CLEVELAND, Ohio — The Cavs pulled off a stunning 10-point win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday night, doing that without injured Cavs Anderson Varejao, C.J. Miles and Dion Waiters.
The final score was 114-104.
The Cavs had Kyrie Irving on the floor, and he worked his magic, leading the team to a 42-point fourth quarter in overcoming a deficit to win by double digits.
We did not see that one coming.
Kevin Durant hit a three-pointer for the Thunder with 4:35 left and the home team led 97-95, but Jarrett Jack answered with a three to give the Cavs the lead, 98-97 for good.
Irving scored 6 points after Jacks three-pointer, and Jack did the same. Add to those hoops, Spencer Hawes made two buckets to account for all the scoring late. The Cavs held Oklahoma City to 28 points in that fourth quarter to post the victory.
Irving added 9 assists and 5 rebounds to his 31 points to lead the way. Jack had 21 points and Hawes chipped in with 19. Tristan Thompson had a double-double with 11 points and 11 rebounds. The Cavs made 11 of 26 three pointers, shooting 42.3 percent.
The Cavs are off until Friday night when they host Utah.
