OKC at a Crossroads

Gut check time for the Thunder?

Down 2-1 to the Miami Heat after losing a hard-fought Game 3 in Miami, OKC needs to bounce back and do so fast.  This is when we see what the Oklahoma City Thunder is made of.

Look, a lot of people thought that the Thunder was robbed in Game 3.  While the officiating was downright one-sided in Miami’s favor, the Thunder still had opportunities to win.  They were out-rebounded (45-38) against the smaller Heat.  They turned over the ball in crunch time, with Kevin Durant turning it over five times.

I do not think the Heat are winning this series as much as the Thunder are losing it.  Sure LeBron James is balling and Dwyane Wade is coming out of hibernation, but let’s face it folks: if the Thunder did not blow it in the fourth quarter, they would be up 2-1 heading into tomorrow’s Game 4.

So here it is.  Tomorrow’s game will determine whether the Thunder will wrestle back home-court advantage from the Heat and make my prediction come true or will lose this series in five.  My hunch tells me that the Thunder will man-up and bounce back.

We will see…
