2012 NBA Finals, Heat Vs. Thunder Game 5: Game TIme, TV Schedule And More

The Miami Heat can close out the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday night and finally pick up an NBA title.


The Miami Heat are just one game away from picking up their first NBA championship with "The Big Three." The Oklahoma City Thunder started out by dominating the Heat early in the game, but Miami was able to rally back and eventually pull away with the win. LeBron James had another nice game and Dwyane Wade got hot late and held everything together as LeBron was dealing with some cramps.

The Thunder will certainly be looking for answers on Thursday night, given the fact that the Thunder gave away a big lead they typically don't do. The Thunder are usually the team storming back from a double-digit lead, not losing them. Oklahoma City will need another great game from Russell Westbrook and for Kevin Durant to stay out of foul trouble if they want to stave off elimination.
