INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Larry Nance Jr. put himself in perfect position to make the final play Tuesday night.

After outwrestling Victor Oladipo in front of the basket, the Cleveland Cavaliers center waited patiently as he anticipated Rodney Hood's errant layup then threw up his right hand and barely beat the buzzer.

Nance finished with 15 points, a career-high 16 rebounds, six assists and the first game-winning shot of his pro career to give the Cavaliers a rare 92-91 road victory. It ended Indiana's seven-game winning streak.
