CLEVELAND (AP) – LeBron James scored 26 points, Kevin Love added 24 and the Cleveland Cavaliers stayed drama-free during a 113-104 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night.

Kyrie Irving celebrated his 24th birthday by flirting with a triple-double and Tristan Thompson added 13 points and 10 rebounds for Cleveland, which maintained its grip on the top seed in the Eastern Conference.

However, the Cavs didn’t put the Bucks away until the final minute, when J.R. Smith’s 3-pointer with 20 seconds left put Cleveland ahead 111-102.

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 24 and Jerryd Bayless 15 to lead the Bucks, who lost for the fourth time in five games.
