CLEVELAND (AP) - Cavaliers point guard Baron Davis will make his first start since joining Cleveland against the Miami Heat.

Coach Byron Scott wanted to get Davis as many starts as possible before the end of the season. And with 10 games left, the veteran will get his first against LeBron James and the Heat, who are 3-0 against the Cavaliers this season.

Davis has been slowed by a knee injury and back spasms since he was acquired in a Feb. 24 trade with the Los Angeles Clippers. Davis also missed time following his grandmother’s death.

Davis is averaging 15.3 points in six games coming off Cleveland’s bench. He’ll replace Ramon Sessions in the starting lineup.
