Didn't see the game, but was expecting the Thunder to come out strong in this game. They did, but the Heat are bringin it. Maybe the Heat are just peaking at the right time. They're in sync. I don't see how OKC comes back from a 3-1 deficit. Winning three in a row is one thing, but winning three must-win games against the Heat is different. They might win the next game, but the Heat should close this one out eventually.

Anyone with 20/20 vision can clearly see by the last 4 games played, the stage was too big for the Thunder and their inexperience was evident in every game from the start of the series.

Terrible.

OKC only 2 guys in double figures. That's not going to get it done. They needed way more performance out of Sefolosha, Ibaka and Fisher. Combined 9 points?

Collison gave them a good spark in the 1st quarter. They needed something like that for the whole game from their 3-5 role players.

Chalmers 25 points, too much. I think Chalmers and Battier have won the series for them.

Harden sure has cooled off. 4 for 20 the last 2 games, can't even crack 10 points a game.

Harden was the biggest issue. He missed wide open shots and even a lay up. If there was a singular person to blame for this lost, it would be him.

so john kerry is flip flopping again?
"i was for the thunder before i was against them"

sound familiar?

OWN IT! just like the rest of us, OWN your bad picks! ALL OF THEM!!!! you look like a hypocrite and an idiot when you pick a team, then as soon as they are against the wall, you switch to the team beating them. bad-wagoners are bad for sports!

The Spurs-Thunder and Heat-Thunder series' are perfect examples of why 1+1 doesn't always equate to 2 in Basketball. Most felt the Spurs were a better all-around team than the Thunder, similarly many feel that 1-12 the Thunder are better than the Heat, but this hasn't translated in the final box scores and series results.

Westbrooks mistake last night was really, really bad. I was watching the jump ball and literally said to my buddy, I hope they know not to foul, then of course of all people RW makes the mental error. Unreal.

An OKC comeback is conceivable. They have one more game left in Miami in which they are DEFINITELY going to go all out. Then they get to go home for the final two games where their home crowd will be louder than ever. A Heat loss in Game 5, plus the noisy crowd in OKC, may create just enough doubt in Lebron's mind to make him choke away the series.

^^true.

I would have to concur with other posters that OKC needs a little more playoff experience. There is no shame in that, they are an awesome young team. The Heat themselves lost last year to a Mavs team that had also previously lost in the finals....and repeatedly in the playoffs prior to that.

It just seemed to me that OKC started hot and got lazy thinking any old shot would just drop in. They then launched up more outside shots and that opened the door for Miami to recover.

OKC should be a force in the west for a loooong time. Gratz to them.
