Irving scores 39, Cavs beat Bucks 114-111 in OT

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Kyrie Irving made four free throws in the final 21.5 seconds of overtime and finished with 39 points while battling a flu bug, leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 114-111 win over the short-handed Milwaukee Bucks on Friday night.

Irving played despite being ill the past two days and missing practice Thursday. Although he wasn't at his best, the All-Star guard played 43 minutes and carried the Cavs to their fifth win in six home games.

Earl Clark made a 3-pointer as the shot clock expired with 44 seconds left, and Jarrett Jack added 17 points for the Cavs.

With Milwaukee down by three, O.J. Mayo missed two 3-pointers in the last 10 seconds.

Mayo had 20 points, John Henson 18 and Brandon Knight added 17 and a career-high 14 rebounds as the Bucks lost their fifth straight.
