TORONTO (AP) - Kyrie Irving made a 3-pointer with 0.7 seconds left to give the Cleveland Cavaliers a 99-98 victory over the Toronto Raptors on Saturday night.

Headed to his first All-Star game, Irving added to his credentials by calmly draining a pull-up jumper from the top of the arc to send the Cavaliers to their third straight win.

Irving finished with 32 points and Marreese Speights had 17 for the Cavs. Tristan Thompson scored 14 and Wayne Ellington had 12.

Amir Johnson had 18 points and 12 rebounds for Toronto. Alan Anderson scored 17 and Ed Davis had 16 for the Raptors, who had won 7 of their previous nine meetings with the Cavaliers.

DeMar DeRozan scored 15 points and Jose Calderon had 10 for Toronto.
