If you are a fan of the Miami Heat, you probably shared Ty Lawson’s frustration. Kevin Durant picked up a silly fifth foul with over 10 minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, but Scott Brooks left him in the game due to the magnitude of the situation. Lucky for him, the Heat did not consistently try to get Durant out of the game with a sixth foul, giving him the chance to shine once again, and did he ever. Durant went off for 16 of his 32 points in the fourth quarter, hitting one clutch shot after another – some of them rather Jordan-esque. He had one final chance to tie the game with a shot over LeBron James, who fell asleep on the play and appeared to commit a foul, but no whistle was blown. The shot with about 10 seconds remaining hit the front of the iron, giving Miami the much needed victory to tie the series at one game apiece.
