No LeBron James in the regular season finale, but no problem. The Cavaliers watched their bench rally the troops, as Iman Shumpert and Matthew Dellavedova each threw down 18 points, and Tristan Thompson added 12, in a second-half rally that overtook the Washington Wizards on Wednesday, 113-108 in overtime at Quicken Loans Arena.

The rest of the Cavs starters did play, including Kyrie Irving, who left Monday's win over the Pistons with a hip injury but returned on Wednesday and scored 9 points in 18 minutes before calling it a night.

Kevin Love also put in 18 minutes, scoring a game-high 19 before shutting it down.

The Cavaliers finish with a record of 53-29, and now look ahead to Round One of the playoffs against the Boston Celtics, with Game One set for Sunday at the "Q".
