  1. 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…

  2. Dirk needs help if Dallas is going to get a ring

    Jun 6, 2011, 8:15 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki of the Dallas Mavericks go

    Going into this series Dallas’ bench was going to be a huge factor. Well, they have been, just not in the way anybody was picturing. While single game +/- stats (how a team scores with a player on the court) can be misleading, we have an unmistakable trend broken out by Jeff Fogel at HoopData.…

  3. NBA Playoffs: Miami gets home-court back with erratic performance

    Jun 6, 2011, 12:43 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Three

    For a little while, it looked like the Miami Heat’s 88-86 win over the Dallas Mavericks to give them a 2-1 lead in the series was going to be a repeat of Dallas’ dramatic Game 2 comeback victory. The Heat came out in attack mode and put the Mavericks on their heels early, attacking the…

  4. Report: Mavericks will try to bring back Chandler, Barea

    Jun 5, 2011, 5:01 PM EDT

    Tyson Chandler of the Dallas Mavericks c

    There’s been a lot of talk that this run is Dirk Nowitzki’s last chance at a ring, because of his age and the makeup of the team. I’m not buying the age thing — I watched Game 2 of the finals. And the entire playoffs. The guy is averaging 28.1 points per game and shooing…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. What’s on their mind Saturday: Dallas Mavericks

    Jun 4, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    The Mavs have done what they set out to do. Well, okay, not really. They probably wanted to win both games in Miami, devastate their spirits ans set up a sweep. Easy is always better in such things. But a more realistic goal was to split the two games in Miami and regain homecourt advantage. Which…

  9. Mavs’ Brendan Haywood questionable for Game 3

    Jun 3, 2011, 9:42 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    The Mavericks backup center Brendan Haywood is questionable for Game 3 Sunday after injuring his right hip flexor in Game 2. Officially Haywood is day-to-day and Dallas coach Rick Carlisle was playing everything close to the vest as coaches do in the playoffs. ESPNDallas has the quotes. “We’ll know more tomorrow. He was not feeling…

  10. 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…

  11. Video: Dirk Nowitzki’s game winner

    Jun 3, 2011, 8:50 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    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…

  12. Miami’s celebration only issue in mind of Mavericks

    Jun 3, 2011, 8:10 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    It became the hot topic Thursday night after the Dallas Mavericks evened the NBA finals 1-1 with a 95-93 win in Game 2 — how Miami’s celebration midway through the fourth quarter sparked Dallas’ comeback. If it did. Players were asked about it and it became the hot discussion on twitter. What you think of…

  13. NBA Finals: Dallas tops Miami in Game 2 with an incredible fourth quarter comeback

    Jun 3, 2011, 2:53 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    From where we sit now, it’s so easy to look back at the dissipation of Miami’s 15-point fourth-quarter lead and point incredulously at what went wrong. The answers for what ails the Heat are always so obvious; their flaws are so glaring and fixable that armchair coaches across the country typically resolve them before Mark…

  14. NBA Playoffs: The Heat collapse

    Jun 3, 2011, 12:18 AM EDT

    Kidd over LeBron

    After a regular season defined by crunch-time blunders and late collapses, the Heat’s postseason had been defined by gritty closing performances that saw the Heat holding onto close leads or pulling off comebacks in the fourth quarter. All of that changed during Thursday night’s 95-93 loss, which may end up being Miami’s most important game…

  15. 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…

  16. Nobody knows who Dirk Nowitzki is

    Jun 2, 2011, 4:39 PM EDT

    Dirk in black background

    Dirk Nowitzki has carried the Dallas Mavericks to the NBA Finals with some absolutely masterful performances, is probably the best European player to ever play in the NBA, and has been one of the league’s best players for years now. But that doesn’t mean many people actually, you know, know who he is. As it…

  17. 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…

  18. Nowitzki says finger injury may affect dribbling, passing

    Jun 2, 2011, 10:59 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    This is not about to stop him — Dirk Nowitzki is going to be out there on the court against the Miami Heat on Thursday night with a splint on the upper half of the middle finger on his left hand (non-shooting hand). He can adjust his shot and how he uses his guide hand…

  19. NBA finals draw biggest rating since Shaq/Kobe teams

    Jun 1, 2011, 2:12 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game One

    It’s a glass half full or half empty kind of thing. The facts are that Game 1 of the NBA finals Tuesday — Miami’s 92-84 win over Dallas — drew a 10.7 rating nationally, the highest rating for a Game 1 since the 2004 NBA finals (the Pistons vs. the Lakers of Shaq, Kobe, Karl…

  20. 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.…

  21. Video: LeBron James, Dwyane Wade take over late

    Jun 1, 2011, 8:10 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game One

    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…

  22. Heat’s Mike Miller leaves arena in sling with shoulder injury

    Jun 1, 2011, 2:40 AM EDT

    Heat's Miller reacts after sinking a three point basket against the Mavericks during Game 1 of the NBA Finals basketball series in Miami

    They say it’s not that bad, but any time a key cog for a team leaves the arena wearing a sling you have to wonder. Mike Miller aggravated a left shoulder or arm injury late in the Game 1 Miami win and left the arena wearing a sling, according to multiple reports. He first tweaked…

  23. NBA Finals: Miami balances star power with rebounding grit in Game 1 win

    Jun 1, 2011, 2:26 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game One

    All that it’s taken for the Miami Heat to win games in this year’s playoffs is the ability to maintain reasonable margins. They go on runs, they shut down their opponents’ offensive options, and they stretch their legs with displays of supreme athleticism, but the body of the single-game narrative — the initial 43 or…
