The Heat may have been missing three starters in their game at Brooklyn on Friday, but they still have the best player out there in LeBron James.

The first quarter featured a duel of sorts between James and Joe Johnson, who finished the opening period with 16 and 22 points respectively. LeBron got two of those on this possession, where he darted into the lane and received the pass from Rashard Lewis before finishing through contact from Andray Blatche.
