CLEVELAND (AP) Jeff Teague scored a career-high 34 points, including a 20-foot jumper at the buzzer in the second overtime, to give the Atlanta Hawks a 127-125 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday night.

Teague's fallaway jumper over Tristan Thompson bounced off the rim five times before falling through the net to give Atlanta the victory. Teague fell to the floor after shooting the ball and was mobbed by his teammates.

Teague's 3-pointer with 4.9 seconds left tied the game at 108-all in the first overtime.

Kyrie Irving led Cleveland with 40 points, including 12 in the second OT.

Hawks center Al Horford, who scored two baskets late in regulation to tie the game, suffered an apparent shoulder injury in the first OT and didn't return.
