Kevin Durant really needs to avoid foul trouble in these Finals -- he's been drastically restrained in the closing quarters of the past two games due to setting off the referees' whistles one too many times. LeBron James hasn't quite had that issue, especially in last night's 91-85 win in Miami. The Thunder have looked like a team that could run roughshod over the Heat, but they've fallen apart since their stellar performance in Game 1. Is it an issue with Durant and his teammates, or is there a problem on the bench?


Who's to blame?

There's enough blame to go around for the Thunder -- from Durant's foul trouble to James Harden's inability to score.

Harden or Battier?

These Finals were supposed to be a showcase for James Harden's offensive talents, but he's been outscored by an unlikely candidate.
