Posted on 21 Feb, 2014, by in NBA

The Miami Heat players wanted to prove they’re better than the Oklahoma City Thunder. LeBron James was in the same mindset, focusing on Kevin Durant. Russell Westbrook made his return, but it didn’t really help as the NBA champions went on to dominate from top to bottom in a 103-81 win. More

Posted on 23 Aug, 2012, by in NBA

If you’d have to pick, right now, two NBA teams that are going to reach the 2013 NBA Finals, it would probably be the Oklahoma City Thunder from the West and the Miami Heat from the East. While the Thunder should run into a bit more opposition from the Lakers than they did last year but at the moment, most signs point to a repeat of the recent finals series. More

Posted on 24 Jul, 2012, by in NBA

There’s nothing better for the NBA’s opening night that A) starting it on time and not on Christmas and B) pitting together two big rivals. The Miami Heat, the NBA champions, needed 7 games and some LeBron James heroics to get past the Boston Celtics in the Eastern conference finals. Ray Allen’s first game against his former team will be another interesting feature to the key match-up of the NBA’s opening night. More

2012 NBA Finals, Game 2 – Thunder Can’t Rely on Kevin Durant Saving Them Every Time

He scored 17 points in the final quarter of game 1. Good enough for a 105-94 win. He scored 16 points in Game 2. Not enough to come back from a 17 point deficit, and not enough to deny the Miami Heat from stealing home advantage and winning 100-96. More

Kevin Durant Was Not Fouled on the Last Shot

Posted on 15 Jun, 2012, by in NBA

Oklahoma City Thunder fans may be a little slow in comprehending the truth – They just lost on their home court for the first time in this postseason, and it didn’t have anything to do with the referees. Kevin Durant missed the potential game tying shot not because LeBron James fouled him. He simply missed the shot. More

Posted on 14 Jun, 2012, by in NBA

I’m willing to make this claim – If the Miami Heat win Game 2 in Oklahoma City, they’re going to win the series. But the Thunder have not lost once in this postseason at home, and the Heat’s defense has yet to figure out how to stop Kevin Durant or even slow him down. More

Kevin Durant Better Than LeBron James in Game 1 of the NBA Finals

Posted on 13 Jun, 2012, by in NBA

Kevin Durant broke loose in the fourth quarter, and there was no one on the Miami Heat team to answer back. Not LeBron James, not Dwyane Wade and not Chris Bosh. The Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Miami Heat by 18 points in the second half, taking Game 1, their first ever NBA Finals game, 105-94. More

Yesterday, we tried to take the of LeBron James and the third time lucky notion, trying to create a foreshadowing that leads to the Miami Heat winning the NBA title; LeBron picking up his first title ring.

Kevin Durant & Thunder Maintain Western Supremacy

Posted on 26 Mar, 2012, by in NBA

Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder aren’t the best team in the better NBA conference for nothing. Even with Russell Westbrook not having one of his greatest days, Durant led the Thunder to an impressive 103-87 win over the Miami Heat, who looked lost from the start in their visit to OKC. More
