The line for this game is Cavs by 8 points.

LeBron James keeps ticking off personal milestones while leading his team to victory. James, who moved into 10th place on the NBA’s all-time scoring list on Sunday, will try to keep the Cleveland Cavaliers undefeated when they host the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday.

Howard posted 20 points on 8-of-10 shooting and 14 rebounds in Saturday’s win, highlighting an offensive performance that saw all five starters score in double figures while combining to shoot 56.5 from the field. Point guard Dennis Schroder (6-of-14) was the only starter to connect on fewer than 50 percent of his shots but made up for it with 12 assists. The 12 assists marked a season-high for Schroder, who is averaging 15 points and 6.5 assists in his first full season as the starter after taking over for the departed Jeff Teague.

James needed all his 25 points on Saturday to cover an off game from point guard Kyrie Irving, who stumbled to a season-low eight points on 3-of-17 shooting. Irving, who leads the team in scoring at an average of 23 points, hit multiple 3-pointers in each of the first five games but went 0-of-5 from beyond the arc on Saturday. Channing Frye picked up some of the scoring slack with 12 points off the bench and scored in double figures in each of the last three games.

Hawks reserve PF Mike Muscala is shooting an NBA-best 71 percent from the floor.

Cavaliers F Kevin Love is averaging 23.3 points in the last three games and is 7-of-15 from 3-point range in that span.

Cleveland swept Atlanta in the Eastern Conference semifinals last spring.
