Miami Heat vs. Cleveland Cavaliers Game Thread: LeBron James faces former team in Brazil

LeBron James and the Cavaliers take on the Miami Heat in Brazil.

Jason Miller

Another preseason game, another chance for the Cavs to get a little more comfortable playing together. Oh, and we have like 17 different storylines that are actually interesting. Yeah, this Cavaliers season is going to be something else. Anderson Varejao goes to his home country of Brazil and represents the Cavaliers in an NBA basketball game. That's pretty awesome. Andy has spent his entire career in Cleveland and it's safe to say he's a fan favorite. This is a big night for him, and so it's a big night for us.

LeBron James, meanwhile, gets an early matchup with the team he left behind this summer. James had an incredible run with the Miami Heat the last few years, and they still employ a lot of the players James had that success with. James is used to playing championship level ball with Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, and role players like Mario Chalmers and Norris Cole. Tonight, he plays against them.

Discuss the game here, this promises to be entertaining.
