LeBron James continued his recent impressive form to fire the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 120-112 victory over the Oklahoma Thunder.

Away from home, James dominated the game, scoring 37 points with eight rebounds and eight assists, and putting the Cavs on a four-game winning streak.

Fourteen of James’ points came in the first five minutes and, while Oklahoma continued to put up a fight, the Cavs were leading 62-57 at halftime.

By the fourth, the Cavs were in control and sealed the win with a dunk from Larry Nance Jr, who is making up the new-look Cavs alongside George Hill, Rodney Hood, Jordan Clarkson.

Elsewhere, James Harden scored 34 points as the Houston Rockets overcame the Minnesota Timberwolves 126-108.

The fourth quarter proved to be the difference as the Rockets made 10 three-pointers to seal nine wins in a row.

Minnesota had hoped to extend their near-record 13-game home winning streak, and while they got off to a good start, leading by 13 in the first quarter, the Rockets pulled ahead by half-time and saw out the win thanks to a flurry of three-pointers from Ryan Anderson in the fourth.

Miami fought back to add 13 in the fourth but their efforts fell short as the game closed 115-112 to the Raptors.
