The Cleveland Cavaliers were once again set to face off against LeBron James and the Miami Heat, but this time the Cavs would travel to Miami to try to takedown their former super star. The Cavs paced with the head early in the game, trailing by just three after the first quarter and then by just six points at halftime. In the third period the Cavs held tight and found themselves still within six points as the game entered the fourth quarter, but that's when it went south.

The Heat outscored the Cavs in the fourth quarter 29-19 as they pulled away for the victory. LeBron James picked up 24 points while Dwayne Wade added another 26 points. For the Cavs, Kyrie Irving had another good night picking up 16 points with 6 rebounds and 6 assists, while Antawn Jamison led the Cavs in scoring with 25 points and 9 rebounds.
