A Twitter diary of Heat at Cavs

@the_real_nash (Steve Nash)

Hey Cleveland! How pumped are you for the Phoenix/Golden State game tonight?

3:32 p.m.

@SpearsNBAYahoo (Marc J. Spears)

You know some craziness expected when CNN is reporting live from Quicken Loans Arena four hours before LeBron returns.

4:09 p.m.

@BLKICE3 (Brandon Jennings)

Its like ur ex girlfriend coming to your wedding. Fa real??? That was wack

6:03 p.m.

@BLKICE3 (Brandon Jennings)

I'm a lebron fan tonight just for tonight though

6:17 p.m.

@WallaceHeatNBA (Michael Wallace)

Best anti-LeBron sign of night so far: "11-8? Looks like you left your talents in Cleveland."

7:49 p.m.

@flintstone14 (Charlie Bell)

Sitting here waiting on this Miami Cleveland game. Lol. Going to be crazy

7:53 p.m.

@darrenrovell (Darren Rovell)

What does it say about the state of media that the best pre-game show is on Twitter. Bad decision making or technology?

7:56 p.m.

@dbradyc2 (Brady Cotter)

LBJ bobbleheads in the urinals at the Q. Love this city.

7:56 p.m.

@TheDaSeanButler (Da'Sean C Butler)

I hope he scores 101

8:01 p.m.

@PDcavsinsider (Mary Schmitt Boyer)

Poor Moondog is wearing a bulletproof vest. Worst has been a 7-letter chant from crowd, no need for the mascot to fear.

8:01 p.m.

@freedarko (Bethlehem Shoals)

Bieber > LeBron. Nice sign. GAME OVER.

8:02 p.m.

@BlackBoiPachino (Anthony Morrow)

Bout to watch this drama unfold TNT

8:03 p.m.

@lancearmstrong (Lance Armstrong)

Lebron back in Cleveland. I don't watch the NBA but I'm watching this.

8:05 p.m.

@JHarden13 (James Harden)

This Lebron game is about to get crazy!..who's watching?

8:06 p.m.

@CJMiles34 (C.J. Miles)

Im goin to the gym ... we all kno they gonna boo him why everybody on here tweetin like its a surprise .... this hype of this game is just

8:08 p.m.

@jermaineoneal (Jermaine O'Neal)

I think that this game won't be close either way for the cavs or heat! Someone is going to get blown out! I think its to much emotion in it!

8:11 p.m.

@WindhorstESPN (Brian Windhorst)

Covered Finals games and many playoff games at The Q, never heard it like this or felt this intensity. Never.

8:14 p.m.

@tj_ford (TJ Ford)

Glad he did it.. LBJ6... Lmfao

8:18 p.m.

@johnhollinger (John Hollinger)

check out the svelte Drew Carey behind Reggie!

8:18 p.m.

@treykerby (Trey Kerby)

I bet Chris Bosh is the one most affected by this.

8:23 p.m.

@boogiecousins (DeMarcus Cousins)

Da big homie bron bout to act a fool tonight!

8:30 p.m.

@WojYahooNBA (Adrian Wojnarowski)

Even LeBron isn't buying the "Akron hates you" chant.

8:35 p.m.

@richarddeitsch (Richard Deitsch)

Cavs owner Dan Gilbert looks like he last slept in 1946.

8:36 p.m.

@InsideHoops (Inside Hoops)

Fans at #Heat/Cavs are actually booing Craig Sager's suit, and are unaware the game has even started.

8:37 p.m.

@freedarko (Bethlehem Shoals)

Good move, dude, wearing a "Victim" (instead of "Witness") shirt. Wear that proud.

8:37 p.m.

@Mr_iKeepitreal (Retweeted by Hasheem Thabeet)

I'm not a heat fan, but I hope they win tonight so I can see some white folks overreact. If we're lucky they might riot on TV :)

8:42 p.m.

@quietstorm_32 (C.J. Watson)

If I was Lebron I wouldve bought every courtside seat possible and put my ppl in those seats to piss the owner off lol

8:44 p.m.

@ABJCavsInsider (Jason Lloyd)

#LeBron did the powder toss. Fans booed him, that's about it.

8:54 p.m.

@farouq1 (Al-Farouq Aminu)

Been so long since I watch Simpsons. Nice being able to catch it

8:57 p.m.

@MrMichaelLee (Michael Lee)

Boobie Gibson just showed everybody why LeBron James decided it was time to go.

8:59 p.m.

@freedarko (Bethlehem Shoals)

Okay, so we're done here?

9:04 p.m.

@BLKICE3 (Brandon Jennings)

It seems like MO williams is throwing this game???? Or Am I wrong everybody???

9:13 p.m.

@WindhorstESPN (Brian Windhorst)

Heat lead Cavs 59-40 at half. LeBron has 14 points, 4 reb & 6 asst. Shot just 1-of-5 in 2Q. Lookout, fans headed for bars.

9:24 p.m.

@BlackBoiPachino (Anthony Morrow)

I took a nap, woke up, and this game is uglier than a Master P sneaker

9:29 p.m.

@HowardBeckNYT (Howard Beck)

Through one half at the Q, the score is Profanity 10, Civility 0. Also going scoreless: creativity.

9:37 p.m.

@realchriswebber (Chris Webber)

There aren't any more dogs in this world. Cavs bench laughing with dude that left y'all. Yeah that's funny. Grow some cajones... Anyway

9:38 p.m.

@PDcavsinsider (Mary Schmitt Boyer)

"Scot-tie Pip-pen" chant would be funnier if#Cavaliers weren't down 25. #LeBron 3 in front of Cavs bench.

9:58 p.m.

@marcel_mutoni (Marcel Mutoni)

Dan Gilbert should suit up in the 4th quarter. He may be the only Cav with any fight in him. He's also nuts.

9:59 p.m.

@InsideHoops (Inside Hoops)

Heat/Cavs: The loud 'swish' sound after each Miami shot is drowning out the Cavs fan chants. 80-50, Miami up.

9:59 p.m.

@mcten (Dave McMenamin)

This fourth quarter is going to be awfully boring. Is it too much to ask for LeBron to start trash talking w/ Dan Gilbert to entertain us?

10:06 p.m.

@JPosnanski (Joe Posnanski)

People kept asking Cleveland fans not to embarrass themselves. Good thing. The Cavs players have taken that role for themselves.

10:08 p.m.

@SeanSingletary (Sean Singletary)

It took years for #Lebron to build the Cleveland Cavalier Franchise.. N it has taken him 2hrs to destroy it...

10:15 p.m.

@briancmahoney (Brian Mahoney)

At least Gilbert can console himself with the thought that maybe he and his owner buddies can take most of LeBron's salary away next year.

10:18 p.m.

@DevineBoston (Dan Devine)

“We're getting killed out there! What happened to the defensive gameplan you were making?" "I thought I was supposed to make the chants."

10:27 p.m.

@PDcavsinsider (Mary Schmitt Boyer)

Not sure anyone here is watching this game anymore. Everyone's looking for the next fight, there's a scuffle right by Heat bench now.

10:33 p.m.

@gwashburn14 (Gary Washburn)

Fan holds up sign "We should have drafted Darko." Now that may be the best one of the night

10:38 p.m.

@J_Flynn (Jonny Flynn)

My TL was tooooo funny tonight. Good laughs. "I'm taking my talents" to sleep now. Night world
