Collin Sexton, Andre Drummond pace Cleveland Cavaliers' rally in win over Atlanta Hawks

Sexton's 3-point basket with 27 seconds left gave the Cavs the lead for good.

ATLANTA — Collin Sexton scored 27 points, Andre Drummond had 12 points and 11 rebounds and the Cleveland Cavaliers wiped out a 15-point deficit in the third quarter and beat the Atlanta Hawks 96-91. 

JaVale McGee, who finished with 14 points, scooped in a runner to help the Cavs reclaim the lead at 84-83, and Sexton made it a three-point lead with a 17-footer on the next possession. 

Clint Capela had 16 points and 16 rebounds for the Hawks, who tied it at 88-all on Bogdan Bogdanovic’s 3, but Sexton hit a 3 to put the Cavs up 91-88 with 27.2 seconds remaining.

Drummond's double-double in Atlanta was his sixth in a row to start the season, breaking a team record shared by Mark Price, Brad Daugherty, and Kevin Love.
