The Miami Heat tied the NBA Finals 1-1 with a Thursday night win and now the Oklahoma City Thunder head to South Beach to try to steal a road game in the series.
The Miami Heat 's 100-96 victory over the Thunder in Oklahoma City on Thursday evening knotted the NBA Finals at a game apiece. Now, the series takes its talents to South Beach, as the Heat hope to stave off the Thunder stealing a road game.
The Heat were able to take an early double-digit lead in Game 2, just as they had in Game 1, but this time the Thunder weren't able to close the gap at halftime. However, the Thunder did rally back late in the second half but fell short after some questionable calls.
If the first two games are any indication of how this series will play out, fans can expect another thrilling game on Sunday night between these two talented teams.
Game Time: 8 p.m. EDT, Sunday, June 17
Location: AmericanAirlines Arena, Miami, Fla.
