Down 3-1 to Heat, Thunder vow to keep fighting
MIAMI (AP) — Down 3-1 in the NBA Finals, history says the Oklahoma City Thunder aren't coming back.
Nobody have ever rallied from that deficit in the NBA Finals. Then again, few have erased a 2-0 deficit in any playoff series, and the Thunder did that just one round ago when they charged past the San Antonio Spurs.
So don't write off the Thunder just yet.
Kevin Durant says they are "going to keep fighting to the end," starting with Game 5 on Thursday night against the Miami Heat. If the Thunder win, they would get the series back to Oklahoma City, where they are 9-1 this postseason.
