By TOM WITHERS AP Sports Writer

CLEVELAND (AP) — Donovan Mitchell scored 36 points and the Cleveland Cavaliers finally put together a complete game against Milwaukee, withstanding superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo's season-high 45-point performance to beat the Bucks 114-106 on Wednesday night.

Darius Garland added 23 points and Jarrett Allen had 19 for the Cavs, who lost their first two games against the Eastern Conference's top team this season — both times collapsing in the third quarter and losing by 15 in Milwaukee.

The Cavs improved the NBA's best home record to 16-2, matching their start in the 2016 championship season.
