PREVIEW: Cavs Look To Remain Hot, Welcome In Miami Trying To Make It Nine In A Row

2. No Second-Chance Opportunities- One thing the Cavs have buttoned down on is allowing teams to snag second-chance rebounds and reset the offense. Cleveland has cleaned up the glass at an efficient rate, which comes as a surprise due to the fact that Tristan Thompson is currently sidelined. While doing a nice job currently, it can be argued they will see their toughest challenge down low tonight.

That challenge comes in the form of Hassan Whiteside, who has quickly become one of the most dominant players at the center position. Whiteside is already known as a scary defender due to his shot-blocking prowess, but what really separates him from other bigs is his ability to snatch rebounds and immediately create his own look for a basket. The Cavs need to force their will inside on Whiteside and make sure that he does not create any second-chance looks for himself and his teammates, as the Heat have enough sharpshooters to make Cleveland pay.

Cleveland should also pay attention to Kelly Olynyk, who is a scrappy player and can create havoc that opens up the paint for Whiteside.
