CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) – Jarrett Allen had 24 points and 17 rebounds, and rookie Evan Mobley added 11 points and 11 rebounds for his fourth double-double as the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Portland Trail Blazers 107-104.

Damian Lillard missed a fadeaway 3-pointer from the left wing with two seconds left, and Mobley, the third overall pick in the draft, grabbed the rebound as time expired.

Cleveland has won four of its last six. Lillard had a game-high 26 points and eight assists, and shot 10 of 27 from the field as Portland lost its third straight.

The Trail Blazers are winless in four road games.
