Thunder hoping to bounce back

2012 nba finals oklahoma city thunder miami heat news

MIAMI (AP) - A questionable substitution by the coach, more foul trouble for the superstar, and bad free throw shooting by just about everybody ruined Oklahoma City's chances in Game 3 of the NBA Finals.

All that didn't wreck the Thunder's hopes of winning the series.

The Thunder trail the Miami Heat 2-1 after a 91-85 loss on Sunday in which they blew a 10-point lead in the third quarter. Kevin Durant went to the bench in foul trouble and Scott Brooks compounded the problem by yanking Russell Westbrook shortly after, both All-Stars watching when the game got away from the Thunder.

Oklahoma City was in a worse hole in the last round, dropping the first two games against the San Antonio Spurs.
