OKLAHOMA CITY - The Oklahoma City Thunder finally faced a deficit even Kevin Durant couldn't rescue them from.

Another slow start put Oklahoma City down 16 almost from the start, and even Durant's 16-point fourth quarter wasn't enough to rally the Thunder back in a 100-96 loss to the Miami Heat in Game 2 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night.

In a postseason filled with thrilling comebacks, Oklahoma City lost its grip on home-court advantage by losing at home for the first time this postseason.

Oklahoma City had already rallied from double-digit deficits four other times during the playoffs, but this time the comeback came up short. The Heat charged out to an 18-2 lead as Oklahoma City missed 12 of its first 13 shots, and the Thunder never were able to take the lead.

The next three games will be played in Miami, with Game 3 on Sunday night.
