The Heat got 13 points and nine rebounds from Udonis Haslem while Quentin Richardson chipped in 10 points and 10 boards as Miami shot 51.2 from the field to dominate the Sixers.
Miami's 10-0 run early in the second quarter proved decisive, with O'Neal scoring the final four points of the outburst to put the Heat up 37-24.
