Cavs Vs. Heat Scores: Balanced Cavaliers Attack Controlling Heat At Halftime

LeBron James and Dwyane Wade have combined for 25 points in the first half, but nine different Cavaliers have scored leading the Wine and Gold to a 53-42 halftime lead over Miami at The Q.

Baron Davis scored 8 points, including a three right before halftime to end an 8-0 Heat run that had cut a 50-34 Cavaliers lead to single digits in under 2 minutes. J.J. Hickson has 9 points, Ryan Hollins 8 points and Luke Harangody 7 points for the Cavaliers who shot 57.6% from the field and out-rebounded the Heat 20-12 in the first 24 minutes.

The first quarter was a back and forth affair with the teams ending the first 12 minutes in a 24-24 tie. LeBron James was active in the first half, scoring 13 points while dishing out 6 assists and Dwyane Wade had 12 points. The rest of the Heat combined to score just 17 points, however, with the Cavaliers bench outscoring Miami’s 20-6.
