  • Miami Heat vs. Cleveland Cavaliers- 4/10/17 NBA Pick Odds and Prediction

The Heat could make it even with a loss in this game, but the road becomes very treacherous at that point.

"I heard about it", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said before the Cavs played the Miami Heat on Monday.

The NBA disagreed with LeBron James' assertion that his sixth foul was called incorrectly in the Cleveland Cavaliers' 126-125 overtime loss at Atlanta on Sunday night.

Tyler Johnson had 24 points and Hassan Whiteside added 23 points and 18 rebounds to help Miami snap a three-game home losing streak. Josh Richardson scored 19 points while James Johnson had 16 and Goran Dragic added 15.

The final two games come against Charlotte, a team Atlanta has yet to defeat in three opportunities this season, and in, a squad still looking to clinch a playoff berth.

For the Cavs, point guard Deron Williams got the start in place of Irving and lit up the scoreboard for a game-high 35 points, nine assists, and seven rebounds but had a cringeworthy 10 turnovers on offense. In his last 10 games, he's averaging 10 and 4 while shooting 48%.

"We just want the playoffs to come".

Wenger: 'Inconvenient' to talk about future
Wenger, 67, is reported to have been offered a two-year contract extension by Arsenal but has yet to reveal what he intends to do. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger avoided questions about his future after his side's loss to Crystal Palace in the Premier League .

It's probably the end of regular season annoyance still, but some of their recent games have been an adventure in regards to the last few possessions. He's a good player that is long, athletic, defends, handles the ball well and shoots it better and better with consistent minutes.

"It was tough on me, but it's part of the game. If they can't give us the game back, it doesn't matter".

Perhaps the number one thing that can bring down the Cavaliers is something out of everyone's reach.

"We moved the ball well and guys came ready to play", Love said. Keeping the pressure on the Heat, the Cavs were able to boost the lead into double-digits for much of the third quarter and took a 91-80 lead into the final period. "We're the No. 1 seed right now, and it's our job to take care of business tomorrow".

The Heat (40-41) will need to win their regular-season finale on Wednesday against the visiting Washington Wizards to have any hope of making the playoffs.

The Cavs were also without Kyrie Irving and Tristan Thompson, and fell a game behind Boston in the race for the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference. It could be argued that the low win total is a result of parity in the Eastern Conference and a swelling middle class that the East hasn't seen in years. This is another positive development for the C's, as the scariest opponents for Boston (Milwaukee, Atlanta) are now all but locked into the No. 5-6 seeds (the Hawks could slide to the 7-seed if they lose both of their games and the Bucks beat the Celtics, which would set up that terrifying Boston-Atlanta first round series).
