The Cavaliers had a shaky start to the second half with two quick turnovers, both resulting in Miami baskets. Coach Byron Scott called a much-needed time-out to stop the bleeding, but the first play out of the time-out ended in another turnover, allowing Wade to score again.
The 'asshole' chants started up again with fervor when the Cavaliers trapped James and forced the ball out of bounds. The poor fans are looking for any excuse to get involved in the game again. Unfortunately, every time Cleveland was able to make some sort of potentially momentum-changing play, Miami forced a turnover and capitalized on the other end.
Dwayne Wade was still shooting lights out, 10 of 14 from the field for 22. Lebron James continued an impressive night in spite of all this, shooting five for five in the first half of the third quarter.
