Cavaliers: LeBron James to miss fifth straight regular-season finale

  • Cleveland Cavaliers waive DeAndre Liggins and create roster space

Their longest win streak of the season was a measly six, when they started 6-0, while they had five separate three-game losing streaks, which suggests that the whole, "they might be vulnerable, but how are they going to lose four times in seven games?" argument might be misguided.

The Heat now lead the season series against the Cavaliers 2-1 and have won a franchise-record 12 straight games against them at home. "No matter what happened with those game if we didn't win our game". The last game against the Miami Heat was not a big deal, though, because they were without Bron, Kyrie Irving, and Tristan Thompson.

"I thought we'd be playing a little bit better, a lot better actually than we're playing, and things would jell, but there's been a lot of variables", Williams said.

The Cleveland Cavaliers will rest their starters in an important game against the Miami Heat on Monday. Kevin Love added 25 points and 10 rebounds before fouling out with 34 seconds left in overtime.

According to Cleveland.com, the team waived the guard on Sunday afternoon.

If he is signed and completes his physical in time, the 36-year-old could see some action in the Toronto game, which will mark the Cavs' 15th annual Fan Appreciation Night, during which more than $1 million in prizes will be given away.

All Atlanta needs is an opportunity, a fact it proved with an exceptional fourth quarter and overtime performance against the defending champions Sunday afternoon.

MIAMI (AP) - For the Miami Heat, the season is going down to the final night. "But I think it makes it that much more special knowing everybody was kicking dirt on us two months ago".

As the Cleveland Cavaliers make final preparations for their title defense, Cleveland will add backup guard Dahntay Jones to the roster, according to National Basketball Association reporter Chris Haynes of ESPN. He hasn't appeared in a regular-season finale since 2007. G Kay Felder (left lower leg) left the game in the third quarter.

Miami could also receive a huge lift with the return of Dion Waiters in this game.

The league, in its "Last Two Minute Report" released Monday, upheld the referees' decision, saying James pushed Paul Millsap in the back when the Hawks forward was airborne with 1:52 remaining in overtime, while also finding three officiating errors that went against Cleveland.

None of it would have mattered if Miami didn't rally for the win. It's too late now.

"I thought the effort was great", said Lue.

"I remember after the Knicks game I went upstairs and I probably shot 200, 300 free throws after the game just because I didn't want to feel that feeling again", said Johnson, who missed three free throws in the Heat's crippling 98-94 loss to the Knicks at home two weeks ago.
