Bucks Vs. Cavaliers Final Score: Milwaukee Comes Back To Force OT, Beats Cleveland

The Cleveland Cavaliers, playing without their star rookie Kyrie Irving, had no problem building leads on Friday night, but they had troubles keeping them. Ultimately, Milwaukee got the best of the Cavs in an extra frame, winning 113-112.

Cleveland started the game up 17-2 and had an eight point lead going into the fourth quarter, but Milwaukee started the fourth quarter on a 12-5 run to pull within one. In the final three minutes, the Bucks came back from four to tie it at 102 apiece.

The Cavs had a chance to take the lead with three seconds left, but Antawn Jamison missed not one but two freebies. In overtime, the Bucks scored first and outscored the Cavs 11-10 for the one-point win after the Cavs hit a meaningless three at the buzzer.

Ramon Sessions, filling in for Irving at the starting point guard position, scored 12 points and had 16 assists. Antawn Jamison, even though he missed the two free throws at the end, led all scorers with 34 points and had 11 rebounds.
