The first half of last night's game was dominated by the Heat leading by as many as 17 points, but just like what has been the case so many times in this postseason, that lead evaporated in the second half. Thanks to Kevin Durant, the Thunder stormed back to get the lead down to two with just seconds remaining. Unfortunately for the Thunder, that was as close as they would get, as Durant missed a game-tying shot attempt, due in part to a missed foul call by the officials.

With the series now shifting to the American Airlines Arena in Miami, ticket prices have started to decline for the match-up in Game 3. In just two days, the average listed price on TicketNetwork.com has dropped by $21, and it could continue to decline as the game gets closer.

Coming off of a hard-fought Eastern Conference Finals against the Boston Celtics, no one would have been surprised if the Heat started a little slow yesterday. Instead, they came out hot, taking a 54-47 lead on the well-rested Thunder into halftime. The second half, on the other hand, was a completely different story.

Thanks to Durant, the Thunder dominated the Heat in the third and fourth quarters, outscoring them 58-40. Durant finished the game with 36 points, 17 of which came in the fourth quarter. Russell Westbrook chipped in 27 points along with 11 assists and 8 rebounds, while Nick Collison came off the bench to contribute 8 points and 11 rebounds in just 21 minutes of action.

Game 2 of the series will be in OKC at the Chesapeake Energy Arena on Thursday, June 14. If you would like tickets to Game 2 or any other game during the NBA Finals, click here to view the selection available at TicketNetwork.com.

While the NBA's Eastern Conference teams are still battling it out to see who will play in their conference finals, the San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma City Thunder made quick work in their second round series, setting the stage for a Spurs-Thunder Western Conference Finals match-up.

NBA Playoffs

It shouldn't be a surprise to anyone that these are the two teams in the west left standing, as they were the two best teams in the regular season and by far the two best in the postseason. The Spurs have yet to lose in these playoffs, sweeping both of their series, and they have now won a combined 18 games in a row behind veterans Tony Parker and Tim Duncan. The Thunder are playing in their second straight Western Conference Finals, losing last year to the eventual NBA champion Dallas Mavericks. The team features scoring champion Kevin Durant as well as Sixth Man of the Year Award winner James Harden.

Staples Center

When in comes to sports, fans know that the regular season is just the warm-up for the playoffs, where everything gets ratcheted up to a new level. No where will that be more apparent than in Los Angeles this weekend when the Lakers, Clippers, and Kings all host home playoff games.

From May 17 through May 20, Staples Center in Downtown Los Angeles will be the epicenter of sports with six postseason games taking place in that span. Normally, playoff competition in L.A. is reserved for the Lakers who have 16 championships to their name, compared to zero from the Kings and Clippers. This season has been different, though, with the Clippers and Kings shedding the losing mentality that has hounded them for years.
