FRANKLIN -- Junior Luke Kennard has committed to Duke but that doesn't mean that things are starting to settle down for the Franklin standout. In fact, quite the opposite is true.
   Head coach Brian Bales says that Kennard is now working harder than he's ever seen before and the junior is working on flexibility as well as many other areas that you might not first think of to improve your on court game.
   Kennard is also getting autograph requests from all over the country but he's also been very generous with his time.Kennard on life after commiting to Duke

CAVALIERS-RAPTORS

TORONTO (AP) -- LeBron James scored 29 points and matched a season high with 14 assists, Kevin Love had 22 points and 10 rebounds and the Cleveland Cavaliers held on late to beat the Toronto Raptors 120-112 on Wednesday night.

Kyrie Irving scored 26, J.R. Smith had 15 and James Jones 14 as the Cavaliers won their second straight and improved to 9-8 in the second game of back-to-backs.

Jonas Valanciunas scored 26 points and 11 rebounds, and DeMar DeRozan had 25 points for the Raptors, who lost for the sixth time in seven games.

Lou Williams scored 21 of his 26 points in the fourth quarter, but it wasn't enough for the Raptors. Toronto's All-Star point guard Kyle Lowry was rested for the third straight game.

James finished four rebounds shy of a triple-double as Cleveland clinched the season series against the Raptors with its third win in four meetings.

BLUE JACKETS-CLARKSON

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Columbus Blue Jackets right wing David Clarkson will miss four to six weeks with a torn oblique muscle suffered Tuesday night against the Washington Capitals.

The injured-ravaged club has totaled 406 man-games lost to injury with 19 games remaining. Last season's total was 292.

The 30-year-old Clarkson was acquired Feb. 26 from Toronto for injured right wing Nathan Horton. He was scoreless in three games.

Teammates on the injured list include center Boone Jenner (stress fracture in back, has missed last 32 games); left wing Jeremy Morin (elevated heart rate, missed last 17); defenseman Ryan Murray (high ankle sprain, missed last 13); and right wing Jack Skille (shoulder, out remainder of season). Three other Blue Jackets are also sidelined.

REDS-INDIANS

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) -- Hyped shortstop Francisco Lindor, the top prospect in Cleveland's organization, got two hits and showed off his glove Wednesday as the Indians beat the Cincinnati Reds 4-2 in a Cactus League exhibition.

The 21-year-old Lindor rose to Triple-A last year and he'll likely begin the season in the minors. However, it may not be long before he's permanently in Cleveland. Lindor singled twice, made a leaping catch to take away a hit and turned a slow roller in the infield grass into an easy out.

Reds outfielder Billy Hamilton homered leading off the first against Cleveland's Josh Tomlin, competing with four others for the No. 5 starter's job.

Cincinnati starter Anthony DeSclafani struck out two in two innings as he tries to lock down a rotation spot. The right-hander was acquired in December in the trade that sent starter Matt Latos to Florida.

T25-OHIO STATE-PENN STATE

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) -- D'Angelo Russell scored 28 points and coach Thad Matta tied the school record for wins in No. 23 Ohio State's 77-67 victory over Penn State on Wednesday night.

Matta is 297-91 in 11 seasons at Ohio State, tied with Fred Taylor. Matta's next win would give him the Buckeyes mark as well as his 400th career victory overall.

Jae'Sean Tate and Shannon Scott each added 13 points for the Buckeyes (22-8, 11-6 Big Ten). Russell was 5 of 8 from 3-point range.

Seniors D.J. Newbill (17 points) and Ross Travis (14) led Penn State (15-15, 3-14) during their final home game for the Nittany Lions. Newbill eclipsed the 2,000-point mark for his career; he has 2,011 points.
