The pressure is really on this young Oklahoma City Thunder team to even the NBA Finals against the Miami Heat at 2-2. Failure to do so would me Miami goes up 3-1 in the series, with one more game to play at home, before two opportunities to close the Thunder out in OKC, if necessary.
To add; no team in NBA history has been able to comeback from a 3-1 deficit in the Finals, though it has been done several times at other stage of the playoffs.
If the Thunder is going to have any more success in this series, Russell Westbrook is going to have to shoot better than what's led to his 28-of-68 field goal shooting up to this point. Many are calling for Westbrook to dial it down since he's taken more shots than Kevin Durant this series. But the truth is, they could use some of those Westbrook buckets with the defense LeBron James proved himself capable of playing against Durant.
