|Heat Know What to Expect from Thunder in Game 3
|MIAMI (AP) -- LeBron James and Dwyane Wade know what to expect from the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 3 of the NBA Finals.
That's because they were in the same spot a year ago.
Smarting from a Game 2 home loss in 2011, the Miami Heat went into Dallas last season and were inspired, they used the word desperate as well, from start to finish in a Game 3 victory.
The Heat will look to ensure that trend doesn't repeat itself Sunday night, when the championship series resumes on Miami's home floor.
After a day off to rest and travel, the teams resumed practice Saturday. Predictably, the moods were light around both the Thunder and the Heat, neither team seeming overly tense after splitting the first two games in Oklahoma City.
