LeBron needs more from rest of Heat's Big 3
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- LeBron James put on the best performance he's ever had in three trips to the NBA Finals.
It will take more from the rest of Miami's Big Three for the Heat to get past the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh combined to go 11-for-30 from the field in Miami's 105-94 loss at Oklahoma City on Tuesday night, totaling 29 points to go with the 30 put up by James.
It wasn't enough as the Thunder's trio of Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and James Harden teamed up for 68 points and stormed back from 13 points down to defeat the Heat in Game 1.
The Heat did get significant scoring contributions from Shane Battier and Mario Chalmers, but 23 of their 29 points came in the first half as Miami was in control.
