Default Sixers have gotten off to hot starts in first round series vs Heat

Philadelphia has taken a double-figure lead in the first quarter in three of the four games in the series so far and has outscored the Heat by a 101-75 margin. The Heat are indeed ahead 3-1 and hardly in danger but admit they have to re-evaluate their strategy at the start. “We don’t need to overanalyze it,” coach Erik Spoelstra said. “You can see a different energy in the second quarter when we’re a desperate team. They have our respect; they have our attention. That type of desperation has to be for 48 minutes.” The Heat have been much better the rest of the game. For example, their 22-2 run in the second quarter in Sunday’s Game 4 made the Sixers’ 12-point lead after the first quarter seem meaningless. But the Heat know they can’t rely on such recovery runs as they advance.
