The NBA Finals tipped off last night as the Miami Heat traveled to one of the loudest arenas in the league to take on the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Heat were off and running in the 1st half, but the Thunder mounted a comeback and began to pull away from the Heat as Kevin Durant scored 17 of his 36 points in the 4th quarter and Russell Westbrook heated up and finished with 27 points and 11 dimes as the dynamic due outscored the Heat all by themselves 41-40 to notch the victory 105-94 in Game 1 of the NBA Finals. And of course, the water cooler talk will be about LeBron James’ meekly 5 points in the 4th quarter. Also, Westbrook is the first player since Charles Barkley to score at least 25 points, 8 boards and 10 assists in an NBA Finals. Game 2 is scheduled to tip off on Thursday at 9pm EST.

In sporting news, after surrounding a house the police thought contained Desmonte Leonard, who allegedly fatally wounded three men, two of whom played for Auburn last season and wounded another current Auburn, turned himself in late Tuesday night. The family of Leonard reached out to defense attorney Susan James to facilitate the turn in, who contacted the U.S. Marshalls to assist and Leanord peacefully turned himself in on the steps of the courthouse. Leonard will have his first court appearance today and is charged with three counts of capital murder among other pending charges. More on this story as it develops as according to James, the defense attorney, “when the full story is told, it may sound different than the perception now.”
