The red hot Cleveland Cavaliers travel to Miami to take on the Heat tonight. The Cavs coming off a red hot win over the World Champion Dallas Mavericks are playing great team basketball. Tonight the Cavaliers face the talented trio LeBron James Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. The last time the Cavaliers played the Heat they lost 92-85. The Cavaliers played well, they just couldn’t close late in the game and the Heat took over in the fourth period.
This time things could be different. Guys like Anderson Varejao, Kyrie Irving and Alonzo Gee have stepped it up and are playing harder from the start as we witnessed against the Mavericks. The Cavaliers team defense came out in the first period of play and shut down the Mavericks on their first six attempts. The Cavaliers are going to have to play hard tonight in Miami and they have to keep playing hard for 48 minutes.
Coach Byron Scott has done an excellent job with his young team so far this season. Scott and his Cavaliers have had a couple of days to get ready for the Heat tonight. I for one think the Cleveland Cavaliers can beat the Heat tonight. It is going to take a total team effort and this Cavaliers team is very capable of playing as a team.
