Cavaliers clip Hawks again, 95-84

The Cleveland Cavaliers held Atlanta scoreless for almost nine minutes to open the fourth quarter to break open a close game and beat the Hawks 95-84 in the NBA on Tuesday.
Mo Williams had 20 points to lead the Cavaliers, who won in their return to Philips Arena since a dominant four-game sweep of the Hawks in the second round of last season's playoffs.
Delonte West had 17 points and Zydrunas Ilgauskas added 15 off Cleveland's bench. LeBron James had 14 points, 10 assists and five steals but made only 6 of 20 shots from the field.
Knicks 104, Pistons 87
At Auburn Hills, Michigan, David Lee had a season-high 30 points and 12 rebounds as New York handed Detroit an eighth straight loss.
Wilson Chandler added 23 points and nine rebounds for the Knicks. Richard Hamilton had 16 points and Rodney Stuckey scored 15 for Detroit despite combining to shoot just 11 of 34.
Thunder 110, Wizards 98
At Washington, Kevin Durant had 35 points and 11 rebounds, Jeff Green added 18 points and Oklahoma City beat Washington for the team's first four-game winning streak in 3 1/2 years.
It was the fifth straight game that Durant topped the 30-point mark. He has exceeded 30 points nine times in Oklahoma City's 14 December games.
The Thunder, who last won four straight in April 2006 when they were the Seattle SuperSonics, earned their ninth road victory of the season _ one more than they had during 2008-09, their first season in Oklahoma City.
