The Cleveland Cavaliers traveled to Toronto on Friday night needing a win in the worst possible way. Nine losses in a row, they had to beat the Raptors, fresh off an upset over Philadelphia, to snap the skid. They did just that, beating Toronto with fourth period offensive explosion for a 84-80 win.
Cleveland scored 33 points in the fourth quarter to overcome a 12-point deficit after three periods of play. Antwan Jamison scored 24 points and had eight rebounds. Leston Hudson had 23 points to salvage a Cavs team that shot just 34 percent from the field.
The Cavs are in New Jersey on Sunday to take on the Nets.
