Durant's 32 paces Thunder past Heat

"You've got to take your hat off to that kid," Heat forward Quentin Richardson said. "He's 6-foot-11 and playing like a 2 guard. That's a tough cover for anybody in the NBA, as tall as he is, as quick as he is, and he has an unbelievable jump shot."

Miami made its run, largely coinciding with Durant not scoring for the final 4:46 of the half. The Heat scored 13 of the final 19 points of the second quarter, closing to 45-42 at the break.

But the third quarter, all Oklahoma City again.

Westbrook had nine in the period, Durant had eight more and the Heat opened by shooting 4 of 12 from the floor. Another big run - the 14-2 spurt - did most of the damage, as Oklahoma City stretched a tenuous 51-48 edge into a 65-50 lead, and held that 15-point margin at 74-59 entering the fourth.

Miami was never closer than eight from there.

Notes

Charge? Block? How about both? Green and O'Neal were both called for fouls 1 minute after tipoff, when officials apparently had trouble deciding if Green was guilty of charging or O'Neal guilty of blocking. "Ain't never heard that before," Wade announced, before the teams had a jump ball at midcourt to decide possession. ... The Thunder had six players with two fouls in the first half, while the Heat only had seven total fouls in the opening 24 minutes. ... O'Neal and Westbrook were called for technicals after a minor skirmish late in the first half. ... Miami's Udonis Haslem left with under 2 minutes remaining to get his strained left shoulder checked. He is expected to play in Atlanta.
