Miami Heat vs. Cleveland Cavaliers: Live Score, Results and Game Highlights

Peter Emerick@@peteremerickSenior Writer IIMarch 20, 2013

I wouldn't be surprised if Dan Gilbert just decided to close up shop after the Cleveland Cavaliers devastating 98-95 loss.

Not only did they blow a 27 point lead to the Miami Heat. They also let LeBron James put together another epic performance against his former team, with his 36th career triple double—25 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists.

The Heat's 24th straight win wasn't easy, and it sure wasn't pretty, scoring just 34 points in the first half and 10 in the second quarter. 

What was so impressive about the Heat Wednesday night was their resiliency. Say what you will about the Heat's slow start and their inability to score in the first half. But erasing a 27 point deficit in a little over 12 minutes is absolutely amazing.

The Cavaliers were outscored 64-40 in the second half, thanks in large part to LeBron's 11-straight points—three three-pointers—from the 11:15 mark to the 9:40 mark in the game.

The Heat's comeback was absolutely unbelievable, and it only further solidifies Miami as the best team in the NBA, by far.

Championship teams find ways to win ugly games. Well this one was beyond ugly, and the Heat miraculously found a way to win it. 

Unbelievable performance by LeBron and company. Next up is a matchup back in South Beach with the Detroit Pistons on Friday. 

The quest for 33 rages on.
