LeBron shakes off strep throat, leads Cavs past Bucks 102-95

CLEVELAND (AP) LeBron James returned from sickness, and the Cavaliers felt a whole lot better.

Still not quite himself, James came back after missing one game with strep throat and scored 24 points, Kyrie Irving added 25 and Cleveland capped a solid February with a 102-95 win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday night.

James sat out Saturday's loss to Chicago - the Cavs fell to 0-4 this season without their superstar - and was listed as questionable before arriving at Quicken Loans Arena and getting in a workout. He looked fit from the start, delivering an early dunk and adding one in the fourth that he capped by screaming, "That's and one!" at MiIwaukee's John Henson, who fouled him.
