Heat Vs. 76ers Score: Miami Leads, 66-64, After Third Quarter

After the Sixers won the first quarter and the Heat dominated the second, Game 4's third quarter was much closer to a draw, setting up a potentially great finish. Miami leads 66-64 entering the fourth quarter.

Both teams cranked up their defense in the third period, as neither scored 20 points, and the Sixers were particularly bad from the field, netting just 30 percent of their shots.

Dwyane Wade and LeBron James are still pacing the Heat and all scorers, with 20 and 19 points, respectively, but each is providing more than just scoring: Wade has six rebounds, four assists, three blocks, and three steals, while the reigning NBA MVP has six boards and six assists.

Andre Iguodala leads the Sixers in scoring with 16 points, but the second-leading scorer in white is a bit of a surprise: Evan Turner, whose rookie season has been underwhelming, has 13 points off the bench.
