"I heard it break", LeBron told reporters. "I heard it crack".
Just saying, I'd take a broken leg for $400K.
The first time that Cleveland and Miami faced each other this year, it was actually Kevin Love who had an enormous impact for the Cavaliers, scoring 28 points and grabbing 15 rebounds in the home game in December. With the loss, the Cavs dropped to 42-19 on the season which is now good for first place in the Eastern Conference standings with a 2 ½ game lead over the second-placed Celtics.
However, Miami's latest impressive win was overshadowed by the injury to Bogut, who only signed with Cleveland last week and had been welcomed to the team earlier in the day by being given jersey No. 6.5 - a joke that made the big Australian smile. Bogut stayed down awhile, then was helped off the court.
Superstar team-mate LeBron James said he didn't need the confirmation. "It's very deflating, it's a tough moment". We all were excited about the acquisition, you know, bring him in here. Goran Dragic led the game with 23 points (in addition to 5 assists and 3 rebounds), while Hassan Whiteside was good for 20 points and 13 boards coming off the bench.
Cleveland Cavaliers center Andrew Bogut lasted only a minute into his debut with his new team before a serious leg injury forced him from the game. "As soon as the collision happened, I heard it (his leg) break".
Bogut was unable to put any weight on his leg as he was helped to the locker room by new teammates Tristan Thompson and James Jones.
Rick Perry confirmed as USA energy secretary
So, too, did the nation's appliance makers, whose products are regulated for energy efficiency by the Energy Department. During his bid for the Republican presidential nomination in 2011, he said he planned to scrap the energy department.
It was a cruel setback for Bogut, who just a little earlier was cracking jokes about Vladimir Putin and talking about house shopping in his new National Basketball Association home. Miami has also now won 12 straight home games against Cleveland.
The Cavs lost more than another game, too. I was making this decision based on what the best opportunity was. "But the point is to get a win".
Heat: Dropped 16 3s after making a season-high 18 on Saturday. Heat G Tyler Johnson (neck, shoulder soreness) and F James Johnson (elbow) were held out.
The bulk of Cleveland's points came through James and Kyrie Irving.
Cavaliers: Smith may be just days away from his return after missing almost three months following thumb surgery. It wasn't almost enough, however, as the Miami Heat had two players that outscored at least 20 twenty points.
Former Cleveland player Dion Waiters scored 29 points against his former club.
"You always say you want to get back at them, this that, this that". On Thursday, March 9, they travel to the Palace at Auburn Hills to face the Detroit Pistons (30-32), who are now eighth in the Eastern Conference. James sat out the Cavs' previous visit, a 106-90 loss.
