Miami has gone 2-1 up in the NBA finals against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Game three was a topsy-turvy affair, with both sides having sizeable leads, only for the Heat to clinch victory by six.
With the NBA finals shifting to Miami for the first time, LeBron James' pep talk had the Heat ready to go.
The home-side's first 18 points all came from their "big three" – James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.
But the Thunder had a much-improved start from the first two games and were down by just 47-46 at halftime.
You can't get bigger than a four-point play, and an effort by Derek Fisher saw the Thunder up by 10.
The defence was big from both sides, but the Heat still went on a 15-3 run to be ahead 69-67.
Durrant, who had missed much of the third quarter with foul trouble, immediately made his mark in the fourth.
But James would have the final say. He made two critical plays to see the Heat home, 91-85.
With a personal haul of 29 points, LeBron James had lived up to his pre-match hype.
