The Heat, who have won their ninth straight game, played without forward Chris Bosh who missed the game due to the death of his grandmother.
The Trail Blazers kept the game close in the beginning, down just three points four minutes in to the second quarter. But the Heat turned on its offensive to outscore Portland 23-8 to end the half with an 18 -point lead.
