The Cleveland Cavaliers tightened up their defense, but not quite enough to hold down old friend LeBron James and the Miami Heat, as the Cavaliers fell 92-85 at AmericanAirlines Arena on Tuesday night.
It was Chris Bosh, not James, who proved to be the toughest cover for Cleveland, as the power forward scored 35 points on 10-16 shooting. Meanwhile, James added 18 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists, and turned the ball over 5 times.
With the loss, the Cavaliers (6-10) still have yet to beat a team that currently boasts a winning record.
The Cavaliers will return home to try to snap the four-game losing streak when they host the New York Knicks (7-10) on Wednesday night in a game scheduled to start at 7:00 p.m. eastern. The Knicks had also been struggling of late, but they snapped out of it with a 111-78 win over the Charlotte Bobcats on Tuesday night.
