Magic, Cavaliers Headed To Overtime

The Orlando Magic and the Cleveland Cavaliers are headed to overtime tied at 107.

The Magic used a 19-4 run to take a one-point lead at 72-71, but the Cavs quickly responded, ripping off an 8-2 run to regain control of the game.

The Magic trailed by as many as six in the fourth quarter.

Trailing by two with 1:55 to go, Glen Davis hit two free throws to tie the game. After a stop, Davis was fouled again, but made just one free throw. The two teams traded possessions before Davis hit another basket, pushing the Magic lead to three and giving him 27 points on the night. Then, rookie forward Andrew Nicholson made a big mistake. Nicholson fouled Jeremy Pargo while shooting a two-point jumper. Pargo calmly hit the free throw.

Davis missed an 18-footer at the buzzer for the win.

Kyrie Irving scored 22 points to lead the Cavs.
