SPEAK OUT: Will OKC Heat Up Miami to Win NBA Finals?

After a win in Game 1, will the Kevin Durant led Thunder win an NBA title this year?

The Oklahoma City Thunder, led by Washington, D.C. native Kevin Durant (36-points), took a 1-0 lead in the 2012 NBA Finals over the Miami Heat in a 105-94 win.

“You know, this is a tough series,” Durant told The Washington Post. “This level of basketball is the hardest we play, and we just want to take it slow. . . . It’s a long game, and every time our coach was just saying, ‘Play harder, play harder,’ and that’s what we did.”

Miami’s “big three” (LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh) combined for 59 of the Heat’s points but couldn’t overcome a second half jolt by the Thunder.

I'm pulling for the Oklahoma City Thunder. Never been a fan of Miami (the team or the city) and Kevin Durant seems pretty humble and that makes it easy to follow him and his team. What about you all?

I'm rooting for this "young" team to overtake the "best basketball player in the world." The Thunder has worked so hard in its four years in Oklahoma City, and it is really incredible how much the city (and the state) is rallying behind this team. THUNDER UP! :)

I join you in rooting for the Thunder. I'm amazed by the number of Heat fans that have emerged as of late. My 76ers aren't in contention anymore so I get to cheer as an unbiased fan. The number of people I know that are all of a sudden die hard Heat fans have been silent all day.

Its sad to see the heat only get heated up when they r loosing,meaning when they cant get down to beating a team they get nasty and fustrated and play like hungry wolves and that includes the official referees they picked they setup the game to be played back to back so it will give them that chance to cheat broke up games back and forth theywould loose LBL
