James and Wade start strong as Miami level at the break.

The Miami Heat are tied at 49-49 at half-time against the San Antonio Spurs in Game 4 of the NBA Finals 2013.

The defending champions have started much better as they look to bounce back from the rout they experienced last time out, and both LeBron James and Dwyane Wade have started much more aggressive.

Having slipped 10 points behind early on, the pair attacked the basket with greater regularity to take a commanding lead before a late 11-2 run for the Spurs ensured that the scores are level ahead of the second half.

James has 15 points while Wade has added a further 14, with Chris Bosh and Ray Allen also contributing good numbers after the opening two quarters.

On the other side of the court, having been passed fit enough to start, Tony Parker has shown no ill effects of his hamstring strain thus far as he leads the Spurs with 15 points.

It hasn’t been quite the enthralling show from beyond the arc as in Game 3, but the Spurs will be pleased to have weathered the early storm as James looks in better shape to take control of the game, just as he promised ahead of Thursday night’s clash.

It sets up an intriguing second half of action, as the Heat look to level up the series and respond to adversity having been so thoroughly outplayed on Tuesday night.
