In the 2nd quarter its more of the same as the Clippers take the lead 44-42 but the Heat take lead right back and hold on to it for the rest of the half as the score is 62-58. The 3rd quarter starts with an 8-0 run from the Clippers to give them a 4 point advantage. The Heat however battle back and tie up the game 81-81 going into the 4th quarter.
