"I don't know, it's one of those zones," James said after he made 10 of 11 shots and five three-pointers in the opening quarter. "When I started the game off, I felt like I could have gone for 50 or 60."
James improved to 13-1 against the team he left after seven seasons as a free agent in 2010. He had 31 points by halftime and 37 through three quarters, but the Heat entered the final 12 minutes tied as the Cavaliers shot 60% from the field through three and had all five starters in double figures.
