"Obviously, he's one of the dominant five guys in the league - in the paint and in rebounds, so when I'm at the four I try to be helpful as much as I can, you know create more space and spread out". He was thoroughly outplayed by Hardaway and the Cavs shot just 25.0 percent from three-point range.

Kyle Single inbounded the ball to Steven Adams, who fed Westbrook for the victor.

Danilo Gallinari scored 22 of his season-high 34 points in the third quarter for the Nuggets.

The Atlanta Hawks topped their stunning short-handed victory in Cleveland on Friday with a 26-point fourth-quarter comeback on Sunday to shock the Cavaliers in overtime.

LeBron James fouled out in overtime after racking up a triple-double - scoring 32, rebounding 15 and assisting 10.

With the defeat, Cleveland, which is the defending champion, dropped into a tie with Boston atop the Eastern Conference Standings with two games remaining on the regular-season schedule.

- If the Cavaliers and the Celtics both have the same results in their final two games (two wins, both split, or both lose two in a row), the Cavaliers - who own the tiebreaker - will claim the No. 1 seed. Boston and Washington split the season series (2-2) and would have matching conference records if they do end up tied (since Boston is now also up by two games in the conference record). They outscored Cleveland 44-18 in the fourth quarter, tying the game at 111.

CLEVELAND - All season, Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said he would prioritize health over postseason seeding when it comes to managing his team.

Terrence Ross had 29 points for the Magic, while Evan Fournier had 23 and Aaron Gordon added 17. NY rookie Willy Hernangomez tied his career high with 24 points and had 11 rebounds.

Boston led by as many as 19 in the second half, but the Hornets battled back to take a seven-point lead midway through the fourth quarter before Thomas took over. He went to the locker room in the third quarter for treatment, returned and checked in with 7:11 left.
