In the first two games of the 2012 NBA Finals, the Miami Heat led early against the Oklahoma City Thunder. In Game 1, the Thunder fed off the energy of their home crowd and came back late to finish with a healthy lead and secure the win. In Game 2, the Heat led from wire to wire and gave OKC their first loss at home this postseason to even the series.
The Finals heads to South Beach for Game 3 on Sunday and things should be no less thrilling or intriguing as the Heat try to take a series lead in their own backyard. They'll need big contributions from their "Big 3," but after Game 2, it doesn't look like that will be a problem.
Sunday's Game 3 will tip off at 5:00 p.m. PT and will be televised nationally on ABC.
