The Miami Heat host the Cleveland Cavaliers at the AmericanAirlines Arena on Tuesday night with a chance to hand the Cavs their fourth straight loss.

Bam Adebayo finally returns to the starting lineup and the Heat are now looking as close to full strength as ever this regular season at the perfect time. Cleveland, who will be without Kevin Love and Taurean Prince tonight, take a 5-14 road record against Miami, who have won four straight and 10 of their last 11.



  • Meyers Leonard: out for season (shoulder)
  • Avery Bradley: questionable (calf)


  • Andre Drummond: out (not with team)
  • Taurean Prince: out (shoulder)
  • Matthew Dellavadova: out (appendicitis)
  • Kevin Love: out (calf)

Tipoff: 8:00 p.m.
