The NBA Finals kicked off last night. The highly anticipated match up between Kevin Durant and LeBron James proved to be all worth watching. Both came out and anchored their team, but in the end Durant led the Thunder over the Heat 105-94. Durant led the Thunder with 36 points, while James scored 30 points. In the first half, the Heat were never trailing. A big part of that was due to Mario Chalmers and Shane Battier catching fire from behind the arc. The second half was completely different story, the Thunder outscored the Heat 58-40, including 17 fourth quarter points from Kevin Durant. 17 fourth quarter points, that’s just insane!
Looking at Game 1, the problem isn’t with James, Dwyane Wade is the one who needs to step up his game. Will the Heat go down 2-0 or tie the series 1-1? Game 2 airs Thursday 9:00 Eastern PM, on ABC.
