It’s really hard to pick one Kevin Durant highlight from this game to show. Really, we could just post the entire fourth quarter.
But instead, we’ll go back to the second quarter, when KD drove the land and threw down a signature dunk over Chris Bosh. At the time it seemed a mirage, a moment of great offense in a sea of pretty bland Thunder play. But it was really foreshadowing. The Heat would get over their jitters and find their game in the third quarter, cranking up their defense then getting out and running.
And the Heat, they have a fourth quarter to explain. Again. Because it looked a lot like this second quarter throwdown.
