In a potential NBA Finals matchup, the Miami Heat exacted some revenge and took down the Oklahoma City Thunder 98-93 on Wednesday night. It was just ten days ago that the Thunder clobbered the Heat in Oklahoma City.
Oklahoma City was led by a huge night from Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, who combined for 58 points. Problem was, the rest of the Thunder starters managed just eight more.
The Thunder had a chance to tie the game late in the game, but Durant was errant on a long-distance three point attempt.
LeBron James sparked the win for Miami, finishing with 34 points, 10 assists and seven rebounds. He was happy to have Dwyane Wade back in the lineup, who missed Tuesday night's game versus Philadelphia with a knee injury.
The loss is Oklahoma City's second is as many games, marking just their second losing streak of the season. They remain atop the Western Conference standings at 40-14, however, one game ahead of the San Antonio Spurs.
