  1. LeBron, Wade able to share “alpha dog” role just fine

    Jun 6, 2011, 1:38 PM EDT

    Heat's James congratulates Wade after scoring against the Mavericks during fourth quarter in Game 2 of the NBA Finals in Miami

    Because some people just need to criticize LeBron James no matter what he does, there were ridiculous columns out about LeBron James shrinking from the spotlight after the Heat won Game 3. Questions LeBron just shot down in his press conference. But, this situation in Miami is different than what we saw with the Lakers…

    Dallas Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki (C) drives through Miami Heat's Udonis Haslem (L) and Chris Bosh (R) during Game 3 of the NBA Finals basketball series in Dallas

    At the end of Game 2 it was Chris Bosh on Dirk Nowitzki, at the end of Game 3 it was Udonis Haslem. The different outcomes are not all that simple, but it’s a big difference to start with. Good on Ekpe Udoh, who has returned to Oklahoma to work with victims of recent tornadoes.…

  3. Video: Chris Bosh drains game winner

    Jun 6, 2011, 9:37 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Three

    Miami has gotten in trouble this series when they have gone to LeBron James or Dwyane Wade in isolation. When it became hero ball as they tried to knock down the long jumper or drove headlong into the teeth of the defense. And in the biggest moment of the series you wondered if they may…

  4. Chris Bosh returns home to Dallas looking to spoil party

    Jun 5, 2011, 2:59 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    Dallas has already made this series uncomfortable for Chris Bosh. Primarily covered by Tyson Chandler, Bosh has struggled, as Tom Haberstroh detailed at ESPN. This isn’t just a product of missing midrange jumpers. While he’s shot just 3-for-11 this series on long 2s, the real issue is the chip shots around the basket. Inside 10…

  5. Video: Heat, Mavericks Talk About Game 3

    Jun 4, 2011, 9:07 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    Game 2 ended in as dramatic a fashion as any NBA finals game ever. But can the Mavericks carry that momentum over, or did the Heat just take their foot off the gas? Heat players didn’t talk about the stagnant offense at the end of the game, they talked about being flat on defense. At…

  6. What’s on their mind Saturday: Miami Heat

    Jun 4, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    Whoops. That didn’t go how the Heat planned, I’m betting. So Saturday at Heat practice, Erik Spoelstra has to regroup the Heat mentally and emotionally to prepare them for a Game 3 that’s pretty much insanely important. (“OMG NO TEAM HAS EVER WON/LOST THE FINALS AFTER LOSING/WINNING GAME 3 IN A 2-3-2 FORMAT AFTER SPLITTING…

  7. When Dallas got hot, Heat made host of bad decisions

    Jun 3, 2011, 11:24 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    Give Dallas credit — this is not their first massive comeback these playoffs. They are in the finals because they executed better at the end of games better than any team in the West. This is a veteran team that does not easily fluster and they started running a fantastic staggered screen for Jason Terry…

  8. How Bryan Colangelo set up the NBA Finals

    I don’t have much to add to this article from Sir Charles In Charge’s Andrew Ungvari — I’m just going to recognize that it’s some excellent investigative work and deserves to be read in full. Basically, Ungvari did some homework, and figured out that both Miami and Dallas’ big roster moves can be traced back…

  9. NBA Playoffs: Dallas looks to rebound. Literally.

    Jun 2, 2011, 1:38 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade goes up for a basket against the Dallas Mavericks during the second half in Game 1 of the NBA Finals basketball series in Miami

    Dallas learned some hard lessons and was asked some hard questions in their Game 1 loss in the NBA finals. What do they have to do to rebound from that and even their series with the Heat? Rebound. Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said “rebound” so often during his Thursday morning meeting with the press it…

  10. Miami shredded the Dallas zone in Game 1

    Jun 1, 2011, 12:20 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game One

    Dallas has counted on its zone defense as more than just a change of pace. In a series where Tyson Chandler might have to chase Chris Bosh out on the perimeter, the zone could be a way to keep Chandler in the paint protecting the rim. But in Game 1, the Heat just shredded it.…

  11. NBA Playoffs: Dallas shooters go cold… or was it the Heat?

    Jun 1, 2011, 1:34 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game One

    It will be the “chicken or the egg” question out of Game 1, and we will not really know the answer until we are well along in this series. Did the Dallas Mavericks just miss shots, or did the Miami Heat make them miss? Because the key Dallas shooters were shooting like they played for…

  12. NBA Playoffs: Heat move ball, make shots, play defense, draw first blood

    Jun 1, 2011, 1:15 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game One

    Coming into the NBA Finals, everyone was expecting a battle between Dallas’ smooth, sweet-shooting, ball-movement heavy offense and Miami’s aggressive, swarming, athletic, grinding defense. Not only did the low-scoring game go the way the Heat wanted it to, but the Heat flipped the script on the Mavericks and beat them in the areas Dallas was…

  13. NBA finals Game 1 preview: It’s more than LeBron and Dirk

    May 31, 2011, 12:53 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Five

    It’s one thing to watch the tape and read the report. Dallas knows it has to turn Dwyane Wade and LeBron James into contested jump shooters, not let them drive or get going in transition. Miami knows it needs to front Dirk Nowitzki, force him to put the ball on the floor going right and…

    NBA Finals Preview

    While you’ve spent the weekend barbecuing or water skiing, we’ve been pumping out the NBA finals previews. Breaking down the Heat vs. Mavericks. And there is more to come — including a live chat tonight during Game 1 (starting about 9 pm Eastern). Come on back by PBT tonight at chat during the game, starting…

  15. NBA Finals: Go ahead and hate Heat, but respect them

    May 27, 2011, 11:04 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Washington Wizards

    LeBron James’ decision — and by extension LeBron himself — has become the most polarizing figure in the NBA. That can be good for business. Heat game television ratings are through the roof — because half the people tune in to root against them. Not that ABC cares much, they just want you to tune…

  16. NBA Finals: Heat, Mavericks five keys to victory

    May 27, 2011, 6:04 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat

    Miami always seemed like they had a chance if they just came together — and they did at the right time. Dallas has been a surprise. We all knew they were good but we had been conditioned to expect them to fall flat in the playoffs. Instead Tyson Chandler gave them defensive toughness and Dirk…

  17. NBA Finals Preview: Dallas Mavericks vs. Miami Heat

    May 27, 2011, 4:45 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat

    SEASON RECORDS Mavericks: 57-25 (No. 3 seed in Western Conference) Heat: 58-24 (No. 2 seed in Eastern Conference) SEASON SERIES Dallas swept the season series 2-0. After a slow start to the season Miami went on a 22-2 streak — but both of those losses were to Dallas. That said, both games were before Christmas,…

  18. NBA Playoffs: Heat make stunning comeback, reach finals

    May 27, 2011, 2:18 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Five

    For the first 44 and a half minutes of the Miami Heat’s 83-80 victory on Thursday night, the Chicago Bulls got the exact game they wanted. LeBron James was bottled up after missing some tough jumpers early, with free throws being his only real source of offense. Dwyane Wade‘s struggles continued, and he committed nine…

  19. NBA Playoffs: Back in sweet home Chicago can Bulls extend series?

    May 26, 2011, 1:02 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    In one key way, the Eastern Conference Finals have been a lot like the Western Conference Finals — it has been about the fourth quarter. Miami has turned up the defensive pressure late and the Bulls have wilted in the final stanza. In the fourth quarter of the last three games the Bulls have shot…

  20. Dallas gets to sit back and relax… but don’t expect rust

    May 26, 2011, 2:42 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    Dallas now has some time to put its feet up and relax after polishing off the Thunder 100-96 in Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals. They’ve got a wait ahead of them. At least until next Tuesday (if Miami wins on Thursday night), maybe until June 2 (if Chicago wins). Either way, nearly a…

  21. Winderman: Mike Miller gives Heat big thumbs up

    May 25, 2011, 3:20 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    What has no thumbs and yet could give the Heat a grip on the NBA title for the next few seasons? Mike Miller. Still recovering from preseason surgery on his right thumb and poised for offseason surgery on his left thumb, the veteran swingman stands as an example of how much a player with a…

  22. NBA Playoffs: Heat complement their star power with depth, take Game 4

    May 25, 2011, 1:39 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    The Chicago Bulls finished with a better regular-season record than the star-studded Miami Heat for two reasons: superior depth and better play in close games. On Tuesday night, the Heat flipped the script on the Bulls, and took a commanding 3-1 series lead thanks to superior depth and late-game execution. All season long, the Bulls…
