Thunder learn lessons in defeat
Oklahoma City has lots of room for improvement (PER Diem: April 5, 2012)
It was the basketball version of a perfect storm: the most anticipated matchup of the season managing somehow, some way to live up to the hype and then some. Heat-Thunder was the best game of this regular season; so good, in fact, that a heated Lakers-Clippers battle that followed was reduced to agate treatment.
