Miami took the commanding 3-1 lead in this NBA Finals series off their 104-98 home win against the Thunder as a -3 point favorite. The game went over 192 ½ points. Much like we have written the Heat’s experience and loss in the finals last year will motivate this club in this series and will take nothing for granted. Also when you start to look at the Thunder on the road this season and you look at the wins and losses you see the Thunder struggle against upper echelon teams. One major reason why the Heat is in the drivers seat is the fact Oklahoma City was beating up on Western conference teams with star players way past their prime. In the NBA Finals the Thunder is finally facing a club in the playoffs with their superstars in their prime. Lebron James continued his NBA Finals MVP cause with 26 points and 12 rebounds on 10 of 20 shooting in the game four win. Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant had 71 of the Thunders 98 points. Derek Fisher somehow continues to get undeserving time in this Finals with 22 worthless minutes in defeat. Like we said prior to game four if Fisher is getting major minutes the Thunder is in deep trouble here. His few moments of offense is not worth the liability he possesses to OKC on the defensive end of the court.
