For the second straight game, the Cleveland Cavaliers won in a runaway on the road. This time, they blew out the Miami Heat, 111-85.
Early on, the Cavs looked ready to run Miami out of their own gym. Down Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo, the Heat came out flat in front of a lifeless arena, and the Cavs went into the second up 15 after a 19-2 run. In the third quarter, PJ Tucker quickly drained a pair of corner threes to trim the Heat deficit to 10, Evan Mobley scored 12 in the period including the Cavs’ first 10 points, and the Cavs pulled themselves together to push the lead to 24.
The win extends the Cavs’ win streak to three.
