Nuggets from my notebook from Thursday's Game 5 loss at Miami.
- In hindsight, this feels like the inevitable outcome. It feels like the Heat were destined to be atop the podium at the end of this series, while the Thunder was bound to wait its turn at least one more time. That's just how things go in the NBA. The Heat had been here and had the painful memory to know how to not go out the same way it did a year ago. All throughout this series, again, looking back, the Thunder did just seem happy to be here.
