Wade, who was 10-of-14 from the field, scored all 12 of his first-half points in the second quarter, including a personal 8-2 run to help Miami go up by 11 points en route to a 50-41 lead at the break. He also hit back-to-back baskets in the third to ignite a 10-0 spurt that ballooned the lead to 64-46.
