Thunder Vs. Heat Score Update: Miami Takes Late 50-49 Lead Into Halftime

The Miami Heat looked as if they were going to suffer another beat down by the Oklahoma City Thunder, as the Thunder at one point had a double-digit lead. Thanks to the play of LeBron James and his 23 points in the first half however, the Heat were able to take the 50-49 lead as the teams headed into halftime. Dwayne Wade also added 12 points while Mario Chalmers picked up 11 points in the first half.

The Thunder took a double-digit lead at one point, but went cold on offense as the Heat caught up. Kevin Durant leads all Thunder players in scoring with 15 points while Russell Westbrook has picked up 12 points and 3 rebounds. Oklahoma City has out rebounded Miami, but they've hit on just 30 percent of their three-point shots in the first half.
