That is what the kind of talent the Heat have will get you.
The Cavaliers found that out the hard way in a 110-108 loss to the Heat at American Airlines Arena.
Cleveland did not put Miami away when it had the chance. The Cavaliers hit 14 of 31 3-pointers and seemed to have control. But the Heat scored the final eight points of the game and got a couple of big 3-pointers from Ray Allen in a 31-point fourth quarter as the Heat came from behind to secure the win.
