Saturday's National Basketball Association Capsules

Nov 29, 2009 - 6:07 AM CLEVELAND(AP) -- Mo Williams made all seven of his 3-point attempts, LeBron James scored 25 points with 12 assists and the Cleveland Cavaliers rebounded from a lackluster loss in Charlotte by beating the road-tested Dallas Mavericks 111-95 on Saturday night.

Williams finished with 25 points and Anderson Varejao scored 15 - 13 in the second half - for the Cavs, who were beaten 94-87 by the Bobcats on Friday in center Shaquille O'Neal's return after missing six games with a shoulder injury. Cleveland also got a huge boost from troubled guard Delonte West.

West, who played just over two minutes on Friday and has been ineffective recently while dealing with personal and health issues, added 10 points and 10 rebounds in 29 minutes.

Dirk Nowitzki scored 27 and Jason Terry 25 for Dallas.

Bobcats 92, Wizards 76=

WASHINGTON (AP) - Gerald Wallace had 14 points and 14 rebounds, and Tyson Chandler and Raymond Felton each scored 12 points for Charlotte.
