The Oklahoma Thunder will look to take a 2-0 advantage over the Miami Heat and preserve home court advantage. While much of the narrative surrounding this series has been on the play of LeBron James and Dwayne Wade, The Oklahoman focused on Kevin Durant's apparent mid-game scoring droughts, which may or may not be an elaborate play on Durant's part. With only eight points in the second and third quarter of Game 1, was he playing "possum?"
"I'm a guy that lets the game come to me but is also aggressive at the same time," Durant said. "I know when to take shots, when to make the right play. People can say this and that. I learned to just tune it out and just play my game."
It seems a part of it is becoming a game of possum.
