ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Kyrie Irving scored 31 points, Dion Waiters added 21, and the Cleveland Cavaliers used a big second half to earn just their second road victory of the season, 109-100 over the Orlando Magic on Friday night.

Waiters had 20 points in the second half and Cleveland outmuscled the Magic 36-30 in the paint.

Cleveland has won three straight and five out of six. It was the Cavaliers' first road win since Nov. 16.

Orlando tried different combinations to try and contain Irving, but nothing worked as it blew a 14-point, first-half lead. The Magic have lost seven of their last eight.

Victor Oladipo tied a career high with 26 points. Arron Afflalo and Jameer Nelson each added 17, but Orlando shot just 43 percent from the field.
