ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) The work is only beginning for the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Kyrie Irving scored 26 points and LeBron James had 18, including a layup and pair of free throws down the stretch to help the Cavs hold off the Orlando Magic 109-103 on Friday night and clinch a playoff spot.
“There’s nothing much to say,” coach Tyronn Lue said after the defending Eastern Conference champions improved the best record in the East to 49-19 with their fifth victory in six games.
“We thought we were going to make the playoffs, so it wasn’t really a big deal to clinch,” Lue added. “We have bigger things ahead of us. We have a bigger deal in front of us.”
Channing Frye came off the bench to make four 3-pointers and score 14 against his old team as the Cavs beat the Magic for the 14th consecutive time. A rested James returned to the lineup after taking off Wednesday’s home victory over Dallas and finished 6-of-15 shooting with eight assists and seven rebounds.
“This one’s definitely for him. He showed up and showed why he’s a valuable part of our team,” James said of 6-foot-11 Frye. “He has the ability to shoot the ball.”
Victor Oladipo had a career-high 45 points for Orlando, but only scored six in the fourth quarter. The last of his six 3-pointers trimmed Cleveland’s lead to 107-103 before James made two free throws to put it away.
“That team has been punking us. I wanted to set a tone that we aren’t here to get punked, we’re here to compete, and I think we did a good job of that,” said Oladipo, who was 16 of 22, including 6 of 7 on 3-pointers.
Cleveland’s defense tightened in the fourth quarter, and the third-year pro only got off three shots.
“I’m still upset about the fourth quarter. I can’t let them deny me the ball like that. I’ve got to demand the ball much more. That’s something I need to learn and get better at,” Oladipo said.
The Cavs led 63-54 at the half, using a 31-9 run to wipe out an 11-point deficit. Kevin Love delivered two 3-pointers and a dunk during an 11-0 burst that built Cleveland’s lead to double digits.
Oladipo scored 24 before halftime and 15 more in the third quarter, when the Magic opened with an 18-7 run to regain the lead and cling to an 86-83 edge going into the fourth.
