Bulls Vs. Heat: LeBron James Leads Miami To 56-51 Halftime Lead

LeBron James scored 17 points in the first half to help the Miami Heat to a 56-51 halftime lead over the visiting Chicago Bulls. He's had some help, too, with Chris Bosh adding 14 with six boards and Dwyane Wade chipping in six with seven assists.

The Bulls have received 13 and 11 points from Derrick Rose and Rip Hamilton, respectively, but they've shot a combined 8-of-20 to get there. Carlos Boozer, meanwhile, has been outworked by Bosh, scoring just four points in a little over 14 minutes.

He's not going to forget that for a long time.
