MIAMI, FL (WOIO) - The Cavaliers certainly looked like a team that wanted to come home on Monday night. Tired, legless, worn down by playing 11 of their past 14 on the road. At the very least, they forgot to take their talents to South Beach, and it cost them, as the Miami Heat took advantage, delivering a 106-92 beatdown at American Airlines Arena.
Dwyane Wade led the way for the Heat, throwing down a game-high 32 points, but the Cavaliers didn't make it difficult, turning the ball over 14 times, and scoring a season-low 38 points in the first half.
LeBron James was held to only 7 points in the first half, but finished with 26 overall. Kyrie Irving added 21.
The Cavaliers were playing without Kevin Love, who sat out for the second straight game to rest.
The Cavs (43-26) went 3-1 on the trip, with impressive wins Dallas, San Antonio and Orlando. They return home to host the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday.
