Ramon Sessions opened up the second quarter for the Cavaliers with a contested fast-break layup and was able to draw the foul. The crowd is still cheering enthusiastically for their team, but the booing and chanting seems to have died down considerably. It's hard to sustain blatant animosity for that long, I would imagine.
The 'other' James, James Jones, is quietly giving his Heat a boost, hitting three for three from three (say that ten times fast). His accuracy is contributing to a solid 52% shooting percentage. Dwayne Wade, who is probably thankful that the hate has been deflected away from him, has scored a cool 10 points, two of which came off a thunderous dunk.
Every time it looks as though the Heat might fail in the face of all their hype, they make heady, veteran plays and silence the doubters. The Cavaliers managed to force the Heat to take up the entire 24 second shot, but accurate passing and a last-minute lay-in from Juwan Howard saved the possession.
