Tonight in Miami, the Cleveland Cavaliers get a chance to end their road trip with a win against the Heat.

Of note, Kevin Love will not play after hurting his calf again when early against the New Orleans Pelicans over the weekend. It’s to-be-determined when he’ll be back, but it might be a bit. What the Cavs do with the starting lineup — one would presume Larry Nance Jr. will just slot into the four spot — could be the team’s go-to lineup for the foreseeable future.

Additionally, the Heat are pretty good! Bam Adebayo is back in the lineup and him vs. Jarrett Allen up front will be worth watching. On the wing, Jimmy Butler is lowkey in the MVP race and it’ll be fun to see Isaac Okoro defend him.

Cavs starters: Darius Garland, Collin Sexton, Isaac Okoro, Larry Nance Jr., Jarrett Allen

Heat starters: Kendrick Nunn, Duncan Robinson, Jimmy Butler, Kelly Olynyk, Bam Adebayo
