Heat Vs. Magic: Miami Still Leading Orlando At Half, 55-45

Well it was no 23-point quarter, but LeBron James continued his accurate shooting and still leads all scorers with 29 points at the end of the first half. He finally got some help from the rest of his teammates, including Dwayne Wade who went scoreless in the first quarter but finished the half with five points. The Heat bench came in and provided some support for James, with Eddie House, James Jones and Erick Dampier contributing five, three and four points respectively.

The Magic are still getting their balanced scoring and Dwight Howard is still leading the charge with 16 points and eight rebounds. Hedo Turkoglu has seemingly shaken off his earlier collision with James and thrown up 11 points. Orlando is also getting decent bench production but they still can't seem to get hot from three-point range, shooting just three of 12 from long.

Both teams have pulled in 20 rebounds, but the Magic are crashing the offensive boards, leading the Heat 10-4.
