The Miami Heat were able to steal a win in Oklahoma City against the Thunder in Game 2 to tie the NBA Finals series and will be looking to go up 2-1 tonight as the scene shifts to Miami.

He is averaging 30.8 points, 9.5 rebounds, 5.1 assists in 42.6 minutes per game for Miami and looks like he might garner Finals MVP honors should the Heat win the title.
