Just like last season, the Miami Heat have taken a two games to one lead in the NBA Finals after beating the Oklahoma City Thunder 91-85 on Sunday night. Of course, last season the Heat went on to lose the next three games to Mavericks and lose the series overall. They hope they will have a very different outcome this year.

The Heat did not play their best game last night, shooting only 38 percent from the field, but they did do one thing well: shoot free throws. The team went to the line 35 times, making an unbelievable 31 of them. On the flip side, the Oklahoma City Thunder went to the free throw line just 24 times, making only 15. That's a 16-point difference, which was undeniably the difference in the game.

Although the series is just starting to heat up, the average ticket prices listed on TicketNetwork.com have started to drop. The most substantial difference is seen in Thursday night's Game 5 in Miami, where the average listed price for tickets has dropped more than 37% since last Friday. Tuesday's Game 4 also has had a large drop in price, decreasing by more than 20%.

Game 4 will take place Tuesday, June 19. If you would like tickets to Game 4 or any other game during the NBA Finals, click here to view the selection available at TicketNetwork.com.

There were a lot of big discussions this week, and it was difficult to choose only three. So you get an extra one this week!

LA Kings

They did it! After waiting a long 45 years, the LA Kings have clinched the Stanley Cup. Here's a team that, very early this year was practically on nobody's radar. Then they started winning a lot of games and that got people interested. The Kings' ascension has shined an even more powerful spotlight on Los Angeles, as the city of the stars is usually only well known for the Lakers. Will the Kings make LA a sports haven to rival some of those on the east coast? I guess we'll have to wait until next year to find out.

Dallas

How long will it be until we're asking, "Who shot John Ross?" The classic TV drama Dallas is back after 21 years off the air. The show, a continuation of the old one, centers around J.R. and Bobby's sons, John Ross and Christopher, and promises to re-ignite the old family rivalry that made the original series popular. J.R. and Bobby are also back, and played by their original actors.

Lance Armstrong

Lance Armstrong is in the news again, and not for anything good. The seven-time winner of the Tour de France risks having every one of the titles stripped from him and being banned from cycling if it is proven that blood samples from 2009 and 2010 show evidence of doping. Armstrong denies the allegations, and is currently trying to clear his name.

NBA Finals

Should the ref have called a foul on LeBron James? That's the mini-controversy to come out of last night's Oklahoma City Thunder-Miami Heat game. The lack of a whistle from the officials, as expected by Kevin Durant of the Thunder, robbed the team of a chance to tie up the score at the free-throw line. In the end, the Heat won, 100-96. Check out more of our coverage on the final series: Game 1; Game 2.

That's it. Have a good weekend, everybody!

After getting outplayed on Tuesday night, the Miami Heat came out on fire in Game 2 and took down the Oklahoma City Thunder to tie the series at one game apiece. The series now heads to Miami for the next three games.

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.
