The Miami Heat defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 3 of the NBA Finals, 91-85. Miami, playing in the first of 3 home games, had a solid effort protecting their home court. LeBron James was the catalyst for the Heat all night causing all sorts of problems both offensively and defensively. He stuffed the stat sheet with 29 points, 14 rebounds, and 3 assists.
Kevin Durant, who found himself in foul trouble late in the 3rd, did everything he could against LeBron’s stiffling 4th quarter defense and finished off with 25 points, 6 rebounds, and 5 fouls.
Amazing how different LeBron's last 2 games have been. G1: didn't guard KD or attack him on offense. G2&3: Just the opposite. Thank you, LBJ—
