VIDEO: Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Miami Heat Highlights


The Cleveland Cavaliers fell behind the Miami Heat early last night. LeBron James was predictably amazing in the first period – scoring 25 points. James finished with 43 on the night despite taking only three shots in the second half and Heat ultimately won by a final score of 100-96. As the final score indicates, the Cavaliers did indeed battle back. Jarrett Jack was particularly solid, finishing with 22 points. But Dion Waiters – starting in place of the injured Kyrie Irving – was perhaps the best Cavalier on the floor against Miami. Waiters finished with 17 points and 11 assists for his first career double-double. These tweets from Tom Withers of the Associated Press and Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal sum it pretty nicely:
