Friday's loss is likely just the beginning of a painful summer for the Oklahoma City Thunder The Miami Heat bet big on Hassan Whiteside. And ESPN's moniker of "LeBronto" should serve as a perpetual reminder that they won't get out of the Eastern Conference so long as he occupies it.

Their beloved team had every opportunity to put up the "W" in this game only to find a way to lose out in the end. The Raptors would pull within 13 points on a basket by Valanciunas midway through the period, but had zero answers for James who was scoring seemingly at will.
