The rough patch for the Cleveland Cavaliers seems to be over and the team is playing as fans expected them to once again.
They were able to take on and beat the Miami Heat on Sunday, overcoming the Jimmy Butler-less team 113-87 at home.

The team’s biggest stars came out to play in a big way on Sunday.
Darius Garland was once again a unit with 25 points and 7 assists, while Evan Mobley was good for 15 points and 10 rebounds, Donovan Mitchell put up 13, and Lamar Stevens sank 11 points.
Meanwhile, bench players Cedi Osman and Isaac Okoro put up 20 and 13 respectively.
The Cavaliers are looking good again.
They will need to keep this up for their next stretch of games if they want to give fans something to be truly thankful for.
A Tough Week
The Cavaliers have impressed, winning their last two games, against the Heat on Sunday and then the Charlotte Hornets in double overtime on Friday.
But the next few days will give them quite a few challenges to overcome.
Firstly, they will need to defeat the Atlanta Hawks on Monday, meaning they will have very little rest after Sunday’s win before taking on one of the best teams in the East.
Following that, they will face off against the difficult Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday before taking on Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday.
They’ll finally catch a break on Friday when they go toe-to-toe with the Detroit Pistons.
All in all, it’ll be a busy and likely intense week for the Cavs.
But it’ll be a chance for them to prove to their fans – again – that they are one of the most exciting young teams in the league.
