Saturday, March 21, 2009. (AP) -- Mo Williams scored 24 points, LeBron James added 22 and the surging Cleveland Cavaliers rolled to their eighth straight win, 102-96 over the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday.
The loss snapped Atlanta's seven-game winning streak.
All of Atlanta's wins during the streak came at home, but the Hawks found circumstances much more difficult at Quicken Loans Arena, where the Cavaliers are 32-1. Cleveland (56-13) has the best record in the NBA and is 16-2 since the All-Star break.
Atlanta led briefly early in the game, but the Cavaliers went on a 12-0 run late in the first quarter to build a 23-9 lead. The margin ballooned to 40-16 early in the second quarter, leading to an afternoon of frustration for the Hawks.
