    Miami's LeBron James is guarded by Oklahoma City's Thabo Sefolosha (2) o during the Heat's 100-96 victory over the Thunder in Thursday night's Game 2 of the NBA Finals.

OKLAHOMA CITY -- LeBron James scored 32 points and hit the clinching free throws with 7 seconds left, Dwyane Wade added 24 points and the Miami Heat claimed home-court advantage in the NBA Finals by beating the Oklahoma City Thunder 100-96 in Game 2 on Thursday night.
The Thunder stormed back from a 13-point, fourth-quarter deficit and had a chance to tie it on Kevin Durant's 7-footer along the left baseline with 10 seconds left. James provided the defense on the shot and rebounded the miss before getting fouled and hitting two clutch free throws.
Durant finished with 32 points and Russell Westbrook had 27 but the Thunder weren't able to overcome a double-digit deficit.
The series is tied at a game apiece heading into Game 3 on Sunday night in Miami.
