CLEVELAND: LeBron James rebounded from one of his worst games of the season to score 23 points and newly acquired center Channing Frye scored 15 off the bench in his second game with his new team, guiding the Cavaliers to a 114-103 victory Wednesday night against the Charlotte Hornets.



James matched a season-low with 12 points and committed six turnovers in Monday’s loss to the Pistons, but returned to form with a little bit of rest. Guard Kyrie Irving scored 23 points and guard J.R. Smith scored 16 for the Cavs, who won for the sixth time in their last seven games. Tristan Thompson grabbed 10 rebounds, while Matthew Dellavedova scored 10 points and passed for seven assists off the bench.



The Cavs shot 50 percent from and erupted for 40 points in the second quarter, their first 40-point quarter of the season. They maintained a double-digit lead for much of the second half when Frye’s 3-pointer with 8:42 left stretched the lead to 101-81. They led by as many as 24 before cruising.



The 114 points are the most the Hornets have surrendered in a regulation game since allowing 122 in a home loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Dec. 30.



The Cavs lost to the Hornets in Charlotte three weeks ago, ending James’ streak of 21 consecutive victories over the franchise.



Guard Kemba Walker scored 20 points and Frank Kaminsky scored 16 off the bench for the Hornets, who had their five-game winning streak ended. Al Jefferson scored 12 points and grabbed six rebounds in his third game back from knee surgery.
