Box Score: Cavaliers 113, Hawks 111

Josh Smith has had some rough performances against the Cavaliers in his career, and tonight, he forgot to account for Alonzo Gee. Dion Waiters’s three-point attempt went awry, but Gee was there for the putback with 0.4 seconds remaining as the Cavaliers came back from 11 down at the half to snap a 4-game skid and win 113-111 at Philips Arena. Jeremy Pargo led the wine and gold with 22 points with 10 of those coming in the final quarter, and Dion Waiters had 21 points and 7 assists. Anderson Varejao stuffed the stats again with a 20 point, 18 rebound effort. The Cavaliers, one of the worst free throw shooting teams in the association, completed a brilliant 21-of-22 from the line. For the Hawks, Smith led all scorers with 25 and Lou Williams added 18 and two killer threes in the final minute and a half. The Cavaliers are now 4-12 and face the Portland Trailblazers tomorrow night in The Q.

    Great to see Tristan have such a good game on the boards. His presence was felt big time.
