The Cleveland Cavaliers lost to the Miami Heat's "JV squad" 96-95.

Norris Cole led the way for the Heat, with a near triple double consisting of 16 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists. He also stole the ball from Kyrie Irving as Irving had a shot at a potential game winner.

All in all, the Heat really owned this matchup with a Cavaliers team that certainly should've one—at least on paper. 

The Heat shot 13-of-28 from beyond the arc, and they also shot above 50 percent form the field. While they committed a disgusting 17 turnovers, the Cavaliers only scored six points off those turnovers. 

The Cavaliers just didn't look like they cared about winning or protecting their home floor against a very underwhelming Heat team.

They let guys like Joel Anthony, James Jones and Rashard Lewis have the best nights of their 2012-13 campaigns. 

Lewis had 19 points, Anthony added 11 points and nine rebounds and Jones scored 14 points on 5-of-9 shooting.

Every NBA team not named the Miami Heat should be absolutely terrified of the depth the Heat have, which was put on display Monday evening. 

The Heat are now just the 12th NBA team to get 65 wins in a single season.
