Cleveland's superstar made two crucial three-point plays down the stretch and finished with 25 points and 12 rebounds as the Cavs won their 13th straight game, 79-73 on Tuesday night over the Detroit Pistons, who gave the NBA's best home team all it could handle.
The Cavs trailed 69-67 midway through the fourth when James took over, scoring eight points and handing out an assist in a 10-0 run.
With the win, Cleveland improved to 36-1 at home and became just the sixth team in NBA history to win 16 games in one month.
