Photo Recap: Cavs win 110-107 over Mavs in OT

Kyrie Irving was headed toward Cleveland's locker room when he was greeted exuberantly by general manager David Griffin.

"You might stick in this league," Griffin told the fourth-year player from Duke.

Irving scored 22 points with some big 3-pointers, including one in overtime after LeBron James made the go-ahead layup, and the Cavaliers extended their winning streak to eight games with a 110-107 victory over the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday night.

James had 27 points, including a layup with a minute left in overtime that pushed the Cavs ahead 106-105. After an attempted 3 by Deron Williams rattled out for Dallas, Irving beat the shot clock with a 3-pointer from the top of the key after James passed up a shot and got the ball to Irving instead.

"It's just the confidence I have in him and he has the confidence in his self," James said.
