The Oklahoma City Thunder continue to struggle from the stripe tonight and the team can ill afford to not take advantage of foul shots in the 2012 NBA Finals if they expect to best the Miami Heat for the NBA title. As Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated notes below, OKC has to shake their inconsistency to stand a chance.
If OKC loses, we will be talking about missed free throws. Thunder 11-18 tonight from the line.— Chris Mannix (@ChrisMannixSI) June 18, 2012
For now, the Thunder and Heat are fighting back and forth and this should go down to the wire. Those free throws stand out as a key point already, so hopefully OKC can turn things around. The worst offenders? James Harden is 3 of 5 and Nick Collison is 0 for 2.
