Cavaliers Vs. Heat Final Score: Miami Hands Cleveland 24-Point Loss

The Cleveland Cavaliers had no answer for LeBron James and the Miami Heat on Friday night, falling behind 11-0 to start the game and never recovering. Miami ran away early and left the Q with a 111-87 rout.

LeBron James was the game's leading scorer with 28 points on 11-for-19 shooting. Dwyane Wade added 22 points on just 10 shots.

Rookie sensation Kyrie Irving, who returned on Wednesday night after suffering a concussion, finished as the Cavs' leading scorer with 17 points, but was just 5-for-15 shooting and only assisted two other baskets.

Cleveland shot 40-percent and allowed Miami to hit 14 of their 21 attempts from three-point range.

The Cavs, now 11-17, continue their five-game homestand on Sunday against Sacramento.

Cavaliers Vs. Heat Score Update: Miami Routing Cleveland At Half, 63-38

The Cleveland Cavaliers, coming off a nice win Wednesday night against the Indiana Pacers in Kyrie Irving's return from a concussion, are witnessing what they lost to Miami summer 2010 -- LeBron James domination.

James, who may or may not be trying to warm Cleveland to the possibility of his return in 2014, was a team-high plus-29 in the first half and had 12 points. Dwyane Wade had a cool 18 to supplement James on 6-for-8 shooting, and the Heat shot 56-percent as a team through the first 24 minutes. Miami is 8-for-12 from long distance.

Cleveland managed to get over 30-percent shooting late in the half to prevent a one-time 27-point deficit from becoming any worse. Irving is just 3-for-9 shooting and does not have a single assist. Ramon Sessions leads the Cavs in scoring with nine points off the bench.
