Durant is one of the NBA's best outside shooters.
Kevin Durant is arguably the best shooter in the NBA today, and leads this Oklahoma City squad that is an offensive monster. The Thunder are the highest scoring team in the NBA, and can score in bunches.
However, in the team's losses to Miami, they have struggled shooting from outside.
Against Miami in last season's NBA Finals, the Thunder shot just 30.5 percent from behind the arc. That was significantly lower than OKC's season average of 35.5 percent from deep last season.
This was a similar occurrence on Christmas Day in Miami, as the Thunder were not as efficient with the three-point shot then either.
In that first meeting, a 103-97 Miami victory, the Oklahoma City Thunder did not shoot as effectively as the team is capable of. The Thunder were only able to hit a lowly five three-pointers of the unit's 16 attempts.
On the season, the Thunder are shooting just over 48 percent from the field and over 39 percent from downtown. Against Miami on Christmas Day, OKC made just over 42 percent from the field, including just over 31 percent from deep.
If the Thunder can get more efficient three-pointers to go, it will give them a better chance to take down Miami.
