ATLANTA (AP) - Alonzo Gee scored on a putback with less than 1 second remaining, lifting the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 113-111 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Friday night that snapped a 4-game losing streak.

Gee rebounded a missed 3-pointer by Dion Waiters and quickly followed up with the winning shot. The Hawks, out of timeouts, couldn't manage a shot before time expired.

Jeremy Pargo led Cleveland with 22 points, including three straight baskets late in the game. Waiters scored 21 and Anderson Varejao had 20 points and 18 rebounds for Cleveland, which earned its second road win in 11 tries.

Josh Smith had 25 points for Atlanta, which had won six in a row. Al Horford had 15 points and 11 rebounds.
