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.

TOP 25-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- Some outright regular season conference titles can be clinched tonight as part of a four-game top 25 schedule.

No. 5 Arizona tries to lay claim to the Pac-12 title with a win at home against California tonight. The 26-3 Wildcats scored a 23-point win over the Golden Bears in late January.

Seventh-ranked Wisconsin can wrap up the Big Ten regular season title on the road against Minnesota. Badgers star forward Frank Kaminsky tries to add to his player-of-the-year credentials. He heads into the game averaging 18.1 points, 8.3 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.6 blocks. Kaminsky is shooting 41 percent from 3-point range and 54 percent from the field overall.

No. 13 Utah is at Washington State tonight. The Utes can still stay in contention for at least a share of the Pac-12 regular season title with a win and Arizona loss.

No. 18 Arkansas is at South Carolina to round out the schedule.

NBA-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- If the adage that defense wins championships is true, the Trail Blazers could be on their way to an NBA title.

Portland has held opponents under 100 points a league-leading 38 times in 59 games. The Trail Blazers will try to shut down Dallas tonight as part of a two-game schedule. Northwest Division-leading Portland has won four in a row. The teams have split their two games this season.

Russell Westbrook tries to extend a remarkable run when he leads Oklahoma City into a meeting with Central-Division leading Chicago tonight. The Thunder guard has strung together four triple doubles, including one against Philadelphia last night. Westbrook is coming off surgery Saturday for a fractured bone in his cheek.

The bang-up Bulls are wrapping up a seven-game homestand on which they've gone 4-2. Chicago is playing without its starting backcourt of Derrick Rose and Jimmy Butler, who are sidelined with injuries.

NFL-49ERS-DOCKETT

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Defensive tackle Darnell Dockett has signed a two-year contract with the San Francisco 49ers that will keep him in the NFC West after playing all of his 10 NFL seasons with Arizona.

Agent Drew Rosenhaus confirmed the deal.

The 33-year-old Dockett sat out all of 2014 with a season-ending knee injury suffered during training camp. He started every game for the Cardinals in 2013, finishing with 46 tackles and 4 1/2 sacks.

GOLF-CADILLAC CHAMPIONSHIP

DORAL, Fla. (AP) -- Rory McIlroy heads up a top-notch field that tees it up at the Cadillac Championship today on Doral's Blue Monster. The No. 1-ranked player in the world is part of a field that includes the top 50 ranked golfers for the first time since the 2012 PGA Championship. McIlroy will be trying to rebound from missing the cut at the Honda Classic last week. Prior to that he finished either first or second in eight of his previous 12 events.

This is the first of the World Golf Championship tournaments of the year.

LPGA-SINGAPORE

SINGAPORE (AP) -- Inbee Park and Yani Tseng (YAH'-nee SEHNG) both shot 6-under 66 to share the lead after the opening round of the HSBC Women's Champions. Angela Stanford trails by a shot with No. 1-ranked Lydia Ko in a group that is two strokes back. The 17-year-old Ko went into the event on a two-tournament winning streak.
