NBA: Golden State Warriors at Miami Heat Mary Holt-USA TODAY Sports

The Cleveland Cavaliers have a tough game ahead of them in facing the Miami Heat in Miami on Saturday. It’s a place Cleveland has historically struggled to win in and Miami is really, really good.

The Cavs are also still missing some key players in Larry Nance Jr., Jarrett Allen and Dylan Windler. But they are getting closer to full health than they’ve been in some time and that is going to be a big, big win for the team. Even if it doesn’t push them into a real race for the play-in tournament, it’ll make them function better. That’s a win for everyone.

Cleveland Cavaliers expected starters: Collin Sexton, Darius Garland, Isaac Okoro, Ta, Kevin Love

Miami Heat expected starters: Victor Oladipo, Duncan Robinson, Victor Oladipo, Trevor Ariza, Bam Adebayo
