CLEVELAND — Dennis Schroder scored a career-high 28 points Tuesday night and the Atlanta Hawks handed the Cleveland Cavaliers their first loss of the season, 110-106.

Cleveland (6-1) cut a 96-81 deficit early in the fourth quarter to 101-97 on LeBron James’ basket with 3:14 to play. The Hawks scored the next six points, but 3-pointers by James and Kyrie Irving made it 106-103 with 48 seconds left.

Paul Milsap’s basket pushed the lead to five, but Kevin Love converted a three-point play with 25 seconds remaining. Bazemore’s jumper from the corner with seven seconds left put the game away.

Bazemore scored 25 points while Millsap added 21. Dwight Howard, who received four stitches for a bloody lip in the first half, had 17 rebounds.

Irving led Cleveland with 29 points. Love added 24 while James, who scored two points in the first half, had 23.

NETS 119, TIMBERWOLVES 110: Brook Lopez scored 26 points, and Brooklyn kept Minnesota winless on the road.

The Nets shot 55.3 percent from the field and had eight players with at least nine points, a surprisingly easy offensive performance against a young Wolves team that clearly hasn’t yet grasped Coach Tom Thibodeau’s defensive schemes.

Trevor Booker added 15 points and Sean Kilpatrick had 14 for the Nets.

NOTES

PACERS: Forward Paul George was fined $15,000 for inadvertently kicking the ball into the stands during a victory against Chicago.

George appeared to be upset Saturday night when no foul was called after he took a shot. He kicked the ball after drawing a foul on the Bulls’ ensuing possession.

The ball went into the stands with 1:42 left in the third quarter. The officials called a technical foul and immediately ejected George.
