It has lifted the curtain. The party has already begun. The NBA Finals to be played back, the magic and spectacle have become joined. The Oklahoma City Thunder and the Miami Heat the dispute with home court for the former.
Provides exciting, tense, equalized. For now, the first blow has been given by the Thunder. Comeback in the second half, led not-for-like Kevin Durant, placed 1-0 in the series.
The game started favorably for visitors. Hit in triples (3 of Shane Battier and one of Chalmers) and control the rebound made it 10-20 in the placed the 7 min. The Chesapeake Arena fell silent for a moment, watching his men were unable to cut such bleeding scorer. KD35 All I saw was the ring with relative ease (11 points). The Heat had in Mario Chalmers (8 points) a resource added to your Big3, and it worked. A buzzer beater by James Harden left the 22-29 in the light.
In the second period, a mate of LeBron put the 24-37 in the absence of 9 minutes. LB6 had scored 6 points at the start of the fourth and left the biggest difference on the scoreboard. The hosts responded with two shots of immeasurable Derek Fisher, who drew his own score and was air. The fluid scoring Florida and elsewhere. All headlines Chris Bosh had. And Serge Ibaka appeared. Six points of Spanish Congolese placed the Thunder in the game, far from the Heat (47-54).
No time to think. We must act. This must be the speech of OKC at halftime, as they placed a partial return of 11-4 to turn the marker. LeBron did not relax and returned his four points the distance on the scoreboard (60-64). But the beast was already unleashed. After four missed shots and 2 losses, the Heat looked like they faded away any advantage. Russell Westbrook was unstoppable and showed 6 points in the last two minutes put the 74-73.
Fourth quarter. All to. Full equality. One name above all Kevin Durant. The eaves of the OKC has added 17 points in the decisive final period, putting the 1-0. From all sides, of all colors. Advantage at the start (78-73), equal to half (82-79), off in the last 6 minutes. Durant six points put the 91-83. Wade responded with LeBron, but KD had Westbrook and Nick Collison to make good. The pivot scored 4 points and secured several rebounds in the final stretch. The exchange of baskets only favored local controlled the tempo of the match and secured their first victory. Durant amazing, incredible atmosphere. Great victory.
The Heat have shown they can win, and for joy of them have turned players like Battier, who joined another dimension given Chalmers alongside the B3, but have noticed too poor shot selection Wade (7/19) Bosh (4/11) with the little contribution within Haslem (4 points). The Thunder have reacted well, at home, in time, but have not had James Harden (5 points), which should appear in the second game if you do not want to suffer so many minutes.
