2012 NBA Finals, Thunder Vs. Heat Game 2: Miami Leads 78-67 After Three Quarters

If the Thunder are going to make their run, it's going to have to happen soon. After three quarters in Oklahoma City, the Thunder trail the Heat 78-67.

The third quarter was back-and-forth. Every time the Thunder look to cut the game close, Miami answered. Kevin Durant has 16 points on 7-for-13 shooting, but sat for the final few minutes of the period with four fouls. James Harden has 17 points on 5-for-9 shooting but didn't score nor attempt a shot in the quarter. Russell Westbrook has 18 on 6-for-18.

LeBron James has 26 points, with most of them coming within a few feet of the rim. The Thunder have zero transition buckets, according to the ABC broadcast, as the the Miami defense has frustrated them all night. But OKC outscored Miami by 10 in the fourth quarter of Game 1.
