(Kevin) Durant had hit the Heat, hit them so hard and fast they hadn’t seen it coming. A closer look at that seemingly modest 15-9 run — with 11 points from Durant — told the story of how Durant and the Thunder wore the Heat down. Miami’s rotation shrank to only six players who logged all but 12:13 of the game, and it showed.
“We’re going to have to have more guys in there to give me and (Dwyane) D-Wade a rest,” said (LeBron) James, who finished with 30 points.
Durant’s dunk with 8:30 left came off Nick Collison’s steal of a pass by James, and Durant simply beat James down the floor in transition. Beat him badly. Both Durant and James played nearly 46 minutes, but only one of them had his legs. That run-out dunk was the closest James came to guarding Durant during the Thunder’s deciding run.
