AN ESCAPE TO THE FLORIDA WARMTH

To start a three game road trip, the Cavs make a stop in Florida to take on the Miami Heat. Cleveland fell to the Heat right after the All-Star Break in Miami and Erik Spoelstra's squad has won three in a row.

LAST TIME OUT

A strong first half on Thursday was overshadowed by a second half in which the Cavs struggled against the 76ers, scoring just 38 points in the final two frames. Kevin Love and Matthew Dellavedova made their return to the rotation and impacted the game right away. Love hit his first three shots and finished with 13 first quarter points. Delly did not score but handed out five assists.
