THE FACTS: The Miami Heat defeated the Dallas Mavericks 92-84 in Game 1 of the NBA Finals Tuesday at AmericanAirlines Arena. The Heat lead the series 1-0. Forward LeBron James led the Heat with 24 points and nine rebounds while guard Dwyane Wade added 22 points, 10 rebounds and six assists.
The Heat trailed by eight in the third quarter before turning things around. James hit an off-balanced 3-pointer at the end of the quarter to put Miami ahead by four. Miami limited the Mavericks to just 37 percent shooting, slowing star forward Dirk Nowitzki. He finished with 27 points, but shot just 7 of 18 from the field. Forward Shawn Marion added 16 points and 10 rebounds.
In a defensive battle, Miami shot poorly as well, making 38 percent from the field. The difference was the Heat's 16 offensive rebounds and 11 of 24 shooting from the 3-point arc.
QUOTABLE: "Well, again, that was a grind. It's tough. That's a very skilled offensive team. We didn't get into much of an offensive flow the entire game. This was more of probably a defensive battle."
-- Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra.
THE STAT: The Heat won the offensive rebounding battle 16-6. The second-chance points were vital in Miami overcoming a second-half deficit and staying close in the first half.
TURNING POINT: The moment Wade joined the party in the second half. After allowing James and Chris Bosh to carry the early load, Wade finished strong with seven fourth-quarter points. The Heat are fine with this as long as Wade arrives at some point. He played the same way throughout the Chicago Bulls series in the Eastern Conference finals.
QUOTABLE II: "We'll play better. I'm very certain of that. Again, we had some opportunities that, shot we normally make, they didn't go down. And so that was tough."
-- Mavs head coach Rick Carlisle.
HOT: James shot 9 of 16 from the field, but more importantly hit 4 of 5 from 3-point range. That made things difficult for the Mavs' defense and eventually opened things up for him and Wade to drive to the basket.
NOT: Nowitzki scored 27 points, but had to work hard to get them. He shot just 7 of 18 from the field, with most of his production coming from the foul line. The Mavs will need him to perform like he did in the previous two rounds to have any sort of chance.
FANTASY SPOTLIGHT: Wade finished with 22 points, 10 rebounds and six assists. Not bad for a player who was virtually a non-factor in the first half.
INSIDE THE ARENA: Jimmy Buffet, Gloria Estefan, Ludacris, Queen Latifah, Terrell Owens.
GOOD MOVE: The Heat decided to have James defense Mavs guard Jason Terry in the second half. It eliminated much of the Mavs' perimeter scoring. There was talk about James defending Nowitzki, but it never happened. It wound working because the Dallas offense was less effective in the second half.
BAD MOVE: The Mavs appeared to give up the 3-point shot. It came back to haunt them, with the Heat making 11 of 24 from behind the arc. Miami's 3-point shooting allowed it to offset its 38 percent shooting.
NOTABLE: The Heat are now 9-0 at home in the postseason ... Heat center Erick Dampier was active for the first time in the playoffs, but did not play ... The Mavs trail for the first time in a playoff series this season ...Mavs forward Caron Buter (knee) remained inactive, but coach Rick Carlisle has yet to rule him out for the series.
UP NEXT: Game 2 is Thursday at AmericanAirlines Arena at 9 p.m.

THE FACTS: The Dallas Mavericks rallied from a 15-point, fourth-quarter deficit to defeat the Miami Heat 95-93 Thursday in Game 2 of the NBA Finals at AmericanAirlines Arena. The series is now tied at 1. Dirk Nowitzki led the Mavericks with 24 points, including the winning layup with three seconds remaining. Nowitzki, playing with a torn tendon in his left middle finger, also hit a key 3-pointer in the final minute to put the Mavs ahead 93-90.
The Heat responded with a 3-pointer from guard Mario Chalmers in the corner, setting the stage for Nowitzki's final shot. Miami had one last chance, but Dwyane Wade missed a desperation 3-pointer at the buzzer.
Wade led all scorers with 36 points while forward LeBron James had 20 points and eight rebounds. The Mavs had four players in double-figures, including Shawn Marion (20 points), Jason Terry (16) and Tyson Chandler (13).
QUOTABLE: "Just hang in. Let's get some stops. Let's give ourselves a chance. Let's put some pressure on them. We really hadn't put any pressure on them at all in two games to speak of ... but by being solid and getting a couple of stops and scoring, we got some momentum and it worked out."
-- Mavs head coach Rick Carlisle.
THE STAT: Trailing 88-73, the Mavs closed the game with a 22-5 run.
TURNING POINT: A 3-pointer by Wade with 7:13 left produced the 15-point lead, but his posing in front of the Dallas bench provided a spark for the Mavs. Several Mavericks said it served as motivation for the comeback. Tyson Chandler said it was a show of disrespect and Jason Terry needed to be held back by teammates because of the excessive celebrating.
QUOTABLE II: "No question about it, that's about as tough a fourth quarter you can have. When it started to slide, it just kept on going ... We're not happy about this. Certainly the way we closed the game is so uncharacteristic for us on both ends of the court."
-- Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra.
HOT: It's unfortunate the Heat wasted Wade's best game of the postseason. He was hot from the start, but disappeared in the end. Wade finished with 36 points on 13 of 20 shooting. Most of his production came when took advantage of the mismatch of being guarded by Mavs point guard Jason Kidd.
NOT: Heat forward Chris Bosh continues to struggle in the Finals. He shot just 4 of 16 from the field, finishing with 12 points. The Mavs have put most of their focus on stopping James and Wade, but Bosh has failed to take advantage of the open shots.
FANTASY SPOTLIGHT: James finished with 20 points, eight rebounds and four assists. He shot 8 of 15 from the field, but the Heat probably need him to be more aggressive from the field.
GOOD MOVE: The Mavs did not run many set plays in the final seven minutes. Players said it allowed them to play more relaxed. It's a strategy they've used often this season when trailing, and it led to one of the greatest comebacks in Finals history.
BAD MOVE: The Heat may have gotten just a little too comfortable with that 15-point lead. It didn't help that Wade decided to showboat in front of the Mavs' bench. Dallas had more than enough fuel when you consider the Heat crowd had already begun celebrating by throwing T-shirts on the court.
NOTABLE: The loss was the Heat's first home loss in 10 playoff games this season. The Mavs are the first team to rally from a 15-point deficit in the Finals since the Chicago Bulls against the Portland Trailblazers in 1992.
UP NEXT: Game 3 is Sunday at AmericanAirlines Center at 8 p.m. on ABC.

Heat-Mavericks notebook



 


By Dave Ivey, for NBA.com
Posted Sunday June 5, 2011 11:57PM


THE FACTS: Dwyane Wade and the Heat survived a fourth-quarter push by Dirk Nowitzki, edging the Mavericks 88-86 in Game 3 on Sunday in Dallas to take a 2-1 lead in the NBA Finals. Wade scored 29 points and grabbed 11 rebounds, but Miami needed a clutch bucket from Chris Bosh and a late defensive stop by Udonis Haslem to offset Nowitzki's 34-point, 11-rebound night.


Bosh finished with 18 points and LeBron James added 17 points and nine assists. Jason Terry scored 15 off the Dallas bench. The Mavericks got 11 rebounds from Tyson Chandler and 10 assists, nine points and six boards from Jason Kidd.


History is not on the Mavericks' side. Since the NBA went to the 2-3-2 format in the Finals in 1985, 11 series were tied 1-1 entering Game 3. All 11 times, the team that seized the 2-1 lead went on to win the championship.


QUOTABLE: "That's a makeable shot, but 'UD' did a great job of keeping his chest in front of him and forcing him into a fadeaway. Nowitzki is a tough player. That shot hung up in the air about as long as it was in between Game 2 and Game 3."
--Miami head coach Erik Spoelstra on Haslem's defense against Nowitzki in the final seconds.


THE STAT: The Heat said they were going to be in "attack mode" in Game 3 and followed through on that promise. They scored 19 points off 14 Dallas turnovers and outscored the Mavericks by a 40-22 margin in the paint. Miami had at least eight dunks.


TURNING POINT: Bosh's 16-foot baseline jumper with 39.6 seconds left was the game winner and took all of the sting out of another poor shooting performance. After missing 18 of his last 22 shots in Miami, he was just 6-for-17 in Game 3 before connecting when it mattered most.


QUOTABLE II: "We were digging out of holes all night. ... It's very difficult playing from behind all the time."
--Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle, whose team made an 11-2 run to end the first half and a 17-3 run in the third quarter.


HOT: Nowitzki scored 15 in the fourth quarter, including the Mavericks' last 12 points. He did just about everything except finish the job, turning it over with 30.2 seconds left on a wild pass and missing the potential tying shot with 0.3 ticks remaining. ... Mario Chalmers was 4-for-6 from 3-point range and led Miami with 12 points off the bench.


NOT: There were lids on both baskets in a sloppy second quarter. Miami shot 27.8 percent (5-for-18) and Dallas wasn't much better at 30 percent (6-for-20). Considering Wade was 4-for-5 in the period, everyone else shot a combined 21.2 percent (7-for-33).


INSIDE THE ARENA: Troy Aikman, Terrell Owens, Pat Riley, Scottie Pippen and late-night host George Lopez were among the celebrities in the crowd.


GOOD MOVE: After watching Nowitzki blow past Bosh for the winning layup in Game 2, Miami learned its lesson. This time, Haslem defended Nowitzki straight-up in the final seconds and forced him to fire up an off-balance fadeaway near the foul line as time expired.


BAD MOVE: Instead of the Mavericks getting the final shot in the first quarter, J.J. Barea turned it over with an errant pass to Terry with 3.5 seconds left. That enabled Chalmers to sink a 36-foot heave at the buzzer and give Miami a 29-22 lead after one. As it turned out, those three points were huge.


NOTABLE: Backup Mavericks center Brendan Haywood was inactive with a strained right hip flexor, which he aggravated in Game 2. He is day-to-day. With Haywood out, seldom-used Ian Mahinmi was Chandler's primary backup and finished with five fouls, two points and one rebound in 8 minutes. ... Dallas won the rebounding battle (42-36) and blocked eight shots, including three each by Nowitzki and Chandler. ... Bosh, a Dallas native, was 0-8 in his hometown before this win. He got poked in the left eye in the first quarter and played with a swollen eyelid.


UP NEXT: Game 4 is Tuesday at the American Airlines Center in Dallas (9 p.m. ET, ABC).

LOL como se tu torcesses pelos Heat.

Esta está a ser uma série de Runs, é incrivel. Se os MAvericks estão em jogo ainda, Nowitki é o verdadeiro culpado, o homem está on-fire com aquela mão dele. Tudo o que lança entra.
