Cleveland (WOIO) - It certainly wasn't the typical recipe for success, but at least the Cavaliers have a flair for the dramatic, building up a 21-point third quarter lead against the Raptors on Tuesday night, before squandering the lead, and then regaining it down the stretch, holding on for a 102-100 win.
Dion Waiters led the Cavaliers with 24 points, including two key free throws late, while Luol Deng added 19 points and sealed the deal with a steal in the final seconds.
Kyle Lowry led the Raptors with 22.
The Cavs (28-44) remain four and a half games out of the playoff picture with ten games to play.
