CLEVELAND — Avery Bradley made a corner jumper at the horn to give the Boston Celtics a stunning 104-103 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday night.
Bradley’s shot just in front of Boston’s bench dropped through as the final second ticked off the clock, giving the Celtics their eighth win in nine games.
Boston trailed by five points with 18 seconds left before Celtics forward Jae Crowder made a 3-pointer — his only basket — and Evan Turner scored on a layup while being fouled by J.R. Smith with 4 seconds to go. Turner missed his free throw but the ball went out of bounds off Cleveland’s LeBron James.
Kevin Love injured his leg during the second half, but it ended up only being a thigh bruise. He stayed out of the rest of the game as a precaution.
James led the Cavs with 30 points.
.@kevinlove suffered a left thigh bruise — will not return tonight.
