LBJ returns to Cleveland!…But nobody cares as the Heat go for their 24th straight win.  Uh, and in case anybody wants to know, Cleveland’s record is 22-45, which means that the Heat have won more games in a row than the Cavs have won all season.  In addition to Kyrie Irving being out due to injury, Dion Waiters is out for tonight’s game too.  That means the Cavs are relying on (I kid you not) Shaun Livingston, Wayne Ellington, C.J. Miles, and Daniel Gibson in the backcourt.

Probable Starting Lineups:

Heat

PG – Chalmers

SG – Wade

SF – LeBron

PF – Haslem

C – Bosh

Cavs

PG – Livingston

SG – Ellingston

SF – Gee

PF – Thompson

C – Zeller

According to NBA Stats, against the Cavs, the Heat are shooting 60.4% from the restricted area, 41.2% from mid-range, 68.8% from the corner three point area (68.8%!!!!) and 45.5% from all other three point areas.  I think that basically sums it up.

Fast Break Points:

  • Happy Birthday Pat Riley!
  • From this morning’s shoot-around:

    I bet the Heat could still win with Spo playing PG.

  • In case you’ve been on Mars for the past couple of days….also, I’m still not over this.  Legend….wait for it….dary!

    Did I mention that I’m still not over this?
