Cavs clinging to lead, LeBron limping
Cleveland is up 109-106 with 2:35 left in overtime, but just called timeout to get LeBron James some extra rest. The Cavs' star has been noticeably limping for much of overtime, and sat down on the scorers table as soon as time was called.

Yet another "Millsap doesn't look right" game. Look up at the box: 22 and 7, 5-10 FG & 11-11 FT. Good defensive work.
