New, comments

After just one game at home, Heat will be hoping to start a two-game road trip with a win over the NBA’s worst team.

The Miami Heat (22-24) hit the road once again and this time they will be hoping for a much more successful trip. They’re currently holding a two-game losing streak, but tonight’s game against the Cleveland Cavaliers (9-40) is a perfect chance to put that right.

The Cavs are the league’s worst team and have yet to register a win in the month of January, so you would fully expect the Heat to take advantage of a young team who just hasn’t been playing well. This will be the second of four meetings between the teams this season with Miami leading the series 2-0, thanks to a 118-94 win in December and most recently a 117-92 win at the start of the month in Cleveland.

Probable Starters:

Heat: Justise Winslow, Josh Richardson, Tyler Johnson, James Johnson, Hassan Whiteside

Cleveland: Colin Sexton, Alec Burks, Rodney Hood, Cedi Osman, Ante Zizic
