5:18 -  Oklahoma had finally tied the game after two free throws by Westbrook, they defended the Heat well in the next posession, but failed to get a basket after Fish took the ball to the paint and got it blocked, instead of passing it to an open OKC player.  Lebron made a basket and gave Miami a 92-90 lead. 

Lebron James fell down, he got up to make the last basket but can't play.

2:18 - Lebron James returned to the ball game after one minute of being down and immediately hit a three pointer, Dwyane Wade made a basket and Heat are up 99-94.

55 Secs -  OKC had a chance to tie the game, but Sefolosha's three was blocked by Wade. Heat are up 99-96.

44 Secs - With Lebron James out of the game, Mario Chalmers drove to the basket  and finished the layup over Ibaka,  Miami is up 5. Mario Chalmers has 22 huge points.

13 seconds -  After a jump ball,  the Heat had 5 seconds on the shot clock with 13 secs remaining and Russell Westbrook committed a foul thinking the clocked had reset. Mario Chalmers then made 1 out of 2 free throws and iced the game for Miami.  Russell Westbrook scored 43 points, but his awful decision making at the end cost the game for OKC.
