ORLANDO, Fla., Dec. 13 (UPI) -- Kyrie Irving helped fuel a fourth-quarter comeback and scored 31 points Friday in bringing Cleveland a 109-100 win over Orlando.

The Cavaliers have won three in a row for the first time this season and have captured five out of six.

Orlando had a three-point lead heading into the fourth quarter, but suffered through a scoring drought of almost three minutes in the period while the Cavaliers were rallying.

Irving made 12-of-24 from the field and Cleveland shot 48 percent as a team. Dion Waiters added 21 points for the Cavaliers.

Cleveland overcame a 26-point performance by Victor Oladipo, which equaled a career best.

The game ended on a sour note when Orlando's Andrew Nicholson knocked Cleveland's Anderson Varejao to the floor with 10 seconds to play. Waiters came to Varejao's assistance and a technical foul was called on Nicholson. He was also kicked out of the game, which could lead to a fine and suspension.
