Missed the mark
Kevin Durant is off target in the waning moments of Game 2, missing a chance to tie the score during the Heat's 100-96 win Thursday to even the NBA Finals at 1-1. LeBron James appeared to foul Durant on this attempt, but no call was made, allowing Miami to return home with a chance to close out the series if it can sweep the next three.
The Heat shot 47 percent from the floor Thursday to help even the series at 1-1. Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh combined for 70 points as the series shifts back to Miami for the next three games.
Throwing it down
Miami's Chris Bosh dunks home two of his 16 points Thursday against the Thunder in the Heat's 100-96 win. He also grabbed a game-high 15 rebounds.
Thunder backup forward Nick Collison hits LeBron James during a drive to the rim. LeBron made the most of his opportunities at the line, hitting all 12 of his attempts, including two with 7.1 seconds left that iced the Heat's Game 2 victory.
Up and down
Russell Westbrook put up big numbers (27 points, eight rebounds, seven assists) in the loss, but his decisions were questionable. The explosive guard took some ill-advised shots and finished with more field-goal attempts (26) than the reigning scoring champ Kevin Durant (22).
I'll take that
Kevin Durant rejects Dwyane Wade here, but the Thunder had their hands full with the Heat's star guard in the first half. Wade, who has had a number of slow starts this postseason, scored 13 points in the first half in which the Heat dominated, taking a 55-43 lead into the locker room.
Rough and tumble
Chris Bosh gets tangled up with Thunder center Serge Ibaka during the first half. There wasn't a big disparity in free-throw attempts as the Thunder took 13 while the Heat got to the line 11 times before the break.
Not in here
LeBron James had 14 points in the first half, but was denied on this well-above-the-rim attempt by the league's top shot blocker Serge Ibaka, who rejected the three-time MVP just as the half was coming to a close.
Dwyane Wade drives past multiple Thunder defenders on his way to scoring 13 points in the first half as the Heat took a 12-point lead into the intermission.
Let's get it started
