Cavs sit James, Irving against Heat

Goran Dragic scored 23 points, Hassan Whiteside had 20 points and 13 rebounds, and the Heat beat the undermanned Cleveland Cavaliers 120-92 on Saturday night. Last season, the Cavailers set the National Basketball Association postseason record for most threes in a game against current Cavalier and former Hawk Kyle Korver.

J.R. Smith jawed with Miami Heat guard Rodney McGruder during the second half at American Airlines Arena. As time wound down in Miami's blowout win, television cameras caught Smith barking at Heat guard Dion Waiters from his own bench. Cavs Coach Tyronn Lue helped isolate Smith and, as the final buzzer sounded, Smith was escorted off by team security.

Added Frye: "It's not really a story". Tempers flared, it is what it is.

The eyes had it again Monday during the Miami Heat's shootaround.

The outspoken Smith, dressed in street clothes due to an injury that has kept him out for months, jumped up from the bench and quickly started jawing at McGruder.

Italy's Etna volcano erupts in eastern Sicily, poses no danger so far
The lava flows began at around 7pm on Monday at Europe's highest and most active volcano, and were continuing on Tuesday morning. Along with the orange fountains of lava, Mount Etna's erruption also resulted in an underground tremor.

"They shot the ball extremely well". In seven games for the Canton Charge, Felder is shooting 47.4 percent from the field, 40.6 percent from three-point range and 85.9 percent from the free-throw line. When informed of what he missed in the postgame locker room, James told ESPN, "That just means ready to come back".

J.R. Smith is now rehabbing from a broken right thumb, and he has missed the Cavaliers' past 34 games, but that hasn't kept him from being actively involved in his team-and it won't stop him from standing up for his teammates when he feels they've been disrespected. This time making a impact with the numbers.

"We probably could have had more", said Lue following the game.

Kyle Korver, playing against his former team, made the 3 that gave the Cavs the record on Friday. James, who tackled a Heat fan in celebration after one made a halfcourt shot for $75,000 in 2013, cheered when another made a shot Saturday for 100,000 frequent-flier miles.

-The Cavaliers signed forward Derrick Williams to a contract for the remainder of the season, the team announced. Miami has also now won 12 straight home games against Cleveland.
