CLEVELAND, March 6 (UPI) -- Wayne Ellington's two free throws gave Cleveland a three-point lead with 3 seconds to play Wednesday and the Cavaliers held on to down Utah 104-101.

Ellington put Cleveland in front by scoring on a dunk with 56.4 seconds remaining, helping boost the Cavaliers to their fifth win in eight games.

Ellington and Tristan Thompson both had 16 points and Thompson added 12 rebounds.

Utah was led by 25 points off the bench from Gordon Hayward.
