Thunder Vs. Heat Score Update: Miami Up 10 At Halftime

LeBron James has 15 points, five rebounds, and five assists and looks ready to get the ring he's waited his whole career for as the Heat lead 59-49.

Things haven't exactly clicked for the Thunder. On offense, even the rare good look they've been able to get has managed to find ways to rattle out of what seems to be the tightest rim in NBA history. And on defense, it's a mess -- as you could probably tell by the 59 points they allowed. There have been late rotations, bad bites on pump-fakes and, on one occasion, the team got caught just not guarding Mario Chalmers after he crossed half-court, allowing LeBron to feed him for an easy three. All in all, the Heat are shooting 56 percent from the field and are 7-for-12 from downtown. That's not good. The halftime score isn't even as bad as it's been - the Heat led by 17 for a time.

The star of the show, oddly, has been Mike Miller. Doubled over with a nearly geriatric back, Miller has been jogging up and down court and raining hellfire on the Thunder, shooting four-for-four from beyond the arc to finish with 12 after not hitting a single three-pointer all series. He looked to be in extreme discomfort after returning to the bench due to the back, but even if he doesn't score again tonight, he's done his job.

Enjoy your narratives, folks -- they might only have 24 minutes left to live.
