Antawn Jamison Scores 17 To Lead Cavs After 24 Minutes

The Cleveland Cavaliers aren’t making things easy on the Miami Heat tonight in Miami. After watching the Heat score 35 points in the first quarter en route to a 35-20 lead, the Wine and Gold fought back, started to rebound, and most importantly, started to score, cutting the lead to nine at halftime – 66-57.

Antawn Jamison led the Cavaliers with 17 points while Manny Harris had 11. Ramon Sessions is also stuffing the stat sheet, scoring 7 points to go with 3 rebounds and 4 assists.

Dwyane Wade had a huge first half for the Heat, scoring 26 points on 11-15 shooting. At one point, Wade scored 11 straight points for Miami. LeBron James has 15 points and 6 assists. No one else has more than 6 points for the home team.

The Cavaliers, of course, are playing without Mo Williams who remained out with a hip injury and Daniel Gibson who injured his leg against the Magic last night.
