Heat At Hawks: LeBron James Scores 13 As Miami Leads Atlanta 25-21 Through One

Dwyane Wade and LeBron James got booed most times they touched the board. Al Horford dunked on Chris Bosh. And Wade barely went to the hoop. That pretty much sums up the first quarter of the contest between the Atlanta Hawks and Miami Heat.

James has 13 points on 6-for-6 shooting from the field to lead the Heat to a 25-21 lead through the first quarter at Philips Arena.

Bosh has seven for Miami, which shot a blistering 65-percent (11-for-17) in the frame.

The Hawks were doing all the right things until James got hot. They were penetrating the paint and either taking it to the hoop or kicking it out to the open man as they built a 9-4 lead. But then the stupid jumpers happened. James was all too happy to take advantage.

Kirk Hinrich has five points and Joe Johnson, Marvin Williams, Josh Smith and Horford four each for Atlanta, which didn't attempt a free throw in the first quarter.

Wade also didn't try very much in the first. He had just one shot. He missed.

Former Hawk Mike Bibby entered the game with six seconds left in the first quarter and got an ovation from the Atlanta crowd.
