Gee, Thompson Lead Cavaliers Past Magic, 91-85
CLEVELAND (AP) — Alonzo Gee scored 19 points and the Cleveland Cavaliers rallied in the fourth quarter to beat the Orlando Magic 91-85 on Sunday night.
Tristan Thompson had 15 points and 16 rebounds for the Cavaliers, who have won two in a row for the first time since Feb. 26-27.
Cleveland, which broke a season-high, 10-game losing streak Friday in Boston, trailed by seven points late in the third quarter, but took the lead for good early in the fourth and made clutch plays down the stretch.
Tobias Harris scored 26 points while Nikola Vucevic added 21 points and 21 rebounds for Orlando, which has lost five in a row and 13 of 14. The Magic have dropped 11 straight away from home — the second-longest road losing streak in franchise history.
