Cavs fall to Heat, lose Bogut to broken leg

Former Atlanta Hawks guard Kyle Korver greets Phillips Arena security guard in his first game in Atlanta after being traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers

"It took the air out of the whole building", James, who had previously exclaimed that Bogut's acquisition could go a long way in Cleveland successfully defending the National Basketball Association championship in June, rued after Monday's 106-98 defeat to the Miami Heat, via ESPN.

He made 12 of 24 from the field and capped his display by banking in a three-pointer as the seconds ran down to stymie a late comeback by the Cavs.

Many analysts speculated that Bogut's decision to sign with the Cavs was a direct shot at his former team, the Golden State Warriors, who traded him to the Dallas Mavericks last summer.

Bogut was expected to help fill the role of big man behind Tristan Thompson, particularly in the ongoing absence of Love, who is out with a knee injury.

Cavaliers star LeBron James said he had guessed the seriousness of the injury after hearing a "crack". "Not only obviously for him, first of all, but then for our ballclub". Goran Dragic led the way with 23 points and five assists, Hassan Whiteside had a double-double of 20 points with 13 rebounds while Tyler Johnson chipped in with 17 points off the bench as the Heat dominated the second and third quarters by a combined 66-40 to run away with the easy win.

LeBron James was left deflated after Andrew Bogut didn't make it through one minute of his debut with the Cavaliers, on a night where they also lost to Miami Heat.

Trump has admitted, however, that Sessions could have stated his response "more accurately" at his confirmation hearing. Russian President Vladimir Putin, right, enjoys a Krispy Kreme doughnut and coffee with Sen.

Just two minutes into the contest against the Miami Heat, Bogut was defending when his lower leg was clipped by Heat forward Okaro White.

"As soon as the collision happened I heard it break", James said.

"When I went over to him, he said "I already knew, I heard it crack", James said after a 106-98 defeat. Where do the Cavs stand now without Bogut?

The 7-foot Bogut chose to join Cleveland despite having larger offers from other teams. "We will hope for the best, it's a tough one especially for him, first of all, and for the whole club".

Miami's win on Saturday ended with injured Cavs guard J.R. Smith being restrained and escorted from the floor by security after jawing with Waiters and Heat rookie Rodney McGruder.
