The Miami Heat and Boston Celtics have gone about getting their scores differently, but the result at the end of the first quarter is just about the same: Miami leads, 27-26. Boston has enjoyed a strong quarter of shooting, including two threes by Jeff Green, but Miami is getting to the line and avoiding turnovers, led by LeBron James' eight points.
Paul Pierce has five points and two rebounds, looking to bounce back from a Game 1 that saw him inexplicably ejected down the line. He'll have to contend with a Miami crowd riddled with seats covered in white, though the arena did get pretty fired up after performing the national anthem itself, sans soloist.
Doc Rivers said the key to the second is going to be hanging on to the ball -- the Celtics have turned it over thrice already.
