CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

The Cavaliers could not hold on to a 27 point lead, falling to the Heat 98-95 at Quicken Loans Arena Wednesday night.

It was Lebron James's first appearance at the "Q" since the Miami Heat's championship and he led the Heat with 23 points.

Leading the Cavs was Wayne Ellington who scored 20 points and had seven rebounds.

The start of the Cavaliers/Heat game was delayed because of a leak coming from the scoreboard hanging over the court.

A leaky CO-2 canister was the problem. The game was delayed for 36 minutes.

Both teams were sent to the locker rooms for the break.  After the leak was fixed, both teams came back out to warm up again before the game started.

The Cavaliers staff lowered the scoreboard to get a closer look at where the leak was coming from and fixed it.

The game finally got underway at 7:46.

Wednesday night's comeback extends the Heat's streak to 24, the second longest winning streak in NBA history.
