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.
