Thunder Vs. Heat, 2012 NBA Finals Game 5: Miami Blowing Out OKC, 1 Quarter To Title

It was not a good start to the second half for the Miami Heat as the Oklahoma City Thunder cut a double-digit lead to just two possessions early on, but the quarter finished in amazing fashion. The Heat pushed their lead to as much as 25 points and finished the quarter up 95-71. Another huge offensive quarter on both the inside and from behind the arc simply blew the Thunder off the floor.

Miami is shooting 57 percent from the behind the arc, and it was once again Mike Miller, Shane Battier, and Mario Chalmers getting in on the act. Miller is five of six from long range and has 17 points. But even with all the hot shooting, Chris Bosh leads all Miami scorers with 22 points. LeBron James continues to facilitate the offense, hitting all these shooters for their wide-open threes. James already has a double-double with 19 points and 11 boards. He's now just 12 minutes from his first title.
