Heat Vs. Cavaliers: LeBron James Stunning Cleveland, Miami Up 95-65 After Three

I feel like I'm starting to get redundant. Like, I feel like I'm saying the same thing over and over again. LeBron James is a phenomenal basketball player, we know this. In the third quarter, James scored 24 of his 38 points. The question becomes... why was he still on the floor? At the end of the quarter, the Heat are up 30 points. It seems cruel at this point.

There isn't much to say about the Cavaliers' game. Mo Williams and Daniel Gibson are the only two players in double digits, and they just barely make the cut. They only have 23 total rebounds, as compared to Miami's 36. And worst of all, they have 12 turnovers. With some teams, that's not an insurmountable obstacle. With the Heat, however, you can't afford to give them extra opportunities to score. 

The Heat are still playing as a cohesive unit, with 25 assists on 38 shots. The Cavalier's best move? Getting to the free throw line. It seems to be the only way they can get points on the board.
