MIAMI, Florida – The Cavaliers headed to Miami Saturday to take on LeBron James’ former team, the Heat. The Cavaliers were behind early on and couldn’t come back, losing 99-84.
James didn’t play, as he played over 40 minutes in Friday’s overtime loss to the New Orleans Pelicans.
The Cavs were obviously struggling without James as they trailed 60-42 at the half and 83-64 at the end of the third.
The fourth quarter didn’t go much better for the Cavs, who only scored 20 points.
The Cavs will be back at Quicken Loans Arena on Tuesday to take on the Portland Trailblazers.
