Tuesday night’s NBA slate brings fans the opportunity to watch Cavs vs. Heat live-streaming online and televised game action. This latest battle features the newer version of Cleveland, which no longer has Dwyane Wade, as he’s now a member of Miami’s roster again. This matchup also features two playoff teams, as the Cavaliers have already clinched a spot, while the Heat are still trying to. However, they’re seemingly in control of their destiny with a five-game lead over the Pistons for the eight spot and just eight games left on their schedule. Here’s the latest preview with game odds, start time, television channels, and how to watch the Cavs vs. Heat live-streaming online.
As these two teams meet up in South Beach, the Cleveland Cavaliers (44-29) are sitting in third place in the Eastern Conference standings with at least a spot in the postseason confirmed. The Miami Heat (39-35) are holding the No. 8 spot at the moment and have the potential to move up based on what happens with the Washington Wizards and Milwaukee Bucks. There’s also the Detroit Pistons and Charlotte Hornets who each have yet to be officially eliminated from playoff contention. That gives extra meaning to tonight’s home game for Miami, as a win can help them move closer to the playoffs.
