Miami Heat (35-31) vs. Cleveland Cavaliers (41-26) tonight in a star-studded matchup. The Heat have won two in a row and are seventh in the Eastern Conference standings, while the Cavs have also won two consecutive matches and are fourth in the Eastern Conference.
The addition of Donovan Mitchell this year has the Cavs in contention to make it to the playoffs. Cleveland has been solid all year and has gelled as a team. Miami, on the other hand, has been inconsistent, and its record is evidence of that. The Heat is not living up to the preseason hype, considering this is the same Heat team that made it to the Eastern Conference Finals last year.
Can Miami bounce back and finish strong, or will Donovan Mitchell and the Cavs continue to roll?

This will be a good game, but I don’t see it being a blowout. Honestly, I don’t think the Cavs get the love they deserve. They are a well-balanced team and know how to win games. For the Heat, it comes down to which version shows up. Will the Heat that went to the Conference Finals last year show up, or will it be the mediocre team we have seen most of the year? I like Cleveland tonight.
Miami is averaging 108.5 ppg this year, while the Cavs are averaging 112.1 ppg. I think Cleveland is playing better ball, and despite the game being in Miami, Donovan Mitchell will be the difference-maker. For more NBA News, CLICK HERE.
