The Thunder are trailing the Heat 47-46 at the half of Game 3 of the NBA Finals.

The Oklahoma City Thunder had another slow start against the Miami Heat and trailed by six points after the first quarter, but the Thunder made a run in the second quarter to make it a one-point game and now trail the Heat 47-46. It is a surprise that the Heat are leading this game, let alone up by one point at the half since their outside shooting has been horrendous. The Heat are only 3-of-22 outside the paint, and two of those shots are a pair of three-pointers by Shane Battier.

The Heat are in this game because they have been making their free throws and are 9-of-11, plus they have been getting to the basket and making easy buckets. Overall, the Heat are only shooting 40 percent from the field.

However, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade are the key for the Heat and they are killing the Thunder. James has 16 points and eight rebounds, and Wade has 11 points, five assists, four rebounds and a steal.

As for the Thunder their offense, they are shooting 50 percent as a team with Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook each have 13 points. For all the grief that Westbrook has received for shooting too much, he is 5-of-10 in the first half. The typical third-leading scorer for the Thunder is James Harden, but he has struggled so far and only has only three points on 1-of-6 shooting.
