Free NBA Pick Cleveland Cavaliers vs Miami Heat

The Cleveland Cavaliers actually managed to win another game again yesterday against the Washington Wizards with a score of 113-108. Cedi Osman, Andre Drummond, and Tristan Thompson were each able to earn a double-double on the night, with Osman earning 16 points and 10 rebounds, Drummond earning 12 points and rebounds, and Thompson earning 11 rebounds and 10 points. But honestly, they were lucky the Wizards only made 38.7% of their shots.

The Miami Heat ended up blowing their lead against the Atlanta Hawks in the 4th quarter on Thursday, losing the game 124-129. Bam Adebayo almost had a triple-double on the night, but finished the night with a double-double, earning 28 points, 19 rebounds, and 7 assists. Jimmy Butler also came close to a triple-double but only had 17 points, 9 assists, and 8 rebounds. Although only one player ended up shooting above 45% on the night however, making the team shot percentage on the night a pitiful 40.8%.

The Cleveland Cavaliers miss LeBron James

Oh, how the days of Lebron in Cleveland have long since passed. After the king left, it was all downhill for Cleveland. The Cavs are ranked in the bottom 10 for every category except for one, and that’s only because they are 20th in rebounds. They have the worst record in the Eastern Conference, the worst home record in the NBA, and have a brand-new coach in the middle of the year. Cleveland making the NBA Finals 4 seasons in a row seems like a distant memory now.

The Miami Heat also miss LeBron James, but not as much as the Cavs

Speaking of teams making the NBA Finals 4 seasons in a row, the Heat did just that when LeBron formed the Big Three (LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh). Granted, the Heat aren’t hurting as bad as the Cavs are, as they are actually a solid team, ranking 8th in field goal percentage, 3rd in 3-pointer percentage, and 11th in assists this season. However, they are long past their days of dominating the NBA. The points is that even though both teams use to dominate the NBA with LeBron’s help, only one of them is actually any good these days.

NBA Free Pick Heat vs Cavs

When Andre Drummond said that the Cavs were worse off than the Pistons after the trade, it shows just how terrible the Cavs are. The only reason why the Cavs have won their last two games is because they faced the Hawks and the Wizards. There is no chance that the Cavs beat the Heat today. Even if the Heat rested their starting 5, they would still win. If the Heat doesn’t win by at least 20 today, it will be a moral victory for the Cavs.
