Miami Heat's Chris Bosh dunks on Oklahoma City Thunder's Serge Ibaka in game 2 of 2012 NBA Finals

*(Via ESPN) – LeBron James needed some help, Dwyane Wade and Chris Boshprovided it.

The Miami Heat finally rediscovered the formula to winning in the NBA Finals with a 100-96 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday night.

James had another Finals career high with 32 points, Wade rebounded from a poor opener to add 24 and the Heat built a huge early lead before holding off a furious fourth-quarter rally behind their three All-Stars to beat the Thunder, tying the series at one game apiece.

Bosh had 16 points and 15 rebounds in his return to the starting lineup for the Heat, who snapped a four-game Finals losing streak with their first victory since Game 3 against Dallas last year.

“It’s been so long since we’ve had them all together,” Heat forward Shane Battier said. “They played like the All-Stars that they are and that’s the effort that we need.”

Now they go home to host Game 3 on Sunday and the next two after that, knowing they don’t have to hear the noisy Thunder fans again — not to mention all their critics — if they win all three.
