Not hardly -- not with James around.
Cleveland shot 72 percent, more than doubling its first-half showing, in the third quarter, with James getting 14 points and two assists. The Cavs closed the third on a 10-2 run, with James getting eight of those points, to set up a wild finish.
But the Heat never trailed in the fourth and finished 11-for-18 from 3-point range. They also outrebounded Cleveland 42-33.
Notes: Wade went out with James and his close friends Monday night for a birthday party, but didn't get a gift. "He's got more money than me," Wade said. ... Plenty of celebrities were in the seats, including playoff-bound Miami Dolphins Channing Crowder, Joey Porter and Ronnie Brown, actor Jamie Foxx, Dolphins great Dan Marino, Olympic swimmer Dara Torres and singer Kelly Rowland. ... For the first time this season, the Heat had 15 healthy players at the morning shootaround. Forwards James Jones (wrist) and Dorell Wright (knee) are working their way back from injuries and aiming to make season debuts in the coming weeks.
