Darius Garland and the Cleveland Cavaliers (38-27) will take on Jimmy Butler and the Miami Heat (44-23) in part of the NBA Friday slate.

No team in the Eastern Conference has a better record than the Heat this season. However, the Milwaukee Bucks are riding a six-game winning streak and are now just two games back from Miami.

With Jimmy Butler being questionable to play in this game, there’s a chance the Heat will be without their top star. Miami has managed to succeed throughout this season whether they have had key players sidelined.

Garland is coming off a 41-point outing and is in the midst of a season that earned him his first All-Star appearance. With key players like Jarrett Allen, Caris LeVert, and Collin Sexton all being sidelined.
