76ERS-CAVALIERS

CLEVELAND (AP) -- LeBron James scored 20 points, Kyrie Irving added 17 and the Cleveland Cavaliers hung on for an 87-86 win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday.

The Cavaliers earned their 16th straight home win despite being held scoreless in the final 4:04.

Trailing by a point, the 76ers called timeout with 8.5 seconds left. Nerlens Noel missed a shot in the lane and Tristan Thompson was fouled while grabbing the rebound. Cleveland called timeout to inbound the ball at midcourt. The pass was tipped away as time ran out.

Robert Covington scored 19 points to lead Philadelphia, but missed two free throws with 1:07 left that could have put the 76ers ahead.

Cleveland sustained two injuries during the game. Kevin Love strained his lower back in the fourth quarter while Iman Shumpert injured his left ankle while missing a breakaway dunk in the second quarter.

REDS-ANGELS

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Cincinnati right-hander Jason Marquis continued his strong comeback with six good innings in the Reds' 8-6 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday.

Marquis, 121-114 in 14 big-league seasons, is competing for a spot in the rotation after missing all of 2014 following Tommy John Surgery on his right elbow. In his sixth spring start, he worked six innings and allowed seven hits and three runs with two walks and three strikeouts.

Andrew Heaney, acquired from the Dodgers in the Howie Kendrick trade, struggled again in his fifth start for the Angels. He allowed eight hits and six runs with five strikeouts over five innings.

C. J. Cron hit his fourth spring homer, a two-run shot off Marquis in the third inning.

Chris Dominguez hit his third spring homer off Heaney and had four hits. Irving Falu had three hits for the Reds.

WHITE SOX-INDIANS

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) -- Tyler Flowers and George Kottaras had key doubles in Chicago's three-run fourth inning, spoiling T.J. House's day after he was told he earned a spot in Cleveland's rotation as the White Sox beat the Indians 4-1 on Sunday.

Flowers doubled to score Gordon Beckham and he later scored along with J.B. Schuck on a long double by Kottaras to give Chicago a 3-1 lead.

The Indians scored an unearned run off White Sox starter Scott Carroll in the first inning. Jason Kipnis walked and Michael Brantley, returning after he sat out with a sore back, singled. Beckham's wild throw on an attempted double play allowed Kipnis to score.

Carroll allowed just two hits in three innings.

House, who will start on April 12 against Detroit, allowing four runs and six hits in six innings. The left-hander has had one bad inning spoil each of his last three starts, but pitched well enough to convince the Indians he belongs in the rotation.

Michah Johnson had two hits for the White Sox and had a stolen base taken away when Beckham interfered with Roberto Lopez's throw.

NBA-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- The battle for supremacy of the NBA's Southwest Division continues tonight as the two teams vying for the top spot, Houston and Memphis, are both in action. The now first-place Rockets, who have won four straight and seven of 10, are visiting Atlantic Division champ Toronto, while the slumping Grizzlies, who have lost three in a row and five of 10, are home to Sacramento.

Two teams vying for the final playoff berth in the Eastern Conference are squaring off tonight as Charlotte plays host to Boston. As a new day begins the Celtics are a half-game back of idle Brooklyn for the eighth spot while the Hornets are a full game back of the Nets.

The remaining games this evening feature the Southeast Division champion Atlanta Hawks, who have clinched the top seed in the Eastern Conference, home to Milwaukee, the Utah Jazz at Minnesota, Portland home to Phoenix and the Lakers at Philadelphia in a game that features two teams with a combined 37 wins.
