Dallas Mavericks free agent point guard Jason Kidd hasn't telephoned Oklahoma City forward Kevin Durant offering any advice on how to beat the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals.

But Kidd did say: "I've congratulated Durant each time they've clinched and wished them well.''

The Thunder trail the Heat, 2-1, in the best-of-seven series, which resumes Tuesday at 8 p.m. in Miami. The situation for the Thunder is similar to the Mavs, who trailed the Heat, 2-1, in last year's NBA Finals before Dallas recovered and won Games 4 and 5 at home, then clinched the series with a Game 6 victory in Miami.
