The Heat really had Oklahoma City by the neck in Game 1 of this series through the first 30 minutes or so before the tide started to turn and the Thunder started making some big time shots. Kevin Durant ended the night with 36 points, while Russell Westbrook had 27. Nick Collison knocked down some big shots off of the bench, and he actually led the team in rebounding with 10 boards. Thabo Sefolosha also had a great day starting at the off guard spot. There is a real question whether Miami is truly good enough to win too many games in this series. Chris Bosh only had 10 points, but Shane Battier had 17, Mario Chalmers had a dozen, and LeBron James had 30. Sure, Dwyane Wade could do more than come up with his 19 points and eight assists, but in the end, we really couldn’t have asked for all that much more out of the Heat in this first game. That being said, that’s why we’re going with the Thunder to take this series back to South Beach with a commanding 2-0 lead, which will put all the pressure in the world on the back to back Eastern Conference champions on the road to the NBA Finals.
