LeBron James won his first title after performing well against the Thunder on this day in 2012
LeBron James won the triple-double and his first NBA championship. He led the Miami Heat to defeat the Oklahoma City Thunder 121-106.
Miami’s “Big Three” ranks first among Oklahoma City’s “Big Three”. After the Thunder won the first game, the Heat won four consecutive games.
James is done 26 points, 13 assists and 11 rebounds. Chris Bosh scored 24 points, and Dwyane Wade scored 20 points. Miami also received a boost from Mike Miller, who scored 23 points on the bench.
Kevin Durant performed well in the Thunder, ending the game with 32 points and 11 rebounds. Russell Westbrook and James Harden each scored 19 points.
The Heat are much more efficient than the Thunder. Miami shot 40-77 and Oklahoma City shot 36-87.
After three quarters, the Heat led 95-71 and won.
Despite the success of Oklahoma City, they decided to trade Harden to the Houston Rockets after this season. Since 2012, they have not returned to the NBA Finals, and any members of the “Big Three” no longer stay in the team.
For Miami, James was named the finals MVP. In the following season, he led them to another championship and won the finals MVP for the second consecutive time.
