Scared now?

Maybe you should be. Maybe the NBA Finals are as simple as Kevin Durant wrenching the torch as the game's best from LeBron James. Maybe this series is as clear as Durant taking over when a night searches for someone to take it.

For so long in Game 1 on Tuesday night, the show America came to see was muffled inside the larger show. LeBron was having a nice night. Durant was having a respectable night. No headlines. No fireworks.

But then the fourth quarter began and Durant's star ascended with it in Oklahoma City's 105-94 win against the Heat.
