Recap


Cavaliers 115, Thunder 110
: Kyrie Irving scored 13 of his 35 points in the final three minutes as host Cleveland survived a wild finish with Oklahoma City.

Marreese Speights scored 13 of his 21 points during a 39-point fourth quarter for the Cavaliers, who erased a double-digit deficit in the second half to stun the Thunder. C.J. Miles chipped in 16 points off the bench.

Kevin Durant scored 32 points and Russell Westbrook had 28 for Oklahoma City, which lost for just the sixth time in 28 games when the two stars reach the 20-point mark. Serge Ibaka contributed 18 points, 12 rebounds and four blocked shots.

Durant's three-point play at the end of the first half gave the Thunder a 57-52 advantage, and they led by as many as 11 in the third quarter. Speights had 10 points during a 16-3 Cavaliers run to begin the fourth, leaving the hosts with a 92-84 lead.

Oklahoma City rallied to take a 101-100 lead on a Westbrook jumper with 3:39 left, but Irving took control from there. He answered a Durant 3-pointer with a tiebreaking layup that gave Cleveland the lead for good with 72 seconds to go and then buried a 3-pointer to make it a five-point game in the final minute.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Durant sustained a right rib contusion in the third quarter and went to the locker room. He returned with just under 10 minutes left in the game. The Cavs, who have won four of their last six after starting 10-32, made 9-of-18 3-pointers and 20-of-23 free throws. ... Kevin Martin added 15 points off the bench for the Thunder, including two 3-pointers in the wild fourth quarter.
