Most Important Player to Watch: Kevin Durant
Durant has arguably been the most dominant player in both games of the Finals. He’s scored the most points of anyone and matched LeBron with 32 in a losing effort on Thursday night.
If he can continue to stay hot, especially from beyond the arc, the Thunder have a chance to steal a win or two on the road while they are in South Beach for three games.
