NBA-Heat overcome battling Cavaliers to remain unbeaten at home

Nov 24 (Reuters) - The NBA champion Miami Heat have staged a thrilling fightback to keep their unblemished home record alive, beating the Cleveland Cavaliers 110-108 on Saturday.

The Heat, down by 11 at halftime and by seven with just under two minutes remaining, stormed home thanks mainly to Ray Allen who scored the last seven points to push the Heat to 10-3 on the season and 6-0 in Miami.

Allen coaxed in a lay up and drew a foul with 1:32 remaining for a three-point play and then gave the Heat the lead with 18 seconds left with a three-pointer.

LeBron James top scored for the Heat against his former team with 30 points while Chris Bosh added 23 and Dwyane Wade 18.

The Cavaliers had eight players in double figures but the impressive team performance still was not enough, dropping them to 3-10.
