CINCINNATI (AP) – Omri Casspi scored seven of his 12 points in overtime as the Cleveland Cavaliers pulled out a 114-111 preseason win over the Orlando Magic on Monday night.

Kyrie Irving, last season’s Rookie of the Year, snapped out of his preseason shooting slump with 22 points for the Cavaliers (3-2), who came from behind after blowing a 14-point third-quarter lead.

Glen Davis scored 27 points to lead Orlando (0-3).

Irving shot just .239 (11 of 46) from the field in Cleveland’s first four preseason games, but he scored nine straight to spark a 21-6 run that put the Cavaliers ahead 31-19 with 29.6 seconds left in the first half. He finished the first quarter with 11 points and the first half with 18, two more than his previous preseason single-game high of 16.

He finished an efficient 5 for 8 from the field and 11 for 11 on free throws.
