NBA 2010 Season:Miami Heat vs. Cleveland CavaliersDecember 15, 2010 by Marc Jerbs

On Wednesday, the Cleveland Cavaliers faces the Miami Heat at Miami's American Airlines Arena. This would be the 2nd time Lebron James will meet his former team.

Two-time MVP Lebron James will now have a chance to showcase his talents infront of his new adoring Heat fans as they face his former team, the Cleveland Cavaliers. Chants of "boos" and "Akron hates you" greeted Lebron during his return in Cleveland last December.

With the support of his new buddies, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, James dished out his best performance of the season by scoring a season-high 38 points, 5 rebound and 8 assists. To add pain to his former fans in Cleveland, the Heat routed the Cavs, 118-90. The Miami Heat's Big 3 are slowly groping their deadly form. They have beaten 9 straight opponents and won each game with double digit leads.

The Cleveland Cavaliers started the season with a decent 5-5 record. But after their game against the Heat, they have lost 8 straight games and are now slowly feeling the effects of losing Lebron James via free agency. These may start the Cavaliers roller coaster ride this season. They may win additional games but their losses may come in bunches.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed the Miami Heat an overwhelming 17.5-point favorite to beat the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Cavs may have a slim chance to win against the Heat. Heat's complacency is the Cavs best chance to beat them on the road.
