The Miami Heat couldn't stop the Oklahoma City Thunder's downpour

The Miami Heat couldn't stop the Oklahoma City Thunder's downpour

Russell Westbrook recorded his 25th triple-double of the season, finishing with 23 points, 18 rebounds and 13 assists, while Paul George led the way with 27 points.

Oklahoma City will need to be careful to avoid the red-hot Rockets, if they should fall to eighth place in the season finale, but judging by Russell Westbrook's personal history with Kevin Durant, it's unlikely he'll make the call to lose on objective against the Warriors, even if it is in the regular season. OKC knocked off Miami 115-93 to clinch. We wanted to come off the road trip 2 & 0 and we did that.

The 27-point margin was the third-worst for any quarter in Heat history, and the worst ever in a game at Miami.

The Miami Heat and the Oklahoma City Thunder face a conundrum for tonight's game against each other, with the possibility of losing this game turning beneficial for either end.

Jerami Grant scored 17 points and Carmelo Anthony added 11 for Oklahoma City, which made 14 3-pointers.

"Feels good to be back in the postseason and the mindset of not looking forward to another vacation", Anthony said.

Josh Richardson scored 18 points and Hassan Whiteside added 16 for the Heat, whose playoff seed won't be decided until the season-finales Wednesday. Tyler Johnson and Justise Winslow each finished with 12 points.

Westbrook, needing 34 rebounds over his last two games to average a triple-double for the second consecutive season, finished with 23 points, 18 rebounds and 13 assists as the Thunder (47-34) went on a 21-2 run to close out the game. However, Alex Abrines left the game with concussion symptoms.

Heat: Miami outscored Oklahoma City 58-32 in the paint. The Heat didn't attack enough, (as evidenced by 14 free throw attempts) and couldn't find the shooting stroke from long range (going 5-for-22 from 3).

Heat guard Dwyane Wade was presented with the NBA Cares Community Assist Award for March, recognizing his response to the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Coach K was one of three accomplished college coaches at the game; Rick Pitino was also there, near Donovan - who played guard on Providence's 1987 Final Four team (coached by Pitino), and a two-time NCAA title victor at Florida before going to Oklahoma City.
