Thunder Suddenly Find Themselves In Must-Win Territory

No team has come back from 3-1 down in NBA FinaTuesday night, the Miami Heat host the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 4 of the 2012 NBA Finals. With the Heat leading the series 2-1, Game 4 is vitally important to the Thunder, because no team in NBA Finals history has ever come back from a 3-1 deficit.

The erasing of a 3-1 deficit has happened eight total times in NBA postseason history, with the 2006 Phoenix Suns being the last to accomplish that feat, defeating the Los Angeles Lakers in their first round series.
