CLEVELAND ― The Cavaliers faced one of the greatest players to ever don their uniform Tuesday night as Kyrie Irving and the Dallas Mavericks invaded Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse.

But for a stretch late in the fourth quarter, Cavs small forward Max Strus was the greatest in the clutch.

Strus capped a wild finish by making a buzzer-beating 3-pointer from beyond half court to lift the Cavs to a dramatic 121-119 victory.

To say Strus was on fire in crunch time would be an understatement. He went 5-for-5 shooting from 3-point range in the final 3:42 and finished with 21 points.
