CLEVELAND — LeBron James returned to Quicken Loans Arena and led the Miami Heat to a 95-84 victory over his old team, the Cleveland Cavaliers.

James poured in a quiet 28 points while dishing out 8 assists and pulling down 8 rebounds. He was 9 of 19 from the field, but was 9 of 11 from the free throw line. James and the Heat saw Cleveland come out strong in the 1st quarter, taking a 28-22 lead as Dion Waiters was leading the way in scoring.

Miami got busy in the middle two quarters to take control. Cleveland was held to 32 total points in quarters 2 and 3 while Miami took a 70-60 lead after three quarters.

The Cavs defense allowed Miami to shoot 48 percent on the night while the Wine and Gold offense suffered due to a frigid 34 percent shooting.

James got scoring help from his sidekick, Dwyane Wade, who canned 22 points on 10 of 14 shooting. Michael Beasley was the super sub, ripping the cords for 17 points.

Kyrie Irving chipped in with 16 points for the Cavs, but was only 6 of 19 from the field. Earl Clark had 13 points and Anderson Varejao chipped in with 10.

The Cavs are in Boston on Friday night to take on the Celtics.

    Wish you guys would stop acting like it’d be great for the traitor Lebron to come back to Cleveland. You should be announcing how wrong it is for those guys to try and bring him back after he shafted the cavs originally. I’ve had to stop watching your channel for a bit, knowing you guys support the loser coming back. He needs way too much help to win a championship to be of any use anyway. Cleveland isn’t going to sign 2 other giant superstars to help him like Miami did.
