CLEVELAND — LeBron James tied a season high with 31 points, including 17 to spark a fourth-quarter comeback, and the Cleveland Cavaliers won their seventh straight, 118-114 over the Utah Jazz on Tuesday night.

Cleveland trailed 95-86 deficit midway through the fourth, but James took over and brought the Quicken Loans Arena crowd to its feet with one of his trademark plays.

With the Cavaliers trailing 95-91, James stole the ball near mid-court and headed to the basket. Rodney Hood wrapped his arms around James, but the four-time MVP made a layup anyway and flexed his bicep as Hood was called for the foul.

James made the foul shot and Cleveland followed with a 10-0 run to go ahead 104-98.

Alec Burks led Utah with 24 points while Gordon Hayward and Derrick Favors each added 17.
