Ray Allen sizzles late to rally Heat past Cavs
Miami, FL, United States (4E Sports) – LeBron James scored 30 points and Ray Allen delivered seven of his 17 points in the final two minutes to rally the Miami Heat past the Cleveland Cavaliers, 110-108, Saturday at American Airlines Arena.
The Heat once again relied on their experience to nail a hard-earned win against the Cavs, who had the driving seat most of the game.
Cleveland built a 59-48 halftime lead and held its lead until Lebron James, Dwyane Wade and Allen took over in the last 1:58 minutes.
With the Cavs leading 108-101 with barely two minutes left, James made a layup to cut the deficit to four points and then dished out to Allen for a go-ahead trey with 18 seconds remaining.
The Cavs had a chance to snatch back the lead but Wade came up with a key block on Pargo to virtually seal the victory for the Heat.
Jeremy Pargo delivered another solid outing as replacement for Cavs point guard Kyrie Irving, recording 16 points and 7 dimes in 33 minutes.
Anderson Varejao had a double-double with 10 points and 15 rebounds while Dion Waiters also scored 16 markers for the Cavs, who had 8 players in double figures.
