Cleveland Cavaliers dominate Miami Heat for ninth straight win

Cleveland Cavaliers dominate Miami Heat for ninth straight win

Cavaliers Head Coach Tyronn Lue said Shumpert wanted to test out his sore right knee on the first night of a back-to-back, but did not feel right in Philly. He had to purge his gear between stops.

Cleveland will play their next game on the road against the Atlanta Hawks this Thursday, while Miami will cap off their back to back in the Big Apple tomorrow night against the New York Knicks. "I mean, the fact that he came out and played, I mean, I can't begin to understand what he's going through".

The second half was full of runs by the Miami Heat led by their starters, Dione Waiters, Goran Dragic and Haasan Whiteside but they never quite got to trim the lead to 20 points despite Lebron James getting his first ever career game ejection against his former team, who he had two National Basketball Association titles with, by the end of the third quarter. Love's ignition made that nostalgia pretty irrelevant. He shot 6-of-9 from the field and 7-of-8 from the line in the period, conjuring memories of his NBA-record 34 points in the first quarter of a win on November 23, 2016 here against Portland.

Despite finishing the game with yet another double-double (11 points and 14 rebounds), Hassan Whiteside failed to make the impact that the Heat have often enjoyed this season. Cleveland managed to score 40 points during the period, connecting on five 3-pointers.

The 27-year-old is averaging 4.8 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game over 13 games this season.

Three other Cavaliers finished scoring in double figures, led by Dwyane Wade's 17 points and five rebounds. But only once in 1,082 career regular-season games has he been ejected.

Love continued his reign leading into the second quarter, where he added another 10 points to his stat line to push his game-high total to 32 in the first half.

Cleveland jumped out of the gates with a huge first quarter, outscoring Miami 35-24. Wade led the Cavs bench with 17 points but none were as important as the six points he scored early in the final frame to help his team solidify its ninth win in a row. Former Cav Dion Waiters paced Miami with 21 points.

"One of our best players is out", Porter said.

"All my teammates provide energy to me and I just go out there and do the best I can", Adebayo said of his career-high 19-point performance.

-Would like to see him get more playing time. It's like going into the weight room: The first time you do it, it's uncomfortable being in that environment. "More importantly, after a loss or when it gets tough, it gets a little bit uncomfortable, you build that muscle".
