Heat Hang Onto Win, Steal Game 2 In OKC.

Despite tough stretches, the Thunder fought back from a 13 point deficit but came up short on a controversial no-call on Kevin Durant’s game tying attempt. By: Jerome Miron/US Presswire

The Oklahoma City Thunder lost a nail-biter to the Miami heat in Thursday Night’s Game 2. The Heat defeated the Thunder 100-96 but the score did not come close to depicting how tight of a game it really was.

The Thunder began the game in the worst possible way going doing 18-2 in the early frame. That would be the only quarter the Thunder would lose and it came back to haunt them. The Thunder defied all odds erasing a 13 point deficit in the 4th and putting the game tying attempt into Kevin Durant’s hands. The nearly 7-foot star forward ran the baseline with seconds left catching LeBron James off balance and was bumped on the layup attempt. Replay indicated James did in fact have his arm on Durant’s chest at the time of the shot.

The Heat escaped with the victory and now head back home for three straight games as they look to take firm control of this series.
