Smith made 7-of-11 shots from 3-point range on his way to a 21 point game, Kyrie Irving chipped in 18 points, and Timofey Mozgov added 14 points and 10 rebounds. Cleveland shot 15-of-28 from long range and hit 51.7 of its attempts overall. The Cavs outrebounded Charlotte 56-42 and held a 27-9 fastbreak points advantage.

In Charlottes first trip to Cleveland this season, the Cavaliers jumped out to a 21-0 lead and won 97-88. Fridays first quarter was not much better for the Hornets. On Clevelands first possession, James connected with Kevin Love for a reverse layup alley-oop. Later in the opening period, the Cavaliers went on a 12-0 run to open up a 28-9 lead. Smith and Irving each hit 3-pointers, and Tristan Thompson converted offensive rebounds into a pair of second-chance baskets. James runner as time expired gave Cleveland a 33-13 lead after one. We just didnt have the right intensity or approach to play a team like that, said Hornets coach Steve Clifford. The high-flying Cavs offense did not slow down in the second quarter. They ran their lead to as many as 39 points when Mozgov completed a three-point play with 4:22 to go before the half. Charlotte narrowed the gap a bit at the end of the quarter but still trailed 75-40 going into the break. Charlotte held Cleveland below 30 points in the third quarter, but the Cavs still shot 6-of-9 from long distance to take a 103-63 lead into the fourth period. Back-to-back triples from Smith extended their lead to 40 points for the first time in the game. Cleveland had several chances to extend its lead to 50 points in the final 12 minutes but could never get the last basket it needed. All starters from both teams sat out the entire fourth quarter.

The England international had both goals in TFCs season-opening 2-1 win over the Seattle Sounders on Saturday.MILAN, Italy -- AC Milan lost 1-0 at Udinese in the Italian league on Saturday and failed to boost its confidence for the Champions League clash at Atletico Madrid next week. Antonio Di Natale scored the only goal in the 66th minute, finishing off a great team move by Udinese. "Were disappointed," Milan coach Clarence Seedorf said. "Youre never happy when you lose and certainly more so when certain mistakes could have been avoided. The lads tried tonight and gave what they could but we need to be more clinical in front of goal. "We have to keep in mind our good performances and not forget all that we have done well up until now. Its a football match on Tuesday and we can win it, we are convinced. Everyone saw the first leg and we have to pick up from that performance." Milan remained provisionally 10th after its second successive league defeat. Udinese moved to 13th with its first win in four matches. "Its a fantastic victory against a great club like Milan," Di Natale said. Being International Womens Day, he dedicated the win to his wife "and all the women." Milan enjoyed the best opportunities in the first half and forced teenage goalkeeper Simone Scuffet into several fine saves, notably denying Giampaolo Pazzini from close range with one hand. Cristian Zapata should have given Milan the lead moments earlier but headed a corner wide after being left unmarked at the far post. Harrison Barnes Jersey. Scuffet also made a superb diving save shortly after halftime to parry Robinhos header from point-blank range. Milan goalkeeper Christian Abbiati -- who made his league debut when Scuffet was only two years old -- pulled off a brilliant save to deny Roberto Pereyra early on. Udinese improved after the break and took the lead when Pereyra released Bruno Fernandes, who crossed for an unmarked Di Natale to slot home. Substitute Mario Balotelli blasted over the bar shortly afterwards for Milan, while Allan curled an effort narrowly past the top corner for Udinese. Also, relegation-threatened Catania drew 1-1 at home to 10-man Cagliari. Matias Vecino broke the deadlock in the 53rd minute but Catania levelled nine minutes later when Gonzalo Bergessio nodded in Francesco Lodis curling free kick at the far post. Cagliari had to play out the final 17 minutes a man down after Danilo Avelar was sent off following a second booking. Catania almost made the most of the numerical advantage but hit the woodwork twice in quick succession as first Cristiano Biraghis effort crashed off the post before Alexis Rolin headed off the bar. Catania remained second to last. Discount NFL Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic ' ' '
