In the second quarter, the Thunder built on their lead. However, the Heat came storming back with a strong finish, and the Thunder led by 1 at half. In the third quarter, the Thunder played stellar defense on Miami, not allowing them to score, and the Thunder led by 5 after 3. In the fourth quarter, the Thunder opened up the lead to double digits on multiple occasions. The Heat rallied late, but the Thunder closed the game with free throws, and earned a huge 9 point win.
Kevin Durant had 29, Russell Westbrook had 18, and James Harden had 12 off the bench. Friday at home vs. the Bobcats. Thunder Up!!!
