Andrew Bogut's Cleveland Cavalier debut didn't last long.

The first time that Cleveland and Miami faced each other this year, it was actually Kevin Love who had an enormous impact for the Cavaliers, scoring 28 points and grabbing 15 rebounds in the home game in December.

Before the game, Bogut was in a playful mood as he discussed his choice to join the Cavs. Bogut stayed down awhile, then was helped off the court.

Miami and Cleveland will be right back at it on Tuesday, with James and Irving both expected to play. "It's very deflating. It's a tough moment". 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.

Last week, we told you how Australia's most celebrated basketballer Andrew Bogut had transferred mid-season to reigning National Basketball Association champs, the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Theresa May turns the tables on Nicola Sturgeon over a second referendum
The SNP accused May of hypocrisy, for criticising Scottish demands for independence while seeking a "hard Brexit". May also made a promise about decisions made by the Scottish parliament.

Bogut fractured his left tibia after tangling with Miami Heat's Okaro White in the second quarter. "As soon as the collision happened I heard a break".

"When I went over to him, he said "I already knew, I heard it crack", James said after a 106-98 defeat. He could not put any weight on his left leg, as he was assisted off by team-mates James Jones and Tristan Thompson. "So I called Vladimir Putin and got it done", Bogut said.

With Bogut - who earlier missed the final two games of the Warriors' loss to the Cavaliers in June after injuring his knee - missing, Eastern Conference leaders Cleveland were on the wrong end of a determined Miami performance.

"It took the air out of the whole building", James said. Him getting some games under his belt before the playoffs, so hopefully we can hope for the best with the MRI or whatever the case may be, but uh, it's a tough one.

In an ugly instant, the Cleveland Cavaliers lost more than a game Monday night.
