Game Summary

The Cleveland Cavaliers (3-9) continue their three-game road trip tonight as they head to South Beach to take on the Miami Heat (9-3) at 7:30 p.m.

The Wine and Gold will look to bounce back from last night's 108-104 loss to the Orlando Magic while the Heat are hoping to extend their winning streak to four games.

Wrap-Up – The names have changed, but it was a familiar story for the Cavaliers in Orlando – as the Magic shot 52 percent from beyond the arc to spoil a solid effort by the Wine and Gold, sending Cleveland to the 108-104 defeat. Neither team got more than four points apart in the fourth period, but the deciding factor down the stretch was Orlando’s J.J. Redick – who didn’t sink a single field goal in the fourth, but did manage to sink eight straight free throws in the final 22 seconds to seal the deal.

Good evening, Mr. and Mrs. America and all the ships at sea! It’s the Optimist again, bringing you the incoherent weekend ritual we like to call NEWS … AROUND … THE … LEAGUE from sunny Florida.

By the time some of you read this, the Cavaliers likely will have vanquished the Sunshine State’s two teams and be on their way to Tennessee. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
