Cavaliers Edge Past Spurs in Overtime Thriller 132-129

CLEVELAND, OH -- Andre Drummond returned to the Cavaliers after battling a leg injury and made an immediate impact. The Cavaliers' big man controlled the glass for the entirety of the game, pulling in 17 rebounds to go along with an impressive 28 points. Kevin Love struggled to find a rhythm until late into the game, hitting a clutch three pointer in overtime to help lift the Cavaliers over the visiting Spurs by the final score of 132-129.

The Cavaliers had a two-point lead with just over 3 seconds remaining before Rudy Gay caught an inbound and drained a game-tying midrange jumper to force overtime. Andre Drummond put the Cavs ahead 124-22 with a layup and Kevin Love followed up the layup with a big time triple to give Cleveland a five point lead. Love shot just 3 of 12 from the field, but made up for his scoring struggles by grabbing 18 rebounds. Collin Sexton lit up the San Antonio defense for 26 total points on 8-19 shooting.

The Cavaliers have now swept the season series against the Spurs, beating them in overtime in both matchups. Since JB Bickerstaff took over as Cleveland head coach, the Cavs sit at a 5-5 record and are gaining momentum from each win. Cleveland will have a much needed day off on Monday before heading to Chicago to take on the Bulls. Tip-off on Tuesday evening is set for 8:00 pm ET at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois.
