Cavaliers Vs. Nuggets Final Score: Kyrie Irving's Late Layup Snaps Cleveland's 6-Game Losing Streak, 100-99

The Cleveland Cavaliers came into Denver losers of a season-high six straight games and 10-point underdogs on Wednesday night. Thanks to Antawn Jamison and No. 1 overall pick in last year's draft Kyrie Irving, the Cavaliers were able to leave the Pepsi Center with a 100-99 win.

Antawn Jamison scored 26 points in the first half on 8-for-13 shooting, helping the Cavaliers to a two-point halftime lead. He would finish with 33 points. In the second half, the rookie Irving took over, scoring 14 of his 18 points, 10 of those coming in the final three minutes. With four seconds left in the game and the Cavs down one, it was Irving's driving layup that provided the Cavs their 14th win of the season.

Al Harrington led the Nuggets with 22 points off the bench.

Cleveland will look to build off Irving's third game-winner this season when they return to the hardwood at Oklahoma City on Friday.
