Damon Jones' only field-goal attempt, a baseline jumper with 4.8 seconds left in overtime, gave the Cavaliers a 114-113 win and a 4-2 series victory over the Wizards on Friday. Fellow reserves Flip Murray and Donyell Marshall were instrumental in getting the game to the extra period, scoring 11 points apiece in the fourth quarter to help Cleveland build a three-point lead in the final seconds. Gilbert Arenas nailed a long 3-pointer with 2.3 ticks left in regulation to force OT and finished with 36 points and 11 assists, but missed a pair of free throws just prior to Jones' heroics. LeBron James tallied 32 points, seven rebounds and seven assists, Marshall scored 28 and Murray 21 for the Cavs, while Antonio Daniels had 22 points and Caron Butler added 18 with a career-high 20 boards for Washington. Cleveland's second-round series will start in Detroit on Sunday (3:30 ET, ABC).
