LeBron gets stitches, scores 23 in fourth as Cavs beat Nets

CLEVELAND (AP) LeBron James got stitches and then sliced Brooklyn open by himself.

James scored 23 of his 33 points in the fourth quarter - including 18 straight for Cleveland - and the Cavaliers won their sixth straight, 119-109 over the Nets on Wednesday night.

After he was accidentally "head-butted" by Brooklyn's Tyler Zeller in the third quarter, James went to the locker room, where Cleveland's medical staff closed the gash above his lip.
