08:15 AM ET 06.15 | Game 2 felt nearly over quickly, and a nice rally in the second half couldn't obscure the fact Oklahoma City was down 18-2 and 25-8 Thursday night. [The story] was the first five minutes of the game, when the Thunder fell and couldn't get up. Why did they fall? Well, Russell Westbrook is why. ... He was hyper. Distracted. Erratic, out of control. He was doing the one thing he does when he's playing poorly -- he was playing too fast, and this is a guy whose speed is one of his greatest attributes. ... [Playing too fast is] his worst quality. He is so quick that he can get any shot he wants, whenever he wants it, but he hasn't learned the discretion to choose wisely. And he chose poorly in the first few minutes of Game 2.

Well looky here....someone FINALLY showed some sort of clutch gene. Sure wasn't the idiot in the picture above, but LBJ came through when OKC clawed back into the game.

Brook will adjust. They will bounce back. Guarding Shane Battier is the key

Hats off to the Heat. They played well. It looks like it will be great series -- at least 6 games.

I just don't understand it.....two straight games of letting Shane Battier burn you. Dude is seriously channeling his inner Ray Allen.

The Heat were just better last night. That still won't stop people from crying about the refs again.The fouls were 22-21. Find a different excuse.

True...but that last shot by Durant was a clear foul on Lebron. Very surprised Durant couldn't get that one at home of all places.

King LeClutch showed up. Now Spo is a great coach because the big 3 attacked more and settled for jumper less.

Who said anything about Spo being a good coach? That dude is awful....

Here you go again Ghostown Jr! They missed many calls and it's not only fouls. LeChoke traveled twice and he didn't get called for it. They freaking miss the last 2 fouls tha he made on Durant and Westbrook and I know you were blind to see any of them. What's wrong w/ having the game officiated correctly? That's all we're asking but you sure don't care about that because that's the only way your Heatles is winning.

The refs really blew it on Lebron's crab dribble again.

Good morning all. What a terrible game OKC played in the 1st quarter last night. Can't win if shots and layups aren't falling. The no-call foul in the last few seconds would not have been a big deal if OKC had played better in the other 47 minutes of the game! LOL
