CLEVELAND — Ramon Sessions scored a season-high 24 points as a last-minute replacement for injured rookie Kyrie Irving and Antawn Jamison scored 27, leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 99-92 win over the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night.

Sessions didn’t know he was starting until moments before the game when the Cavs diagnosed Irving with a concussion. Sessions added 13 assists in his first start this season.

Daniel Gibson scored 17 points in his return for Cleveland after missing five games with a neck infection.

Blake Griffin scored 25 before fouling out with 6.6 seconds left for the Clippers, who tied it at 87 with 2:10 left after trailing by 15 in the third quarter. But Gibson made a 3-pointer and Anderson Varejao dropped a key jumper with 29 seconds left as Cleveland hung on.

Chris Paul had 16 points and 12 assists for Los Angeles, playing its first game without injured guard Chauncey Billups.
