Heat up 3-1 after comeback win in NBA finals game four

7:09 pm on 20 June 2012

The Miami Heat are in the box seat for their second NBA basketball title after coming from behind at home to win game four against the Oklahoma City Thunder 104-98.

For the first time in the finals the Thunder came out of the blocks stronger, dominating the first quarter to lead by 14 points - but the Heat won the next three quarters, largely thanks to a breakout 25-point performance from guard Mario Chalmers.

LeBron James shot a go-ahead three pointer with less than three minutes left despite severe leg cramps and says the way Miami finished proves they're more than just their much-vaunted Big Three.

Guard Russell Westbrook scored 43 points in a losing effort for Oklahoma.

The Heat now lead the best-of-seven finals series by three games to one - a position that no side has ever lost from.

Game five is on Friday, also in Miami.
