Five Takeaways from the Heat’s 122-101 Victory over the Cavs

4. The Heat Have a Short-Term Memory

Dwyane Wade vs. Cleveland Cavaliers

In a battle for the Southeast Division lead on Thursday night, Miami blew a 15-point first-half lead in a home loss to the Charlotte Hornets.

The defeat dropped the Heat from the third seed to the sixth seed in the conference.

Fast forward two nights later and Miami bounces back to defeat a team that is clearly the class of the East.

In doing so, no Cavaliers starter played more than 27 minutes in the game. Cleveland’s starting power forward Kevin Love was limited to 16 minutes because of foul trouble and ineffective play.

In other words, the Heat dominated the third-best team in the NBA just two nights after a heartbreaking defeat. This is the type of the resilience this team needs to have if they want to be taken seriously as contenders entering April.
