rasual Butler scored 23 and Devin Brown 14 for New Orleans, which won its second straight while handing Minnesota its third-straight loss.

West was ejected late in the second quarter for a flagrant on Mike Miller.

At Miami, Dwyane Wade shook off flu-like symptoms to score 22 points and regain the NBA scoring lead, and rookie Mario Chalmers scored 16 and added a career-best 13 assists as Miami held off Charlotte 96-92.

At Washington, Caron Butler scored 15 straight points, including a game-winning 18-foot shot at the buzzer as Washington beat Indiana 119-117.

Butler, who missed the previous two games with the flu, scored 17 points in the fourth quarter and 35 overall as Washington overcame a 110-103 deficit with 5:08 left.

Danny Granger led Indiana with 29 points, while T.J. Ford added 23 and Troy Murphy had 18 and 10 rebounds.

At Oklahoma, Kevin Durant scored 39 points as Oklahoma City held off Sacramento 116-113 after blowing a 19-point second-quarter lead.
