So far, this has all the makings of a great NBA Finals series. In Game 1, the Oklahoma City Thunder turned up the defensive pressure and sacrificed some offense (James Harden) for some defense (Thabo Sefalosha) and in the process were able to slow Dwyane Wade.
The Miami Heat, for their part, is going to have to come up with a better plan for containing Russell Westbrook's destructive drives. Chris Bosh, who was huge for the Heat in Game 7 against Boston, will also need to dominate his match ups.
Game 2: Thursday, June 14 at Oklahoma City at 9:00 p.m. ET / 6:00 p.m. PT on ABC
