From the plains of Oklahoma to the sands of South Beach, Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder sent a loud and clear message to Miami as Durant scored 28 points and led his Thunder teammates to a 103-87 win over the Heat. Durant just missed a triple-double with nine rebounds and eight assists to go with those game-high 28 points. As big a night as Durant had, OKC's big men, Kendrick Perkins and Serge Ibaka, were even more impressive. Ibaka had 19 points on 8-for-10 shooting and 10 rebounds. Perkins had a season-high 16 points on 8-for-11. James Harden added 19 on 6-for-7 shooting. Miami's Big Three led the Heat in both points and turnovers. Dwyane Wade led Miami with 22 points but also six turnovers. Chris Bosh had 18 points and five givebacks and LeBron James continues to struggle with his shot, scoring 17 points on 8-for-18 shooting. James turned the ball over four times. OKC's defense held the Heat to just 33.3 percent shooting in the decisive fourth quarter.
