This is true. they lollygagged around for 3 quarters. That last shot tho, Durant was FOULED. If this game would have gone into overtime, it would have been lights out on the Heat.

You can't fall down 18-2, yeah it was a nice comeback in the 4th but some leads are too much to overcome, this isn't the Lakers. Battier scores what 18 points, Bosh was beast as well.

I have to admit I loved Westbrooks hustle towards the end, and you have to give Lebron credit he played well all night, so did Wade. Nice game for Miami.

Even though he may have been fouled I didn't like the shot. Either drive straight to the basket or shoot a 3 to win the game

Heat in 6.
They'll drop one in Miami.
And close out a game 6.

Like I said, it's a six game series for the Thunder. They have four games left...

He was fouled and so was Westbrook on the rebound attempt. Lots of questionable calls tonight. Bottom line though is the Heat outplayed the Thunder. Series on! THUNDER UP!

It was a dumb shot selection by Durant so I won't get into whether or not he was fouled. Driving to the basket would have probably resulted in a foul call rather than shooting a fade away 3 pointer

People keep talking about how great the Thunder are and as if the Heat are lucky to win against them. What I see is the Heat taking this in 6 games because defense wins championships. The Heat's defense is a lot better than the Thunder's plus the Thunder aren't used to taking charges, the Heat make more of those gritty kinds of plays. Miami's offense actually looks like it's better now then when they played Indiana or Boston. Those two teams gave the Heat a harder time to score. I never remember the Heat winning so many quarters of basketball this whole playoff run within the first two games of any series. Heat have won 7 of 8 quarters.

Good game by the Heat last night, bad late game no-call with Durant and Lebron but I don't think the game was won or lost there. Miami has outplayed OKC in the majority of quarters, in both games OKC has had to launch a furious comeback, last night with Durant in foul trouble they ran out of time and gas. I was glad to see Lebron operating from 15 feet in; in my opinion that's where he should be, on the finishing end of plays around the basket, posting up using his physical advantage and not dancing out on the perimeter with Selfolosha in his face. Wade picked up his game, Bosh seems to be 'mostly' healed from his injuries. Tough series to call at the moment....

I agree with you! The HEAT are dragging their feet in this series! Bosh needs to get his rythem back! Bosh / Wade/ James in full speed should knock out OKC in a heartbeat!
GO HEAT!

PS: Lebron is a Monster!
