Miami's "Big Three" scored the Heat's final 21 points of the game. Dwyane Wade tied the game with two free-throws at the 5:07 mark and Miami took the lead off a mid-range jumper from Chris Bosh in the following possession. James scored seven points over the final 3:47 of the game and finished the game with 22 points, seven assists and nine rebounds.
The Magic had a big first half, led by E'Twaun Moore's 14 points on a perfect four-for-four from beyond the arc. Orlando outscored the Heat 55-39 through the first two quarters. James and Wade combined for 18 points, five rebounds and five assists in the third, however, and the Heat went into the fourth quarter down just six points.
The Heat struggled from beyond the arc, only making six of their 25 attempts. Orlando was locked in, however, making 43 percent of their three-point shot attempts. Victor Oladipo scored 17 points, and Glen Davis scored a team-high 20 points in his first game of the season for Orlando.
