(Newser) – LeBron James recorded his second straight triple-double in the Cleveland Cavaliers’ 106-97 win over the Indiana Pacers. The King finished with 31 points, 14 rebounds and 12 assists; it was the sixth time this season he had a triple-double, reports the Associated Press. James’ teammates also helped out: Larry Hughes had 19 points and Zydrunas Ilgauskas had 14 points and 17 rebounds.

The one dark spot for Cleveland was the loss of guard Daniel Gibson to a sprained ankle in the third quarter; a team spokesman said x-rays were negative. The young shooter out of Texas had five 3-pointers in the first half. Danny Granger scored 18 of his 30 points in the first half to keep Indiana close.
