The Heat tried, they really did. But in the end, Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant were too good. Miami defended the Thunder well in three of four critical defensive possessions, but Durant spoiled two by drawing a foul and finding Nick Collison for a dunk on a beautiful pass, and Westbrook spoiled one with a tough fadeaway over Dwyane Wade’s outstretched arm after the Heat shut off the pass to Durant.
Too good, really. The Heat did all they could, but the Thunder were better.
