The Cleveland Cavaliers fell to the Miami Heat last night, 98-95. The Cavs came out on fire, leading by 21 at the intermission and pushing that lead out to 27 in the third quarter. However, LeBron James and the Heat would come storming back behind a 33-2 run to give Miami the lead. The Cavs had the ball with seconds left down by three, but a CJ Miles trey at the buzzer would fall short and the Heat extended their winning streak to 24. The Heat hit 10 treys in the second half and outscored the Cavs, 52-22 over the final stretch of the ball game. LeBron tallied a triple-double for Miami behind 25 points, 10 assists and 12 rebounds. The Cavs were led by Wayne Ellington with 20 points on the night. Cleveland will now head to Houston on Friday night at 8.

Now if a quarterback starts to bring the football back to his body during the throwing motion, it will be ruled a fumble instead of incomplete. Also, it will now be a 15-yard penalty if a player who is more than three yards downfield or outside of the tackle box delivers a blow with the crown of his helmet.
