A late-quarter run by the Thunder has whittled the Heat's 15-point lead to nine, but Kevin Durant has picked up his fourth foul with 16 minutes left to play in this game. It's terrible timing for Durant's fourth, as he has yet to miss in the second half and has 16 points.
The third quarter has been a revival for Durant, but they're not getting much closer since LeBron James put on his "determined Mufasa" face and now has 14 points in the quarter, 26 overall, and is 8-8 from the free throw stripe.
Now 1:37 to play in the third and Westbrook/Durant have recovered to score 16 each, though it's taken a combined 28 field goals attempted to get there. In fact, every mini-run that OKC's put together has been defiantly answered by Miami who is singly focused on getting the ball to the rim on nearly every possession this half.
A wild flurry ends the quarter with the Thunder shaving one point off of their 12-point halftime deficit. Best lines so far:
James (26 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists)
