CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) — Kyrie Irving scored 28 points and the Cavaliers won back-to-back games for the first time in a month with a 91-83 overtime victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday night.

The Cavaliers, who broke a six-game losing streak Friday night against Washington, have won both games since general manager Chris Grant was fired last week.

Irving scored the final four points in regulation to tie it. Luol Deng’s 3-pointer on the first possession of overtime put Cleveland ahead for good, 81-78.

Nick Calathes scored 17 points to lead Memphis, which has lost three of four since winning six straight.

Deng began the overtime scoring with a 3-pointer from the corner as the shot clock was winding down. Baskets by Dion Waiters and Anderson Varejao, sandwiched around a 3-pointer by Calathes, left Cleveland with an 85-81 lead. A resounding dunk by Waiters and four free throws by Irving put the game away.
