Umm no, it wasn't a clear path. Durant went baseline, Lebron was right on him with his left arm on Durants side, and then clearly fouled him as he went for the shot. I don't know what 'clear path' you're referring to. I'd suggest you take your own advice and watch the video again.

Well maybe I need eye surgery because from the Video I see that Lebron is on Durant's right side and that the left side has a clear to the basket. That's why Westbrook is upset because of the shot he took not because he thought he was fouled

Game 2 really was all about Battier. He was the difference really. His early 3s allowed the Heat to get to the rim alot. Lebron, Wade, and Bosh all played as stars like they should, but they needed a role player to step up and sure enough, Shane came through. The question is, can he keep it up? I hope he can, but i think reality will set in.

OKC has proven that they can win anywhere. The next 3 games in Miami is not a big deal to them. If anything, OKC is probably more focused on the road.

I'm interesting in seeing if the Thunder's dumb coach will sit there again and watch his team fall down 18-2 before calling a timeout. That fool should have called a timeout when the score was 10-2.

The Heat definitely have a chance and I hope they kill the Thunder.
What game were you watching? They changed the call. They definitely got it wrong at first, but they reviewed it and corrected it.

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.
Give the HEAT credit, AND Lebron James. He was LIGHTS OUT!

The OkC Thunder will WIN game three..

MARK IT!
