Bass' block saves Celtics in 103-100 win over Cavs

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) - Jeff Green and Jordan Crawford each scored 19 points, Brandon Bass added 15 points and had a game-saving blocked shot in the closing seconds Saturday, and the Boston Celtics held on for a 103-100 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Cavaliers were playing soon after suspending center Andrew Bynum indefinitely for "conduct detrimental to the team" and banning him from all team-related activities. Bynum, who signed a two-year, $24 million contract with the Cavaliers in July, did not travel with the team to Boston and it's likely he has played his final game for Cleveland.

Avery Bradley added 18 points and eight rebounds for Boston, which snapped a three-game losing streak. Bass also had eight boards.

Kyrie Irving led the Cavaliers with 32 points, the eighth time in his last 10 games he's scored 20 or more. Dion Waiters scored 17 and Jarrett Jack 14 for Cleveland, which lost its fourth straight.
