CAVALIERS     Cleveland Cavaliers F Kevin Love begins rehab for hand fracture     
       Kevin Love will be out eight weeks

Deveney noted in his report that - thanks to the Cleveland Cavaliers' recent skid - the Heat have been "aggressive" in their search for pieces who can help push them over the top.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have endured a tumultuous stretch, but LeBron James inspired a 91-89 victory over the Miami Heat in the National Basketball Association on Wednesday.

Love suffered a non-displaced fracture in his fifth metacarpal and flew to NY to get a 3rd opinion on the injury. But for tonight, I think the rest of the Cavs band together and get the cover. They also committed 20 turnovers, costly mistakes for a team that prides itself on valuing possessions.

The Heat rank third in three pointers allowed per game (25.5) while the Cavaliers rank last (31.8).

The Cavs, who are 30-20, are in third place in the Eastern Conference standings - 6 games behind first place Boston and 4 behind second place Toronto. There has been lobbying for Heat guard Goran Dragic to make the All-Star Game, now that Love is injured, but he's struggled in the last week. Since December 30, the club is 15-4 and is now on another mini-streak which sits at two games.

With 15 points and six assists, Elfrid Payton was one of seven players to score in double figures for the Magic (15-35). In the first half, the Cavaliers scored a season-high 75 points on.617 (29-47, 8-18 3FG) shooting from the field.

Kemba Walker scored 38 points, responding after Atlanta almost caught up, as Charlotte earned a rare road victory.

Nicolas Batum had 10 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists for Charlotte.

Myles Turner had 15 points and 11 rebounds in his return to the starting lineup, and in beat Memphis for its third straight win.

Miami is 17-5 when they allow under 100 points, while Cleveland is 10-2. Hassan Whiteside, who has become the subject of trade rumours, added nine points and eight rebounds.
