After losing Game 1 of the NBA Finals, the Miami Heat have started to use their age and experience to beat the OKC Thunder. Bomani Jones explains more.

We're three games into the 2012 NBA Finals, and the Oklahoma City dynasty that folks were sure started after Game 1 looks a little bit more shaky. Remember that, when the guys on TV started talking about how the Heat better win this year before OKC rattled off five in a row ... even though either James Harden or Serge Ibaka will probably be out of town in 2013.

Anyway, the series is now 2-1, and now we can see there's two sides to the Thunder's "youth." There's all the energy and potential. Then there's the fact that Miami's old ... but in a good way. Ever seen young hotshot high schoolers play against a team full of grown men?

Doesn't that look a lot like Games 2 and 3 of the NBA Finals?

See what I mean? If not, the latest "Bomani & Jones" will make it clear ... and explain how Dwyane Wade's game is a lot like playing spades.
