Notebook: Heat 100, Cavaliers 96


Brian Dulik, for NBA.com
Posted Tue Mar 18, 2014 11:40 PM - Updated Tue Mar 18, 2014 11:40 PM

THE FACT: LeBron James set a Quicken Loans Arena record by scoring 25 points in the first quarter for the victorious Heat.

THE LEAD: Four-time NBA MVP LeBron James scored 31 of his game-high 43 points in the first half as the Miami Heat edged the Cleveland Cavaliers 100-96. Heat power forward Chris Bosh collected 21 points and six rebounds, while shooting guard Ray Allen added 14 points. Point guard Jarrett Jack scored 22 points for the Cavaliers (26-42), who also received 17 points and a career-high 11 assists from shooting guard Dion Waiters. Miami (46-19), which has won 10 in a row over Cleveland, pulled within three games of Indiana for the best record in the Eastern Conference.

QUOTABLE: "When we started the game off, I felt like I could have went for 50 or 60 points. I was just in one of those zones. It's a great feeling. I shot the ball really well in warmups, and I was able to transfer it into a game situation."
-- LeBron James

THE STAT: James tied his career high for points in a quarter with 25, which also matched the Heat record he set on March 3 against Charlotte. "The Chosen One" shot 10-for-11 from the field, including 5-for-6 on 3-pointers, in a scintillating opening period against his former team. "He was out there doing pretty much whatever he wanted," Waiters said. "He made some tough shots." James also equaled Miami's record for points in the first half with 31, which previously was achieved by Sherman Douglas and James.

TURNING POINT: With the score tied at 88-88 with 3:43 left, Bosh scored five straight points on a 3-pointer and a running floater to put the Heat in front for good. James and Bosh then put the win on ice by combining to shoot 7-for-8 from the foul line over the final 66 seconds. "LeBron was hot early, then Chris Bosh stepped up late," Cavaliers coach Mike Brown said. "Those were two big plays that Bosh made with that three and the floater over two defenders." Bosh scored 12 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter.

QUOTABLE II: "The game called for LeBron to score a lot of points early, so he was taking what the defense gave him. He's not a selfish player -- never has been -- which is why he was making plays for other guys when they got more aggressive."
-- Chris Bosh

HOT: Heat center Greg Oden made his second consecutive start, scoring six points with three rebounds and two blocked shots in 14 minutes. Oden is averaging 3.7 points and 4.7 rebounds in three starts on the season. ... Miami center Chris Andersen grabbed a team-high eight rebounds off the bench. ... The Heat hasn't lost to the Cavaliers since March 29, 2011 and has swept the season series three years in a row. ... Cleveland center Anderson Varejao posted his 13th double-double of the campaign with 16 points and a game-high 11 rebounds.

NOT: Heat shooting guard Dwyane Wade (rest) was a last-minute scratch as coach Erik Spoelstra opted to give him the night off. Toney Douglas started in his place and scored nine points with three turnovers. ... Miami point guard Mario Chalmers made one field goal in 32 minutes. ... Cavaliers shooting guard C.J. Miles (left ankle sprain) returned to action after a 12-game absence, but only played two minutes. ... Waiters, who committed a game-high six turnovers, shot 1-for-7 from the field with one turnover in the fourth quarter. ... Cleveland fell to 15-18 at home.

QUOTABLE III: "That's what makes LeBron unique in this league. In today's age, there are players that would be looking for numbers. With that type of start, you see if you can go for 70, but LeBron is just playing the game the right way."
-- Erik Spoelstra

GOOD MOVE: James gave an honest assessment of the Cavaliers' season, saying, "I did feel like they would be better than this." The Akron native left Cleveland as a free agent in July 2010, but still makes his offseason home in Northeast Ohio. "With the acquisitions that (now ex-general manager) Chris Grant brought in, I thought it would make them a better team," James said. "Obviously, it hasn't worked out that way. And the news -- yesterday with Kyrie [Irving] going out -- didn't help things."

BAD MOVE: James also was asked if he had any interest in returning to play for Cleveland during his pregame press conference, but tap-danced around the subject. "For right now, it's too hard for me to think about that," said James, who can opt out of his Heat contract following this season. "For me to try and take my mind somewhere else is almost impossible, knowing what we have ahead with the playoffs." James spent his first seven NBA seasons playing for the Cavaliers.

NOTABLE: Irving (left biceps strain) missed his first game and is expected to be sidelined until early April. The two-time All-Star was injured Sunday during Cleveland's 102-80 loss at the Clippers. ... The Cavaliers also played without small forward Luol Deng (left ankle sprain), rookie power forward Anthony Bennett (left patellar strain), and rookie shooting guard Carrick Felix (left patellar stress fracture).

UP NEXT: For the Heat, Wednesday @ Boston, Friday vs. Memphis, Saturday @ New Orleans. For the Cavaliers, Thursday vs. Oklahoma City, Saturday vs. Houston, Sunday @ New York.
