Round 1...Young Guns

Despite a slow start for the Oklahoma City Thunder, they got on track in just enough to time to pull away from the Miami Heat in game 1 of the NBA Finals.

If you thought OKC would've been rattled or had any jitters, you were wrong. Maybe in the opening minutes of the game, that was all. The Thunder eased their way back into the game and eventually took the lead and never let it go. Kevin Durant was just....sensational. There were points in the game yesterday when I just watched him. You would think, well you would be watching him anyway. What I mean is, I only watched him. I watched everything he did on the offensive and defensive end. Kevin is a silent leader.He doesnt say much, but he is a leader. When things werent looking good for some stretches in the first half yesterday, you could look at him and see how calm he was. He picked his spots to score and when it was money time in the 4th quarter, KD turned into the Durantula.

KD finished with 36 points, 8 rebounds, and 4 assists. All this while shooting 60% from the field and 50% from the 3 point line. Russell Westbrook flirted with a triple double by droppin 27 points, 11 assists, and 8 rebounds, and only 2 turnovers. The scary part about OKC winning this game is that, 6th Man of the Year James Harden only had 5 points. If he gets rolling, along with KD and Westbrook, this could be a long series for the Heat. Game 2 is tomorrow night at 9:00 on ABC.
