Gee's putback lifts Cavs over Hawks

Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - Alonzo Gee scored on a putback of Dion Waiters' missed 3-pointer with three-tenths of a second remaining to give the Cleveland Cavaliers a 113-111 victory over the Atlanta Hawks.

The rookie Waiters misfired from the top of the key, but Gee got position underneath the basket and muscled in a layup to snap the Cavaliers' road losing streak at eight games. They also posted their first win over the Hawks since April 2, 2010, ending a seven-game skid.

Jeremy Pargo was one of three Cleveland starters to score 20-plus points, finishing with 22 on 9-of-13 shooting. Waiters registered 14 of his 21 points in the second quarter, while Anderson Varejao posted a double-double of 20 points and 18 rebounds.

Josh Smith led six Atlanta players in double figures with a game-high 25 points. Reserve Lou Williams supplied 18, including a critical 3-pointer off an inbounds pass that tied the game at 111-111 with 13.6 seconds left.

Al Horford had 15 points, 11 boards and five assists for the Hawks, who had won six straight.
