The Miami HEAT beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 95-84 Wednesday night at Quicken Loans Arena. The win is the HEAT's eighth straight overall and eighth straight over the Cavaliers. 

 

Impact Performance of the Night: LeBron James dominated the action Wednesday night, scoring 28 points and adding eight rebounds, eight assists and three steals. James got to the line at will, making nine of his eleven attempts. James was the driving force behind the HEAT offense for much of the night, but his defense in the second half was what helped turn the game around. In the third quarter James kicked the defense up a few notches, and the Cavaliers struggled to get anything going. When James plays like he did on both ends of the floor, Miami is really tough to beat.

 

The Deciding Run: After a basket by Earl Clark cut the HEAT lead to one at 34-33, Miami exploded on a 21-11 run. The run spanned 10 minutes over parts of two quarters. During the run, LeBron scored 13 straight points for the HEAT, helping them build a double digit lead. Over the second half, Cleveland was always kept at a distance, never truly threatening the HEAT lead. The outburst from the second to third quarter was just too much for the Cavaliers to handle.

 

Play of the Game: Miami has shared the ball well all season. Lineups with LeBron James off the floor have been better than they’ve ever been in Miami, and much of it can be attributed to a comfort level that the bench has developed. With just under eight minutes left in the action, the Ray Allen grabbed a rebound off an Earl Clark miss. When the HEAT got into the front court they worked the ball into Michael Beasley at the elbow. When defenders crowded him, he found Norris Cole cutting baseline, from the corner into the paint. This sucked defenders in again, creating a lane to the hoop for a cutter. Dwyane Wade took advantage, slicing down the lane. Cole found Wade for an easy layup. It wasn’t the flashiest play or the proverbial dagger, but it was a perfect representation of what Miami is capable on the offensive end.

 

Efficiency Rating: Offensive Efficiency: 99.0; Defensive Efficiency: 83.5

 

Trend to Watch: On Wednesday night, Miami outscored Cleveland 50-28 in the paint. It’s the second straight game that the HEAT dominated an opponent in the most efficient part of the court. Dwyane Wade was exceptional in the post, beating just about every defender that the Cavaliers threw at him. With the floor spaced, HEAT ball handlers were able to get all the way to the rim themselves, or dump it off to the big man crashing down after setting a pick. When all else failed, the HEAT cut hard to the basket and the ball found its way to the cutters. Miami put pressure on the Cleveland defense from all angles, never giving them the same look over and over. When the threes aren’t falling –and they weren’t against the Cavaliers—it’s nice to see the HEAT work to their other strengths.

 

The Takeaway: The win over the Cavaliers came with many positives. Dwyane Wade looked great, again. He was dynamic on the block, had his jumper falling and was a menace on the defensive end. Michael Beasley was also excellent in extended action. In his 27 minutes, Beasley scored 17 points, grabbed nine rebounds and dished out two assists. Offensively, he was in control all night, playing with great pace and getting to the rim and the charity stripe. His defense was active, and his presence caused a bunch of bad passes and turnovers. Overall, the HEAT defense was suffocating. After a slow start in the first quarter, Miami clamped down on the Cavaliers offense. They found a way to keep Kyrie Irving out of rhythm all night, which isn’t easy to do. It was a strong performance to open the two-game road trip.

 

Notes: Dwyane Wade finished with 22 points, four rebounds, three assists and two steals. Greg Oden and Shane Battier were inactive.

I think this "sickness" and "injuries" are just an excuses to sit out and rest our players. One by one. It's good for the team come playoff time.

D-Wade is slowly getting back to his form. Imagine him at 100%....scary, just scary!

 

And he definitely have a super-high basketball IQ. His off-ball cuts are splendid, no wonder why he gets many easy shots close to the rim.

In fact i dont really these graphics because it's all about the points, rebounds, assists

 

I mean how cant you praise for the second unit , they put us back in track, that's the turning point !

 

 

TURNING POINT: The Heat scored 12 straight points bridging the end of the first quarter and the start of the second, taking the lead for good at 32-28. Shooting guard Ray Allen had five points during the run, while point guard Norris Cole, power forward Chris Andersen, and Beasley made one basket apiece. "I do enjoy those stretches when I'm out there with Ray," Wade said. "He's obviously had a great career, and he's a guy who can come in and be the No. 1 option at any point."

so THANK YOU THE SECOND UNIT ! 

 

Of course Lebron scored 28 points got 8 rebounds and 8 assits but his +/- is 0

Wade had a +17 because he played very well with the second unit ! 

 

It's mainly because they had a terrible start and this season it happened very often so they always got outscored by the opponents starters then you got the second unit making the hard work but not praise in that review rofl ! 


On this Board, people are quoting me for existing !

D.wade has been great, his is getting in Rhythm and has pretty good games so far, his mid-range game driving to the rim looks first–rate…..Lebron is playing out of planet… his all-round game has been exceptional already this season...when both play like that we almost certain to be toughie for any opponents.

Good win, not great, but good. The offense was a little erratic at times,should've been a thirty point lead easily. I'm still awaiting BOSH's arrival. I know that he does a lot of intangibles, but I need to see more aggression on the glass. The BENCHMOB was once again vital in this win, they've been playing solid ball thus far. On to the next...TEAM HEAT since '88!

+/-

 

then again he has 3 steals. when he was out there he created that spark. just didn't came in at right times he did played well with 2nd unit as well. shows you how plus minus are sometimes consequential. last time he destroyed the league in that. i'm not worried about this stat.
