The Sixers were strong from the opening tip, they made their first 11 shots and raced to a stunning 26-4 lead. The Heat, though, erased the deficit in the third quarter and appeared to take control behind LeBron James.

Hawes hit a 3-pointer, then a driving layup for a 109-108 lead with 2:01 left.

James blew two straight chances to put Miami up, losing the ball on a drive down the middle, then missed a 6-footer on the next possession.

Shane Battier missed his seventh straight 3-point attempt, and the Sixers put the game away from the free-throw line.
