LeBron James dropped 43 points against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday night to lead the Miami Heat to a close 100-96 win over his former team.
After a 37-25 first quarter it looks like the Heat will easily win-- and cover the 9.5 spread as favourites. However, the Cavs, which were playing without star point guard Kyrie Irving, made a game out of it after dominating the middle quarters—29-22 in the second and 25-20 in the third.
The game was tied entering the payoff period but Miami—specifically, LeBron— took over when it mattered the most.
