Blazers survive 2OT vs Cavs
Nicolas Batum's first attempt at making the game-winning shot didn't count. He got it right the second time.
Batum's 3-pointer with 0.2 seconds left in the second overtime gave the Portland Trail Blazers a 118-117 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday night.
An apparent game-winning basket by Batum in the first overtime was disallowed because it came after time expired. The basket was first ruled good, but the call was changed after a video review. Batum, who celebrated after making that shot, got a chance to do it again and this time it was the winner.
''After the one in the first overtime was too late, I had to make sure this one counted,'' he said.
The game featured 16 lead changes and was tied 20 times.
