LeBron James prayed for his first championship right before the Heat and Thunder battled in Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night. The three-time MVP came out aggressive from the opening tip. Kevin Durant, though, did his best to keep his team in the game. The Durantuala netted a game-high 32. But there was nothing he could do to cool off the Heat. James set-up Mike Miller for one of his seven threes, later he found Chris Bosh for a triple that put Miami up by 22 in the third. The Heat knocked down 14-of-26 three-points as Miami had four guys score 20-plus points. Dwyane Wade chipped in with 20 points and 8 boards. However, the man of the hour was King James. LeBron became only the seventh player in NBA history to record two triple-doubles in the Finals. James finished with 26 points, 13 assists and 11 rebounds as the Heat crushed the Thunder 121-106 to capture the franchise's second NBA championship. The "Chosen One" silenced all of his critics by earning his first NBA title and the Finals MVP award.
