CLEVELAND (AP) — The headband returned. The aggressiveness, dunks and dazzling plays all came back, too.

LeBron James wasn’t going to have a second sub-par game.

James attacked from the start and scored 33 points, Kyrie Irving added 21 and the Cleveland Cavaliers evened their semifinal series with Chicago, beating the Bulls 106-91 in Game 2 on Wednesday night.

Donning the signature headband he ditched in March, James played like a man possessed. He powered to the basket, leaving Bulls defenders in his wake and keeping the Cavs, missing two starters, from falling into a 2-0 hole. He added eight rebounds and five assists for Cleveland, which led by 25 in the third quarter and withstood a third-quarter charge by the Bulls.



Rockets 115,
Clippers 109

HOUSTON (AP) — James Harden scored 16 of his 32 points in the fourth quarter to lift the Houston Rockets a 115-109 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night that evened their Western Conference semifinal at one game apiece.

Dwight Howard had 24 points and 16 rebounds for the Rockets, who bounced back from a 117-101 loss in the opener. Game 3 is Friday night in Los Angeles.

Trevor Ariza added 15 points and 13 rebounds for Houston, which made 42 of its 64 free throws.
