Heat Vs. Cavaliers: After First LeBron James Score, Cavs Score Six Straight

It wasn't Lebron James but his partner in crime, Dwayne Wade, that put the first points on the board, and he did so in his classic style: a steal and one-man fast break. After a quick timeout, James made his first contribution with a 15-foot jumpshot. He didn't make it one second with the ball in his hands without the boos ringing out. 

After his score, Lebron's former teammates seemed to feel challenged, and so they went for six straight points. The first basket was a layup from Varejao, and then JJ Hickson hit two straight jumpshots. Every basket garners an ecstatic reaction from the fans, who sound as well-trained as the Cameron Crazies with their coordinated cheering.

Despite the intensity from the home team, no doubt inspired by their rabid fans, the Heat are managing to keep cool under pressure and lead 11-10 halfway through the first quarter.
