Stretching their third-quarter lead to as many as 14 points, the Sacramento Kings appeared poised to play the role of spoiler in the Cleveland Cavaliers' 12-game winning streak on Wednesday night.
Not so fast.
Catching an alley-oop pass from teammate Dwyane Wade, LeBron James slammed home a third-quarter dunk to trim Sacramento's lead to just a single point. James' highlight reel dunk capped a 25-12 Cleveland run, which helped the Cavs climb out of what was a 62-48 deficit early in the third quarter.

Although the Kings took a 5-point lead into the fourth quarter, the Cavs hot shooting continued, with Cleveland eventually regaining the lead on a Kyle Korver 3-point shot less than 2 minutes into the final period. With a victory, Cleveland would win its 13th straight game, tying the franchise record for longest winning streak.
