Thunder vow to fight back vs HeatPosted by Inside Hoops
Oklahoma City forward Kevin Durant has vowed to make amends for his flawed performance in the last game of the NBA finals when the Thunder square off against Miami Heat in Wednesday’s fourth game.
The three-time NBA scoring champion was restricted to 25 points, including just four in the final quarter when the pressure was really on.
He was benched in the third quarter when he earned his fourth foul, shot just two from six in the fourth, and missed two free throws as the Thunder blew a 10-point lead to lose 91-85 and trail 2-1 in the best of seven series.
“I missed a three that went in and out, I missed a few shots going to the rim,” the 23-year-old said. “But I’m going to shoot until my arm falls off in the fourth.”
