When the Heat and Thunder face off we get a rare treat — the two best players in the game who actually go head-to-head for a stretch. LeBron James and Kevin Garnett guard each other. They want to show each other up.
And for a couple of minutes late in the third quarter of Oklahoma City’s Wednesday night win over the Heat, they went back and forth at each other and put on quite a show.
On the night Durant got the better of James — they scored almost the same points (33 for Durant, 34 for LeBron) but Durant had the bigger impact on the game with 7 rebounds and 5 assists, being part of a Thunder team that showed fantastic ball movement all night. LeBron had 3 rebounds and 3 assists and the Heat turned the ball over 20 times.
