CLEVELAND - LeBron James acknowledged that it didnt look good for the Cavaliers on Tuesday night.As usual when his team is in trouble, he did something about it.James scored 35 points, making the tiebreaking 3-pointer with 48 seconds remaining, and Cleveland rallied to beat the Toronto Raptors 105-101 for its eighth straight victory.Toronto, which owns the best record in the Eastern Conference, went ahead midway through the first quarter, built the lead to 14 points late in the third and still led by 10 with about 8 minutes to play.I guess it was a little desperation, James said. You get down on your home floor 13, 14 points, you go out there and control what you can control. Thats how hard you play, how hard you defend. The defence got our offence going.James jumper from the top of the key gave Cleveland a 102-99 lead and tied him with Mark Price for the franchise record for 3-pointers at 802. James scored 10 points in the fourth, when Cleveland held Toronto to 13 points.That was a tough, hard victory, Cleveland coach David Blatt said.The Cavaliers havent lost since falling 110-93 to the Raptors at Quicken Loans Arena on Nov. 22, after which James said they were fragile. Cleveland got a measure of revenge with a 105-91 win in Toronto on Friday.The Raptors built a double-figure lead Tuesday, but couldnt hang on in the teams third matchup in 18 days.If you want to be an elite team, those are the plays you have to make at the end of the game, Toronto coach Dwane Casey said. We had some crucial turnovers and crucial rebounds we didnt get.Backup guard Matthew Dellavedova provided a boost for Cleveland in the final 12 minutes by hounding Kyle Lowry defensively. Torontos point guard scored 16 points, but only two in the fourth.Dellavedova, who missed 15 games with a knee injury, returned Monday against Brooklyn and played the entire final period against Toronto.Dellys a guy whos always been counted out, saying he cant make it, James said. Heart and effort will take away a lot of things you cant do. Ill take a guy like that any day on my team.Dion Waiters came off the bench for 18 points and Kevin Love added 17.Jonas Valanciunas and Terrence Ross each scored 18 for Toronto, which had won 39 straight games when leading after three quarters.Following Lowrys missed shot that hit the top of the backboard, James added a free throw with 14.2 seconds remaining for a four-point lead. Ross dunk on an offensive rebound with 4.2 seconds left made it 103-101, but Kyrie Irvings two free throws with 3.8 seconds left sealed the win.TIP-INSRaptors: G Greivis Vasquez (flu) was limited to three minutes in the second half after falling ill. .

Jackie Bradley Jr. hit a two-run single during Bostons four-run seventh inning, and the Red Sox beat the Atlanta Braves 6-3 on Tuesday night in their latest comeback following their longest losing streak in 20 years. Dustin Pedroia had three hits and Grady Sizemore went 2 for 5 with a go-ahead groundout in the seventh. The Red Sox snapped their 10-game losing streak on Monday, overcoming a five-run deficit to top Atlanta 8-6. Now they have a winning streak and a feeling that its their turn for some good breaks as they prepare to play two games against the Braves in Boston. "Its good for our self-esteem," said Jonny Gomes, who singled and scored on Bradleys hit in the seventh, and then had a highlight-worthy catch in right field in the eighth. Jon Lester (5-6) snapped a personal two-game losing streak by giving up three runs and eight hits in six innings. "To come here ... with that streak and end up getting two (wins) here is really big," Lester said. Koji Uehara worked the ninth for his 11th save. "More than anything, our guys are having fun playing the game," Boston manager John Farrell said. "It was a tough 10-game stretch we came through but theres been plenty of energy kind of injected back in the dugout." Farrell said bloop hits by Gomes and David Ortiz in the seventh were good signs that luck has changed for the Red Sox. "It was good to see maybe the worm turn a little bit with runners in scoring position," Farrell said. Braves starter Aaron Harang left with a 3-2 lead after the sixth. Anthony Varvaro (1-1) took the loss. Jason Heyward hit a first-inning homer and Chris Johnson drove in two runs for Atlanta. The Braves had two injury scares. Catcher Evan Gattis was a late scratch after straining his right wrist in batting practice. He sat on the bench with a brace. Shortstop Andrelton Simmons left in the eighth with inflammation in his rigght ankle.dddddddddddd "We dont see anything that is long-term," manager Fredi Gonzalez said of Simmons and Gattis. Simmons said the pain was "just a nagging thing. So hopefully it stops nagging." Harang gave up seven hits before Boston tagged the Braves bullpen in the seventh. Varvaro gave up one-out singles to Xander Bogaerts and Dustin Pedroia before left-hander Luis Avilan was summoned to face Ortiz. Ortiz, batting .283 against left-handers and .263 versus right-handers, hit an RBI single that made it 3-all. A day earlier, he homered and drove in four runs at Turner Field. He drew loud boos in the eighth when he grounded out and then broke his bat over his knee. After Ortiz tied it, Gomes blooper to right field loaded the bases. Sizemores broken-bat groundout drove in Pedroia for a 4-3 lead. After an intentional walk to David Ross, Bradley singled. The rally made a winner of Lester, who agreed with Farrells description of his outing as a "grind." "I made some decent pitches when I had to and minimized damage when I had to," Lester said. The Braves loaded the bases in the second but didnt score. Harang hit into a double play, and Heywards grounder to Pedroia ended the inning. Sizemore doubled with one out in the fourth and stole third. Gonzalez challenged the call, but a replay review showed Sizemore was safe. Ross hit a single that made it 2-all. Freddie Freemans first triple of the year set up the Braves go-ahead run in the fifth. Justin Upton walked and Johnson hit a blooper that fell in right, turning into a run-scoring forceout at second. Gomes delivered the defensive highlight of the game with his diving catch on Gerald Lairds sinking liner in the eighth. NOTES: Heywards homer was the first allowed by Lester to a left-handed hitter in 180 at-bats, including post-season games, since July 18, 2013. ...
