Donovan Mitchell scored 29 points, leading the Cleveland Cavaliers (27-53) to a 110-98 victory against the injury-plagued Memphis Grizzlies (47-33) on Wednesday night.

The win brings the Cavaliers within touching distance of securing a playoff spot, sitting fourth in the Eastern Conference standings.

A victory over the Indiana Pacers on Friday or a win against the Charlotte Hornets on Sunday would seal their playoff berth.

Darius Garland chipped in with 16 points and nine assists, while Evan Mobley posted a double-double with 12 points, 12 rebounds, and four blocked shots for the Cavaliers. Despite a recent slide, losing 11 of their last 17 games, Cleveland remains in a strong playoff position.

Memphis, plagued by injuries, fielded a depleted roster, with key players like Ja Morant and Desmond Bane sidelined. Despite the adversity, Jake LaRavia impressed with a career-high 32 points, backed by eight made 3-pointers, while rookie GG Jackson II added 22 points.

The Grizzlies’ injury woes continued, with their top scorers sidelined alongside a slew of other players. Despite the challenges, they managed to keep the game competitive, holding a halftime lead fueled by LaRavia’s sharpshooting.

Cleveland seized control in the third quarter, with Mitchell and Allen spearheading a decisive run that put them ahead for good.
