The Cavaliers led at the half 57-52, thanks to a 7-2 run at the end of the second quarter. Gadzuric took charge in the third quarter, however, scoring 11 points and grabbing four rebounds to put the Bucks ahead 84-70 at the end of three.
On Saturday night, the Cavaliers cut guard-forward Nick Anderson and forward Howard Jamison to bring their roster down to the required 12 players needed by the NBA's final cut deadline on Monday.
