CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) – Anderson Varejao hit two crucial jumpers in overtime and tied a franchise record with a career-high 25 rebounds to lead the Cavaliers to an 87-81 win over the Orlando Magic on Thursday night.

The Cavaliers broke a season-high six-game losing streak while playing without All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving, who missed his first game this season because of a bruised left knee. Irving averages a team-high 22.2 points.

Orlando couldn’t hold a 10-point lead in the fourth quarter and Cleveland tied the game on Dion Waiters’ layup with .06 seconds remaining.

Varejao’s basket with 2:07 remaining in OT put Cleveland ahead 83-81. He added another basket with 1:34 left and hit two free throws with 23.9 seconds remaining to finish with 18 points.

Glen Davis scored 16 points for the Magic, who scored only two points in the extra session.
