(SportsNetwork.com) - The Atlanta Hawks have stepped up to every challenge during their 14-game winning streak and will face another daunting task Friday with Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and the Oklahoma City Thunder in town. The Hawks tied the longest winning streak in franchise history with a 110-91 triumph over the Indiana Pacers Wednesday and were led by DeMarre Carroll and Jeff Teague. The two scored 17 points apiece, while Al Horford netted 14 points to go along with seven rebounds and five assists. Paul Millsap and Pero Antic each scored 12 points for Atlanta, which prevailed in 14 straight games from Nov. 16-Dec. 14, 1993. The Hawks are 28-2 in the last 30 games and are 27 games over .500 (35-8). Its always good to set a franchise record, Carroll said. Its an honor, but at the same time we cant get too high on that. Atlanta is 2-0 thus far on a seven-game homestand and last tasted defeat Dec. 26 versus Milwaukee. The Hawks, who are unbeaten in the past five games at Philips Arena, have an 18-3 home record and will also host Minnesota, Brooklyn, Portland and Philadelphia. The Thunder have won four in a row, including the first three contests on a five-game road trip. Oklahoma City recorded a thrilling 105-103 overtime victory against the Washington Wizards on Wednesday, as Westbrooks running layup in the waning seconds lifted the visitors. Westbrook finished with 32 points and Durant poured in 34 points with seven assists. Anthony Morrow rounded out the double-digit scorers with 10 points for OKC, which scored 13 points in overtime and made only 39.2 percent. The Thunder struggled from downtown, making 6-of-29 3-pointers. We struggled to start the game, we couldnt get over the hump there for a second, said Durant. We took the lead. It was so much back-and-forth, we stayed pat in what we believe in and that is perseverance. The Thunder are 10-13 on the road and will close the journey Sunday against LeBron James in Cleveland. Oklahoma City won both meetings with Atlanta last season and will host the Hawks on March 20. The Thunder have won three straight and seven of the previous nine matchups between the teams.

Zach Parise Wild Jersey . -- David Price didnt think he would be in Port Charlotte this spring.CLEVELAND -- The Cavaliers have cleared a path for LeBron James to return to Cleveland. Theyve made their moves. Theyre just waiting for him to make his. The Cavs created enough salary-cap space to offer the superstar free agent a maximum contract on Wednesday agreeing to trade guard Jarrett Jack, swingman Sergey Karasev and centre Tyler Zeller in a three-team deal with Brooklyn and Boston, a person familiar with the deals told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because teams are not permitted to discuss trades until the leagues moratorium ends Thursday. The manoeuvring is designed to open room under the salary cap so they can re-sign the Akron-born James, the four-time league MVP and most sought-after player on the market. With open roster spots, Cleveland isnt done. Not long after making the trade with the Celtics and Nets, the Cavs had exploratory discussions with the Minnesota Timberwolves about a possible trade for three-time All-Star Kevin Love -- if James does return to Cleveland, said a person with knowledge of the inquiry. The Timberwolves would be looking for No. 1 overall draft pick Andrew Wiggins to be part of any potential package from Cleveland in order to consider parting with Love if the talks were to become more serious, the person said, speaking with the AP on condition of anonymity because neither team publicly announced the conversation. Whatever the Cavs next move is -- with or without James -- they could package together their other assets, including future first-round picks, to make a run at other All-Star players. Meanwhile, James had his meeting in Las Vegas with Miami president Pat Riley. James, his agent Rich Paul, Riley and Heat executive Andy Elisburg were at the meeting, a person with direct knowledge of the discussions told The AP. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because neither side publicly announced who would be attending the meeting or when it would take place. James has not made a decision and will not make any announcements before Thursday, the person said. With nothing finalized, LeBronathon 2014 will last at least one more day with the NBA --- and fans in Miami and Cleveland -- on edge.dddddddddddd And as he takes fans on another summer thrill ride, James has one more offer to consider in deciding where to play next season: Ohios Cedar Point amusement park is promising to rename one of its roller coasters "King James" if he returns home to play for the Cavs. A park spokesman says its a legitimate offer that originated with the CEO. Cedar Point sent out a tweet with the proposal on Wednesday, telling James, who has visited the park in Sandusky, Ohio, many times, the ball was "in his court." In the three-team trade the Cavs pulled off earlier Wednesday, Cleveland will receive guard Marcus Thornton from the Nets and send him, Zeller and a future first-round pick to the Celtics. Also, the Cavs are trading Jack and Karasev to the Nets. Jack, who signed with Cleveland as a free agent last season, was scheduled to make $6.3 million, Zeller will make $1.6 million and Karasev $1.4 million. In trading those salaries, the Cavs have enough to give James a maximum, $20.7 million contract -- if he decides to sign with Cleveland. James played his first seven seasons with the Cavs before leaving as a free agent in 2010, and its apparent the team is doing everything it can to bring him back. Under NBA rules, teams must abide by a salary cap set by the league. If the combined salaries of the teams roster surpasses the cap, teams are forced to a pay additional taxes. Last season, the salary cap was approximately $59 million, and the league announced Wednesday that it will increase 7.5 per cent to an all-time high of $63.065 million for the 2014-15 season. The tax level -- the point at which a team is penalized for exceeding the salary cap -- for next season has increased by 7.1 per cent to $76.829 million. ESPN first reported details of the three-team trade. Jacks first season with Cleveland didnt go as he or the Cavs had hoped. He signed a four-year, $25 million deal last July after playing in Golden State. The Cavs counted on him being a leader for their young team, but it didnt work out as Cleveland finished 33-49, missed the playoffs and fired coach Mike Brown. ' ' '
