Miami Heat won the NBA Championships making Lebron James a champion. The Heat defeated Oklahoma City Thunder 121-106. Dwyane Wade won his second championship and the second championship for the Heat franchise. The Heat put this one away early in the third quarter.They jumped out to a huge lead as they did not stop making threes all night long.
The Miami Heat will win Game 5 and capture the NBA title tonight. There are a couple of reasons why I say this so boldly. First of all, look at the previous games. They took Game 2, which was a must win for them in Oklahoma City. In Game 3 they found themselves down by 10 in the third quarter. As soon as Kevin Durant sat out, they go went a run and finished the quarter with a two-point lead.
Regardless of what anybody says Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant have had their shining moments in the playoffs. Westbrook has been superb despite critics not liking the way he plays his position. He has averaged 29 points, 7 rebounds and about 7 assists per game. Durant disappeared in Game 4's fourth quarter, but he had amazing scoring nights prior to his Finals' low, 6 points in the fourth.
LeBron James is one win away from cupping the Larry O'Brien trophy for the first time in his basketball career.
With last night's victory, the Miami Heat have taken a dominant 3-1 lead in the series after defeating the Oklahoma City Thunder 104-98. James scored 26 points Wednesday night and has averaged just over 30 points in the NBA playoffs.
