VIDEO: What To Expect As NBA Finals Heads To Miami

The series is tied at one game apiece in the 2012 NBA Finals, and now the series heads to Miami for games three, four and five. SB Nation's Ben Golliver breaks down what to expect for the next three games between the Oklahoma City Thunder and Miami Heat.

The Heat needed to split the first two games of the series, and by doing so that gives them a chance to win the series. Had the Thunder gone up 2-0 over the Heat the series would have been essentially over, because the Heat would have needed to win at least two of three games at home which would be extremely difficult against a deep Thunder team.

The Thunder have multiple options starting with Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and James Harden, so if the Heat are going to have a chance to get past the Thunder they will need to find an additional scorer beyond just LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.
