KINGS-CAVALIERS

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving combined for 44 points, and LeBron James scored 19 in his return from a one-game absence, leading the Cleveland Cavaliers past the Sacramento Kings 101-90 on Friday night for their ninth straight win.

Love led Cleveland with 23 points, including 16 in the first quarter, while Irving, who scored an arena record 55 points Wednesday against Portland, added 21.

James returned after missing Wednesday's game with a sprained right wrist. He was 7 for 16 from the field in 33 minutes, but made five straight shots, including a 3-pointer and a dunk off a behind-the-back dribble, as Cleveland put the game away early in the fourth quarter.

A team trainer placed a brace on James' wrist in the third quarter, which he wore the remainder of the game.

LOVE'S RETURN

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Kevin Love says he isn't expecting a warm welcome when he plays in Minnesota for the first time since he was traded to Cleveland.

The Cavaliers visit the Timberwolves on Saturday night. Love says he expects to hear plenty of boos.

Love spent six years in Minnesota before he was traded to Cleveland last summer. He supplanted Kevin Garnett as the face of the Timberwolves franchise, but the team never made the playoffs.

Love asked for a trade last summer. The Wolves received Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and Thaddeus Young in return.

Love says he expects a reception similar to the one he got early in his career in Portland. Fans booed him there because the Oregon native chose to go to college at UCLA.

BLUE JACKETS MOVES

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- The Columbus Blue Jackets have activated defenseman Ryan Murray off injured reserve and assigned right wing Josh Anderson to their American Hockey League affiliate in Springfield, Massachusetts.

Murray has missed the last 36 games because of a knee injury.

The 21-year-old Murray, the No. 2 pick overall in the 2013 draft, also missed the first seven games of the season because of an offseason knee surgery. He has four goals and 17 assists and a +4 plus/minus rating in 66 NHL games.

The 20-year-old Anderson made his NHL debut on Jan. 16 and picked up an assist for his first NHL point on Thursday night at Florida.

CINCINNATI-MOVING UP

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Point guard Troy Caupain's best game gives Cincinnati a sense it's still in the race.

The sophomore scored a career-high 20 points before picking up his second technical foul on Thursday night while leading the Bearcats to a 70-58 win over Connecticut.

The Bearcats (15-5, 6-2) are alone in third place in the American Athletic Conference, trailing Tulsa (8-0) and Southern Methodist (8-1). Cincinnati plays at SMU next Thursday and at Tulsa on March 4.

The Bearcats have gotten their bearings after coach Mick Cronin was sidelined in December by medical issues. He can't coach games or practice the rest of the season. They're 8-3 under associate head coach Larry Davis.
