Westbrook to Durant alley-oop vs. Miami Heat

The Oklahoma City Thunder are protecting their home court tonight leading 80-69 after three quarters vs. the Miami Heat. The Thunder started to pull away in the second quarter with plays on the fast break like this one that occurred in the third quarter.

The Thunder are able to match the Heat’s athleticism and have much more intensity tonight.

Kevin Durant is leading the way with 25 points, 7 rebounds and 8 assists easily outplaying LeBron James on the night. James has 13 points and has attempted just one free throw through three quarters.

Dwyane Wade kept Miami alive with three threes in the third.

This is a potential NBA Finals preview and right now the Thunder have a slightly better record than the Heat. Their matchups in the regular season may end up determining an important home court advantage once the Finals come around.
