Mario Chalmers erupted for 19 points and five Heat players scored in double figures as they pulled away in the second half of a 103-84 drubbing of the San Antonio Spurs to even the series.

LeBron James was quiet before turning it on during Miami's game-changing 33-5 run spanning the third and fourth quarters.

James finished with 17 points, eight rebounds and seven assists, essentially erasing a forgettable start and giving the Heat life as the series heads to San Antonio for the next three games, starting with Game 3 on Tuesday.

Chris Bosh stepped up with 12 points and 10 rebounds, Ray Allen scored 13 points off the bench and Dwyane Wade had 10 -- all in the first -- in helping end the Spurs' seven-game winning streak.

The defending champions connected on 49 percent of their shots, forced 17 turnovers and committed just six of their own to turn the tables following the series opening loss.

Danny Green paced San Antonio with 17 points behind 5-of-5 shooting from behind the arc, while the triumvirate of Tony Parker, Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili combined to shoot just 10-for-33 (30 percent) from the field.

Parker, the Game 1 hero with 10 fourth-quarter points and a memorable bank shot that sealed the win in the final seconds, scored just three of his 13 points after halftime Sunday.

Duncan had nine points on 3-of-13 shooting with 11 rebounds, and Ginobili added five points in under 18 minutes of play.

Game three is Tuesday night in San Antonio. Broadcast coverage starts at 730pm and tip off at 8 exclusively on 1200 WOAI.
