The Cavaliers found themselves down 109-100 with three and a half minutes to play Thursday night in Brooklyn. From there the Cavs charged back with Donovan Mitchell and Evan Mobley leading the charge before a go-ahead 3 pointer from Isaac Okoro with zero point seven seconds remaining on the clock.
With the win the Cavs improve to 47-48 on the season, and thanks to a Knicks loss tonight in Orlando the Cavs now hold a five game lead over New York for the fourth spot in the Eastern Conference standings with just 7 games to play. The comeback win also marked their fifteenth time coming back from a double digit deficit, and the eleventh time winning after trailing by double digits in the second half.
The Cavaliers will enjoy two days off before facing the Houston Rockets Sunday at Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse.
