Miami hands Cavs first Summer League defeat

The Miami Heat's Summer League team handed the Cavaliers their first defeat of the "season" with a 73-69 victory over Cleveland on Saturday afternoon.

With another game tomorrow, against Milwaukee, no Cav received significant minutes.  Danny Green led the way for Cleveland with 17 points, while Jerome Dyson added 14 off the bench.  But 38% overall shooting pretty much decided things in this insignificant game between two teams that will play - shall we say - more intense games later this year and/or early next year.

And by the way?  Pooh Jeter, who is basically being written off as being a member of the Cavaliers in the coming season, led Cleveland in assists yet again.  Seems kind of difficult to let such a playmaker go.
