Final Score: Cavaliers reverse slide, top Kings 120-108

Cleveland picked up a much-needed win Friday. The Cavaliers shook off their two-game skid with a 120-108 road win over the Sacramento Kings Friday.

Mike Dunleavy has yet to report to the Hawks because he wants a buyout, ESPN.com reported Sunday. The Hawks...
