Heat coach Erik Spoelstra wasn't surprised so many players made key contributions without their third-leading scorer.
"One of our biggest strengths is our depth and versatility," he said. "We should be a team with 7-8 guys in double figures every night. It shows we have a lot of guys that can hurt you."
"Everyone was just kind of in a groove," Richardson said. "I was taking what the defense was giving me, but yeah, I was feeling it."
Cleveland dropped to 8-30 -- the worst record in the NBA -- with its season-worst seventh straight loss.
Cavaliers coach Larry Drew believes his team must show more toughness physically and mentally.
"We've got to be grimy as far as our style of play," he said. "We can't play cute. We can't play pretty. We've got to get on the floor for loose balls. We've got to get our body on people when they go in (the lane). We've got to do all the little things, which add up to be big things."
The Heat grabbed control in the second quarter, turning a one-point deficit into a 17-point lead. Jones scored 11 points in the period while Dion Waiters, playing in his first game in over a year, had seven points in six minutes.
"I was just really excited to get back," Waiters said. It was nice -- all the hard work you put in -- to have those shots fall, it felt good. I had fun."
Miami outrebounded Cleveland 25-9 in the first half. Heat center Hassan Whiteside had nine boards, matching the Cavaliers' total for the first two quarters.
Cleveland led 30-29 early in the second when Miami took over. The Heat hit six 3-pointers in the quarter, including three by Jones. Waiters added a 30-footer while Richardson and Tyler Johnson also hit from beyond the arc.
Miami led 58-43 at halftime and continued to pad the margin. Whiteside scored on an alley-oop from James Johnson, who added a pair of 3-pointers. Richardson's 3-pointer at the buzzer pushed the lead to 93-73.
The Heat can move over .500 for the first time since they were 3-2 with a win over Washington at home Friday.
Wade is averaging 14.1 points in 27 games in his 16thand final season. He played in 46 games last season with Cleveland, where he was reunited with LeBron James, before being traded to Miami. Wade is one 3-pointer shy of 500 for his career.
Drew said forward Kevin Love, who had surgery on his left foot in November, has begun shooting drills, but has yet to practice. The team doesn't have a definitive timeline for when Love will return, but it's hoped he's back later in the month.
Drew said Love will visit a doctor soon as he continues to rehab his injury.
Miami ended the game with a 47-22 rebounding advantage with Whiteside grabbing a game-high 12.
"We knew we had to be a little more vigilant, and we have been the last few games," Spoelstra said. "We were able to do that again tonight."
