CLEVELAND, Dec. 2 (UPI) -- Nicolas Batum connected on a 3-pointer with 0.2 seconds remaining in the second overtime Saturday, boosting Portland over Cleveland 118-117.

With the Trail Blazers down by two points and time running out, Damian Lillard found Batum in the near corner and he used a single-motion catch-and-shoot to drain the decisive trey.

Cleveland got 19 points and 17 rebounds from Anderson Varejao in its 11th loss in 13 games.

Dion Waiters injured an ankle in the second overtime after recording 12 points with seven assists for the Cavs.
