Recap: Cavs 114, Heat 88 (or, There Is No Spoon…)

Friday, April 3rd, 2015

The Cavs took on the Heat tonight in the fourth and final meeting of the regular season.

But sources said this week that Chicago essentially has conceded to the Cavs, knowing it can’t furnish a player with both Wiggins’ superstar potential and his favorable rookie-scale contract.
