The Miami Heat absolutely demolished the Philadelphia 76ers in the first have of their game on Friday night, taking a 57-30 lead after just 24 minutes. The Sixers are shooting just 25 percent from the floor while the Heat are at 55 percent, running up-and-down the floor for one easy bucket after another.
LeBron James leads all scorers with 18 points, and is the only player in double figures. He has missed only three shots from the floor so far. James also has five rebounds and eight assists already while Dywane Wade, Mario Chalmers, and Chris Bosh all chipped in eight points each. The Heat held Philly to just 12 second-quarter points, making this one academic just halfway through.
