After a two-day break, the 2012 NBA Finals continue Sunday night as the Oklahoma City Thunder take their talents to South Beach for Game Three against the Miami Heat, who evened the series at one game apiece Thursday. Miami staved off a fierce comeback from the host Thunder, who rebounded nicely from finding themselves in an 18-2 hole to start the game, as they had the ball, trailing by two, with 13 seconds to play, only to watch as Kevin Durant's game-tying jumper attempt over LeBron James missed the mark. James made contact with Durant several times during the play, and cries of poor officiating from fans and media detracted from a thrilling contest in a Finals series that's proven simply fantastic through its first 96 minutes.
