    Fiery Heat take 2-1 lead after big fightback

    Jun 18, 2012

    The Heat rallied from a 10-point third-quarter deficit and took a 2-1 lead in the NBA Finals with a 91-85 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Monday in Miami.

    Kevin Durant picked up his fourth foul with 5:41 remaining in the third, when the Thunder were up by six. They still managed to extend the advantage to 10 points but the Heat took control when Durant was pulled out.

    LeBron James scored 29 points, just a hairline off after five straight games scoring 30 plus or more, and hauled down 14 rebounds.

    Dwyane Wade had 25 points, seven rebounds and seven assists for Miami, while Chris Bosh had 10 points on three-for-12 shooting and had 11 rebounds.

    The Heat shot just 37 percent but made 31 of 35 free throws. The Thunder, who led the league in free-throw shooting in the regular season, made just 15 of 24 from the stripe.

    Durant finished with 25 points and Russell Westbrook added 19.

    Game Four is on Wednesday also at the American Airlines Arena.
