Oklahoma City Thunder Take Game One of NBA Finals

Oklahoma City Thunder  105  Miami Heat  94

(Thunder Lead Finals 1-0)

Well looks like game one goes to the Thunder even after a slow first half, and not looking to be in control.  But things turned around in that second half as Kevin Durant decided to take over and scored 17 of his 36 points in the fourth quarter, when it matters the most.

Score one for Durant in his match up against Lebron James as well with that performance in the final quarter.  All the stories about James and his inability to perform when it matters most will probably be brought up again.  Kevin Durant is slowly building his legacy with that performance as he’s come through in some final periods throughout the playoffs.

Can’t forget what Russell Westbrook did in this game as well.  He finished with 27 points and helped Durant out score the Heat team in the second half 41-40 in favor of Oklahoma City’s dynamic duo.

The Thunder are still undefeated at home, which is a great sign of what can happen in game two there in Oklahoma City.  They just seem to play at a different level at home as that crowd is so loud.  They’ve been dubbed “Loud City” there in Oklahoma City, and you can imagine the noise come game two if Durant and company put another performance like tonight together.
