Friday, Oct. 30: Cavs vs. Miami Heat - We're not alone in thinking that a healthy Cleveland Cavaliers would have brought home a title this past season. But injuries to two of the team's Big Three proved too much to overcome against a sharp-shooting Golden State Warriors squad. But hope springs eternal and if this year's team can stay healthy, it should be headed back to the Finals. The quest begins tonight as the season opens with a 7 p.m. game against the Miami Heat, the team to which Cavs star LeBron James once defected. The game is sold out so you're best chance to grab tickets is through a broker. (Niesel, photo by Emanuel Wallace)
