Video: Dirk Nowitzki’s game winner

Miami had a 15 point lead in this game because of their defense.

But after they went up 15 they took their foot off the gas when Dallas got focused. You can see it all on this play — Dirk Nowitzki‘s game winning shot.

The Heat have a foul to give (Nowitzki said he started his move early expecting the foul) but Chris Bosh never uses it. Udonis Haslem hesitates to come over and is too late when he does. LeBron James does not help off Jason Terry in the corner. And if you make those kind of mistakes against Dirk, you lose.

In the end, Nowitzki made a shot with his “bad” left hand.

    I love how D-Wade fell down like a chump at the end. Always trying to get that foul call. Hollywood as hell.
