June 12, 2012 – Oklahoma City, OK
The Oklahoma City Thunder had some fourth-quarter lightning in the form of Kevin Durant, who sparked a rally on their way to a 105-94 victory over the Miami Heat in Game 1 of the NBA finals.
Durant led his team with 36 points, scoring 17 of them in the fourth quarter. Russell Westbrook added 27 (with 11 assists and 8 rebounds) and Serge Ibaka scored 10. The Durant-Westbrook duo ran circles around the Heat in the fourth quarter, outscoring the entire Heat team 41-40 in the second half.
Lebron James led his team with 30 points, but conjured up ghosts of the past with just seven points in the fourth quarter. James has a history of poor fourth quarter performances. Dwyane Wade, possibly playing hurt, scored just 19 points and Shane Battier added 17, 12 of which were 3-pointers.
The team that wins Game 1 wins the series 72.7 percent of the team though last year’s winner of Game 1 lost – that would be the Miami Heat.
