Nunn and Robinson lead the Heat to a blowout win over the Cavaliers in Cleveland

The Miami Heat were able to earn a blowout victory over the sputtering Cleveland Cavaliers in Cleveland. They beat them 124-107 and were once again able to get a balanced scoring attack from multiple players. The Heat received high praise from Cavaliers Head Coach, J.B. Bickerstaff postgame.

“That’s a very good team we played tonight,” Cavaliers coach J.B. Bickerstaff said. “They know how to find Duncan Robinson, they know how to find Kendrick Nunn, and Jimmy Butler knows where he’s going to get his points.”

Kendrick Nunn led the way for the Miami Heat with 22 points on 9 of 16 shooting in 36 minutes of play. He also grabbed 2 rebounds and dished out 4 assists. Trevor Ariza scored 18 points on 7 of 10 shooting in 24 minutes of play. He also grabbed 2 rebounds and dished out 2 assists. Jimmy Butler scored 15 points, grabbed 4 rebounds and dished out 4 assists. Bam Adebayo scored 13 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and dished out 6 assists. Max Strus added 17 points off of the bench in 26 minutes of play as well.

Duncan Robinson became the fastest player in NBA history to reach 500 career three-pointers. Robinson reached the 500 mark in just 152 games. Remarkable feat because Damian Lillard is the next closest to Duncan Robinson. Lillard reached the 500 mark for three-pointers made in 199 games. Robinson also had a great game against the Cavaliers in Cleveland. Robinson scored 20 points on 7 of 10 shooting in 21 minutes of play. He also hit 6 of 9 front the three-point line.

The Miami Heat play their next game on Sunday, 5/2 against the Charlotte Hornets in Charlotte at the Spectrum Center. Tip-off is at 8 pm Eastern.

    This is an excuse making franchise, basically from top to bottom. From a guy considered to be a team leader (Love), to the coach, to the front office and PR staff, and that unbearable team twitter feed feigning moral victories after every blowout loss.

    We’re still blaming losses on playing “a good team”?? This is the NBA!! We play the same teams every year, same ones everybody else plays.

    BJ needs to stop saying that. The Cavs twitter feed needs to stop tweeting just to tweet. Sometimes silence is golden.

    And there is a newspaper or two complicit in the BS (not here). They’ve been buying the excuses from and selling them to the fans for far too long now. The job security of some of these long time Cleveland Sportswriters (and even a few new ones) after producing nothing but the company line is just so insulting to our intelligence. Its a constantly running message of “why” the team is not producing, and it never ends. One of the biggest cons in professional sports, your Cleveland Cavaliers.
