Cleveland, OH (Sports Network) - Nicolas Batum's go-ahead 3-pointer with 0.2
seconds left in double overtime lifted the Portland Trail Blazers to a 118-117
win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Portland trailed, 117-115, with 2.5 left and following a timeout, Damian
Lillard passed to Batum along the right corner and he turned, fired, and
nailed the triple in front of the Cleveland bench.
The Cavs didn't get a shot off before time expired.
Lillard tallied 24 points and Batum added 22 for Portland, which snapped its
four-game losing streak.
"It was much needed, that's an understatement," Blazers head coach Terry
Stotts said of the victory.
Anderson Varejao had 19 points and 17 rebounds for Cleveland, which has
dropped 11 of its last 13 contests.
