The Miami Heat can capture their second NBA title in franchise history Thursday with a victory against the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game Five of the 2012 NBA Finals. After losing the first game of the Finals, Miami has rallied to win three straight and stands on the verge of upsetting the Thunder.

In Game Four, the Heat got 76 combined points from LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Mario Chalmers to pull off a 104-98 win. That effort helped ensure Russell Westbrook's dazzling performance went for naught. The Oklahoma City point guard scored 43 points, grabbed seven rebounds, and dished five assists in his 45 minutes.

Game Five between OKC and Miami tips at 9 Eastern on ABC.
