Oklahoma City's comeback attempt against the Heat fell short in Game 2 of the NBA Finals last night, as Miami managed to even the series at one game apiece.

Kevin Durant had an opportunity to tie the game with under 10 seconds left, but missed a seven-footer. LeBron James grabbed the rebound, was fouled, and drilled his two free throws to put the game away.
