Cleveland, OH -- Nicolas Batum's go-ahead 3-pointer with 0.2 seconds left in double overtime lifted the Portland Trail Blazers to a 118-117 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Portland trailed, 117-115, with 2.5 left and following a timeout, Damian Lillard passed to Batum along the right corner and he turned, fired, and nailed the triple in front of the Cleveland bench.

The Cavs didn't get a shot off before time expired.

Lillard tallied 24 points and Batum added 22 for Portland, which snapped its four-game losing streak.

"It was much needed, that's an understatement," Blazers head coach Terry Stotts said of the victory.

Anderson Varejao had 19 points and 17 rebounds for Cleveland, which has dropped 11 of its last 13 contests.
