Heat Have 8-Point Lead After 12 Minutes

LeBron James heard the boos, he heard the chants. He then went off for 10 first quarter points, leading the Miami Heat on a 16-0 run to take a 31-23 lead over the Cavaliers after the 1st Quarter. For the Cavaliers it was more of the same - Daniel Gibson, Antawn Jamison and J.J. Hickson all scored 6 points for the Cavaliers who were a bit sloppy early with 4 turnovers. Mo Williams had 3 turnovers himself and was 1-5 shooting. Unlike James who seemed calm, cool and collected, Williams seemed to struggle in the moment. The Heat shot 54.5% is the quarter while the Cavaliers shot 34.6%.
