This was going to hurt. But then again, it hurt all season. What was one more night?
So Mike Miller lifted his body off the bench, then hoisted the Heat onto his aching back, nailing three-pointer after three-pointer, not stopping until he was able to lift one more thing: the Larry O’Brien trophy.
Miller finished with 23 points Thursday night to spark the Heat to a 121-106 victory over Oklahoma City in the clinching Game 5 of the NBA Finals.
He made 7 of 8 three-point attempts, one shy of Ray Allen’s Finals record for 3-pointers made.
