Jeff Green added 13 points, 10 boards and three assists off the bench. Cleveland outscored the Sixers 53-45 in the first half and outscored the hosts in every quarter.

Bet on Heat vs. Cavaliers

The Cavaliers are in cruise control mode as LeBron is dominating on a nightly basis and they are getting solid contributions from the bench. This spread seems a little low considering how well Cleveland has been performing, plus Miami doesn't have good recent history in this arena. Take the hosts in this spot.
