Cleveland Cavaliers to face Miami Heat in pre-season

The Cleveland Cavaliers will play the Miami Heat in a pre-season game in Rio de Janeiro in October.

The NBA has announced that the Cleveland Cavaliers will face the Miami Heat in a pre-season game in Brazil in October.

LeBron James will face his former team in Rio de Janeiro on October 11, having ended his four-year spell with the Heat to return to Cleveland earlier this summer.

The Cavaliers will also face the Indiana Pacers and Chicago Bulls in their pre-season schedule, as well as Maccabi Tel Aviv, who were previously led by the Cavs' new coach David Blatt.

It will be just the second time that the NBA has visited South America.
