If the Thunder can do that they would fancy themselves to be able to turn over the Heat and take the series. Game 4 and 5 will take place in Miami, but if the Thunder can pull it back to 2-2 tonight then they ensure the series goes back to Oklahoma - perhaps giving the Thunder the chance to utilize their home advantage and snatch the series.
If the Thunder are to bring back the series in their favor they will have to figure out how to stop 3-point sharpshooter Shane Battier, who has caused huge problems for Oklahoma in the last two games and helped the Heat win two on the trot.
The Heat will also be looking to tighten up their game having given the ball away too much in Game 3. Sunday's third game saw them guilt of 15 turnovers, which could prove decisive in a close game. Luckily for Miami they managed to hold off the Thunder and finish out with a six point win 91-85 in Game 3.
Miami on the other hand should come out limiting their losing of the ball. They had 15 turnovers in Game 3 and the problem with that is that a couple of them occurred down the 4Q stretch.
