Miami Heat vs. Cleveland Cavaliers: Postgame Grades and Analysis for Miami

LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh don't need to play for the Miami Heat to win.

A few of South Beach's finest traveled to Ohio and emerged with a 96-95 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Though this one almost got away from the Heat in the latter four minutes, they had the game in hand for nearly four full quarters.

A good way to snag a shorthanded win—even against lottery-bound factions—is to shamelessly jack up three-pointers and then convert on said deep balls. Miami did just this, going 13-of-28 from behind the arc.

This wasn't a conventional victory by any means. The absence of any fast-break points on the Heat's behalf tells us that much.

But it was still a win.
