Heat vs. Thunder Game 2 Highlights: Epic Plays Must Continue in Game 3
Game 2 of the NBA Finals was an absolute thriller. The Miami Heat barely held on for the win after having as much as a 17-point lead at one point in the contest. The Thunder valiantly fought back in the second half and nearly pulled off an impossible comeback.
There isn’t much more you can ask for from either team and fans just have to hope that they can continue to keep this pace up in a series that looks like it will be going all seven games.
Let’s take a look at some of the better plays from Thursday night’s matchup and what we have to look forward to from Game 3 on Sunday.
The 22-year-old from the Congo is an absolute beast on the defensive end. He’s got an uncanny knack for flying into the air and getting a palm directly on the orange when an opposing player is going up for a layup.
Last night was no different, as the stud shot swatter added a few plays to his highlight reel.
Westbrook is a blur and might be one of the fastest people to ever move while dribbling a basketball. This speed demon displayed all of his horsepower and grace on a fast break in the middle of the fourth quarter.
Kevin Durant stole the ball on the other end, led Russell with the pass and the point guard put up a critical layup against a full-speed LeBron James, nailing it and drawing the and-one.
Durant Falls Short
Who didn’t expect this shot to go in?
KD may be the most clutch player in the league right now and made a number of huge shots in the fourth quarter of both games in the Finals so far. This one just did not want to cooperate.
It’s interesting to note that—even with the contact from James—Durant didn’t have the best chance of making this attempt.
According to Kirk Goldsberry, he only took about 6.3 percent of his total field-goal attempts from that spot on the floor during the season and hit at a 46.4 percent rate.
I guess it’s not as big of a surprise as we all thought.
James answered some questions last night and, most importantly, proved his value in the clutch.
The league MVP played up to his billing and hit some big shots down the stretch. His late bank shot was the icing on the cake and his free throws were picture perfect.
If the King continues to play at this level, he’s going to earn his first ring.
