Kendrick Perkins: A. Another day, a different Thunder big man stepping up. Perkins outscored James Harden (10-9) and outrebounded Chris Bosh (12-11). Perk also had no turnovers and was part of the Thunder's solid halfcourt defense.
3-point shooting: D. The Thunder made just four of 18 3-pointers. Worse yet, the Thunder went 0-for-8 after Derek Fisher's four-point play with 4:33 left in the third quarter. Hard to build much momentum without 3-pointers.
Rebounding: B. The Thunder allowed Miami 11 offensive rebounds in the first half but only three in the second half. LeBron had five offensive boards total, but Perkins had six. When a team misses 48 shots, as the Heat did, it's going to get some second chances. Rebounding did not cost the Thunder this game.
