LeBron has 27, Cavs win 8th in row, 110-107 over Mavs in OT
DALLAS (AP) LeBron James had 27 points and the go-ahead layup in overtime, Kyrie Irving added 22 points and some big 3-pointers and the Cleveland Cavaliers extended their winning streak to eight games with a 110-107 victory over the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday night.
James' layup with a minute left in overtime pushed the Cavs ahead 106-105. After an attempted 3 by Deron Williams rattled out for Dallas, Irving beat the shot clock with a 3-pointer from the top of the key.
Cleveland never led until Irving made a 3-pointer with 10 minutes left in regulation to make it 75-74. That was the first of nine lead changes over a span of less than 4 minutes that Irving capped with another 3 to put the Cavs up 85-83.
Chandler Parsons led Dallas with a season-high 25 points on 10-of-14 shooting.
