The Cavs guard calmly sank the crucial charities before Elfrid Payton missed a contested layup with three seconds left. The three officials ruled there was an inadvertent whistle and held a jump ball at midcourt. The Magic was called for a jump-ball violation, and the Cavs won.

However, Isaiah Thomas was fouled on a drive to the rim and drilled a pair of free throws with 11 seconds remaining to hand the Cavaliers the win.

The fourth quarter was a back-and-forth game as both teams looked to win badly.

LeBron James, who just before gametime learned he was the leading vote getter for the NBA All-Star Game next month, finished with 16 points, six assists and five rebounds.

James scored 16 and now needs 25 to become the seventh player in National Basketball Association history to reach 30,000. James committed six turnovers, including an ill-advised pass stolen by Gordon that led to Shelvin Mack's go-ahead basket with 31.5 seconds to go. Derrick Rose, playing in his first game since November 7, scored nine off the bench.

Global Poll Shows US Prestige Plummeting Under Trump
In just under half of the world's countries - 65 out of 134 - United States standing collapsed, by 10 percentage points or more . From Politico : The steep decline , researchers said, can be largely attributed to the shift in leadership in the West Wing .

New Bench Bunch - Lue tried out a new 5 off the bench Thursday night - Derrick Rose, Dwyane Wade, Kyle Korver, Jeff Green and Tristan Thompson. The Tribe, though, would never cut the lead to under 13 points in the second half.

The Magic have lost 28 of 33 games.

Payton led the Magic (13-32) with 19 points, while Gordon and Evan Fournier each scored 17.

The Magic played without guard Aaron Afflalo, who was suspended two games without pay by the National Basketball Association for fighting with Minnesota's Nemanja Bjelica on Tuesday.

The Orlando Magic drove the ball with objective or swung it from side to side to find open shooters, and defensively they helped one another to get enough stops to frustrate the Cleveland Cavaliers and their booing fans at Quicken Loans Arena. They also missed nine free throws. Harden first time this season failed to score at least 20 points, converting only 3 of 15 shots from the game. They led by as many as 23 and were ahead 67-47 at the break. In the 37 games he played without Thomas this season, he attempted 15 shots or more 17 times.
