Mike Dunleavy came off the bench to add 12 points for the Bucks, while rookie forward John Henson chipped in six points and seven rebounds in 12 minutes of play.

Cleveland found production from their guards, as well, with C.J. Miles scoring 18 points and making 4 of 7 three-point shots. Point guard Kyrie Irving added 16 points with three assists, but also turned the ball over three times.
