Kyrie Irving scored 35 points, including 13 in the final 2:52, as the host Cleveland Cavaliers stunned the Oklahoma City Thunder 115-110 on Saturday.

One night after saying he was "disinterested" during a loss in Detroit, Irving was simply spectacular down the stretch. He single-handedly closed out one of the NBA's best teams, making his last five shots and showing why he's an All-Star at age 20. Irving's biggest bucket was a 3-pointer with 42 seconds left to make it 113-108.

"He's a killer," said newly acquired Cavs forward Marreese Speights, who added 21 points. "I knew a little about him, I didn't know THAT."

Kevin Durant scored 32 points and Russell Westbrook had 28 for the Thunder, which came in 35-11 and with the league's best road record.

Durant left briefly in the third quarter with an injured rib but returned and scored 13 in the fourth.

Spurs 96, Wizards 86: Tim Duncan sprained his left knee and right ankle in the first half of host San Antonio's victory over Washington.

The Wizards' Martell Webster rolled into the back of Duncan's legs while fighting for a rebound with 3:54 left in the second quarter, and there were audible gasps in the crowd while the All-Star was on the floor holding his left knee for several minutes.

The severity of the injuries is not known, but Duncan did not return to the bench after being helped off the court.
