INDIANAPOLIS, Nov. 7 (UPI) -- Ron Artest converted the go-ahead, three-point play with 11.1 seconds left Friday night, giving Indiana a 91-90 victory over Cleveland.

LeBron James and two Cleveland teammates missed shots in the waning seconds.

Cleveland was in position to win for the first time in five games this season and snap a 24-game road losing streak. Clinging to a 90-88 lead, the Cavaliers gave up a layup in the lane to Artest, who was fouled by Ricky Davis.

Artest made the free throw and, after a timeout, James missed a layup with seven seconds to go. But the ball went out of bounds off a Pacer. DeSagana Diop missed a short jumper off the inbounds pass and Davis got off a weak put-back attempt as time expired.

James had 23 points but made just eight of 18 shots and committed seven turnovers.
