The 76ers started fast once again building an early 14-4 advantage before Miami came roaring back to capture a 27-23 lead at the end of one. Mario Chalmers came off of the bench to spark the Heat scoring 11 points including going 3-6 from three-point range including a 30-foot bomb with just 0.1 seconds left on the clock. Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade each chipped in four points for Miami.
Philadelphia came out with a lot of energy before settling for a lot of long jump shots late in the quarter. Elton Brand and Jodie Meeks each have eight points to the lead the way for the 76ers. If Philly has a chance in this game then they are going to have to pick up their play on defense and look to run to get easy opportunities against a good defensive Miami club.
