The Miami Heat is looking to bolster its defense Wednesday night as they host a Cleveland Cavaliers squad bringing in a much-improved road presence. The Heat are a contender in the Eastern Conference again this season, but took a beating at home on Monday, losing 120-111 to the Denver Nuggets. Denver shot 58.1 percent from the floor, and the game was never close once the Nuggets took control in the second quarter.
Miami Heat small forward, Jimmy Butler, has hailed the improvement of Nigerian point guard, Gabe Vincent, in recent games. Vincent has been impressive for the Heat in their last three games, clocking double-figure points from the bench including scoring 20 points to lead the team to a 107-104 win over the Chicago Bulls on Sunday. He had contributed 14 points, three rebounds and two assists in 18 minutes of the team’s 113-101 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves last Thursday.
