It was one fo the interesting questions coming into Game 1: Both the Heat and Mavericks had dominated late in games in the playoffs. That’s why both had advanced, both executed under pressure. So who would win the battle when they faced off.

LeBron James and Dywane Wade would. We should have guessed that.

The two of them made plays down the stretch — and combined on an ally-oop — to give the Heat their 92-84 win and a 1-0 lead in the series. Watch for yourself as they take over late.

    Zzzzzz-zzzzzzzzzzz! I’m going to try and get the NBA to license the video rights to last nights first three quarters and market it to insomniacs. If this is “championship basketball”, I’d hate to see what the levels below this are like!

        Only a hater of boring sports events. I don’t watch outdoor soccer or synchronized swimming competitions, but I have to believe that they rate right up there with last nights BOR-ING NBA final game… and that goes for BOTH teams!

    Its a joy to watch the Heat play, the Big3 are ballers. high ball IQ and effect game in so many dif ways.

    Love watching the defense ignite the offense.

      I guess if you’re a Heat Honk I can see where you may have found last nights stinker of a game somewhat interesting, but watching paint dry or grass grow are equally interesting to suffering through watching multi-millionaire basketball players not be able to put the damned ball through the hoop!

      Nowitzski according to the box score had 27 points, but if that’s correct, they had to be the most laborious 27 points ever put up in an NBA final.
