After an offensive first quarter, things slowed down in the second with the Miami Heat taking a 45-42 lead over the Philadelphia 76ers into halftime. Philadelphia has been content with cutting off the lane and is letting Miami fire away from outside. The Heat have already attempted 16 three-pointers having connected on six with Mario Chalmers doing most of the damage.
Chalmers leads all Miami scorers with 14 points and is 4-9 from three-point range. Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh each have 10 points and seven rebounds. LeBron James was quiet in the opening half recording just three points while only attempting six shots from the field. James does lead Miami with five assists.
Philly has been at their best when they have been able to get out in transition or when feeding Elton Brand down low. Brand has 14 points to lead the 76ers while Jodie Meeks tossed in eight points.
