The NBA Finals 2012 Game 2 will tip off at 9 p.m. ET Thursday night, and Miami Heat will be looking to level the series following their Game 1 loss. The game can be watched live on TV on the ABC network, or alternatively online through live steam from 9 p.m. (details below).
In Game 1 the Heat were looking strong, taking the lead early on and being 13 points clear at one point. However, they faded away and the Thunder slowly ate away at that lead, and overturned it going into the back end of the game. In the end Oklahoma won Game 1 easily to give them good momentum going into tonight's game.
Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook led the Thunder's sublime comeback, and Miami seemed to have no response to counteract them. Miami were guilty of some diabolical defense at times, and showed indiscipline when put under pressure. They will have to get their game together in Game 2 if they are to turn things around and come back into this series.
Miami will be focused on not falling away in the second half of the game like they did in Game 1, and will be looking to maintain their intensity until the game is finished this time. The Heat will look to LeBron James to inspire them, and he was one of their stand out players in Game 1. But he will need greater support from his teammates if they are to stand up against Durant and a talented Thunder team.
