NBA Finals 2012: Oklahoma City Thunder Vs Miami Heat Game 3 Highlights (1-2)

The Oklahoma City Thunder have lost against the Miami Heat in Game 4 of the NBA Finals. It has been a nerve-wrecking series for especially the Thunder so far. After four games, a 3-1 scoreboard now looms over their heads.

The post-1985 Finals history is a testament to the fact that no team has ever overcome this 3-1 curse to win the championship. Ever since 1985, when NBA took on the 2-3-2 format, every team that took a 3-1 lead has been victorious.

Charles Barkley, Chris Mullin and Jalen Rose, all NBA champs, have unanimously said the series is over. The only people who share a different point of view are the Thunder.

According to Newsok, Kevin Durant said, “We know that it's a new day and anything can happen. It's not over. You got to keep fighting and we're going to fight to the end no matter what.”

Durant further said, “That's the type of DNA we have here. That's Oklahoma City as a city, Oklahoma as a state and the Thunder as a team. We're going to fight to the end.”

It’s going to be very tough from here. All the team players and the coach, Scott Brooks, realize that.

“It's not about numbers,” Brooks was quoted as saying. “It's about how hard you're willing to work, how much heart and desire you put forth and how you do it together collectively as a team. We have a group of guys that do that night in and night out.”

It should be noted that many were of the opinion that the Thunder were done and out in the Western Conference Finals. They were down with a 2-0 in that series, but came back strongly and became only the third team in NBA history to win four straight games in the conference finals. How they managed to do that? The answer was very simple as put by Russell Westbrook, who said, “Staying together. Just keep fighting, keep going at it. Keep coming in and working every day. I think that's what we did. Watch film, learn from our mistakes, what we need to do to win the game and that helped us out.”
