Miami Heat pip Oklahoma City to level NBA finals
LeBron James scored 32 points and Chris Bosh had 16 points on his return to the starting line-up as the Miami Heat beat Oklahoma City 100-96 to level the NBA finals at one game apiece.
Forward Bosh, starting his first game since the middle of May, also grabbed 15 boards while guard Dwyane Wade rebounded from a poor performance in game one to finish with 24 points and five assists in Thursday’s wire-to-wire win.
James was pleased with the way his teammates held it together late in the game when Oklahoma City made one final push for the win. “We’ve been through a lot in the playoffs. We have been down, we have withstood rallies,” said James, who was a perfect 12-for-12 from the free-throw line.
