Heat Mavericks

  1. Rick Carlisle had Mavericks pack for only Game 6 of finals

    Nov 4, 2011, 8:59 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Rick Carlisle pulled a trick out of the Miami Heat’s Pat Riley’s playbook to win the NBA finals. Back in 2006, the Miami Heat were up 3-2 and heading back for a Game 6 in Dallas. Then Heat coach Riley told his players to only pack enough clothes for one game’s stay — they were…

  2. Mark Cuban says Dallas outcoached Miami in finals

    Aug 30, 2011, 11:42 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls

    The longer the lockout lasts, the longer Mark Cuban gets to bask in the glow of being the owner of the NBA Champions. Sure, the whole “I can’t talk about my players or David Stern will hammer me with fines” part is no fun, but Cuban is loving this winning a title thing. Like when…

  3. President did call Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle

    Getting a call from the President of the United States (and getting to visit the White House during the next season) is one of the perks of winning an NBA title. Traditionally the call is a pretty perfunctory thing — but with Barack Obama in the White House it’s a little different. He knows the…

  4. Video: 10 best dunks of the NBA finals

    Jun 15, 2011, 3:23 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    Let’s take one more video trip back to the NBA finals, because these teams were throwing it down. Literally. There were some fantastic dunks. That includes LeBron actually attacking the rim (so, you know, not stuff from the fourth quarter) plus some Dirk Nowitzki being Dirk Nowtizki. Enjoy.

  5. Kidd says LeBron gets “bumps, bruises” now, rings later

    Jun 15, 2011, 11:59 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Jason Kidd knows about being on the doorstep and losing. He led the New Jersey Nets to the finals two straight seasons playing some fantastic ball, only to run into the buzzsaw that was the Kobe/Shaq Lakers and the Duncan/Robinson Spurs. He was patient, kept evolving his game (as his athleticism faded his outside shot…

  6. Video: Top 10 plays of the 2011 NBA finals

    Jun 15, 2011, 8:47 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    These were a damn good finals. Close games, plenty of drama, dramatic comeback, some feistiness — these finals between the Miami Heat and Dallas Mavericks had it all. And they had some great plays. The fine folks at NBA.com compiled these for us and we bring them to you for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy watching…

  7. LeBron congratulates Dallas on NBA crown

    Jun 14, 2011, 4:42 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    LeBron James issued this statement on his Web site Tuesday afternoon. Congratulations Mavericks on the championship …especially Dirk, J.Kidd, & Terry who have done so much for our league and worked so hard to get here. They deserve all the credit for what they have accomplished. Thank you to all my family, friends and especially…

  8. LeBron talks about haters, his play in finals

    Jun 14, 2011, 2:07 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Say what you will about him, LeBron James did not shy away from the assembled media on Tuesday and took on the tough questions about his game and his post game comments. It was those comments — saying about all the people who rooting against him “tomorrow they have to wake up and have the…

  9. How did all those Mavericks fans get into Game 6?

    Jun 14, 2011, 10:29 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Mavs owner Mark Cuban said it best after the game: “Our fans punked the s— out of Miami’s fans.” It was obvious in the building with a fair amount of blue shirts sprinkled in among the white, especially close to the Dallas bench area. It became louder and more obvious as the game went on…

  10. Is Erik Spoelstra’s job in danger? It shouldn’t be.

    Jun 13, 2011, 5:11 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    In Miami, the blame has to go somewhere. LeBron James is getting a heaping share. So are all the role players. But you can’t fire LeBron and in the NBA when teams don’t live up to expectations it is the coach whose job is on the line. Fair or not. There are those wondering if…

  11. Mark Cuban may not do championship rings

    Jun 13, 2011, 3:56 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Dirk Nowitzki, Jason Kidd, Tyson Chandler, Brendan Haywood, Shawn Marion, Jason Terry, all those Dallas Mavericks veterans who have chased rings through their entire career… they may not get them. Oh, they get to call themselves champions, they get the chip and the bragging rights. But on NBA TV after the game last night Mark…

  12. Nation tunes in to see Heat fail, television ratings up

    Jun 13, 2011, 2:14 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisl

    America loves some good schadenfreude. Miami Heat and LeBron James were on the brink of being knocked out and the nation wanted to watch, which is why the television ratings for Game 6 were the highest for a Game 6 in 11 years (the first of the Lakers three-pete titles with Shaq and Kobe). (Look,…

  13. Post game video from Miami Heat, Dallas Mavericks

    Jun 13, 2011, 11:49 AM EDT

    APTOPIX NBA Finals Mavericks Heat Basketball

    The Dallas Heat sounded like the veterans they are, albeit ones overwhelmed by the moment. The Miami Heat sounded hurt, except for LeBron James who sounded a little defiant to all those “haters” out there. Below is some of the post game press conferences from players on both team — including James saying what he…

  14. The Miami Heat will be back. Sorry, it is true.

    Jun 13, 2011, 10:50 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    People around the nation are celebrating at the demise of the Miami Heat. The narrative that it is poetic justice for a team of veterans that played smart and was better than the sum of their parts would defeat the Heat seemed like poetic justice for many. But Miami will be back. They are only…

  15. Video: Jason Terry takes over in Game 6

    Jun 13, 2011, 9:51 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Dirk Nowitzki was having one of those nights. Dallas needed to win Game 7 (they didn’t want to give Miami life) and their star and best scorer couldn’t find his rhythm. Enter Jason Terry. The former Sixth Man of the Year came in and started to light it up, hitting everything on his way to…

  16. League to review tape of Heat, Mavs altercation

    Jun 13, 2011, 9:42 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    The good news is nobody is getting suspended from Game 7. But the league is going to review the tape from an altercation that started between DeShawn Stevenson and Udonis Haslem in the second quarter. If someone did leave the bench to enter the fray they could face a fine and be suspended at the…

  17. LeBron has a few arrogant words for those who hate him

    Jun 13, 2011, 8:15 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    It seemed like most of America was rooting against LeBron James. The Decision. The pep rally. The air of arrogance around him and the team coming into the season. It turned people off. A lot of people. Most of America. When asked after the game (in an interview broadcast on NBA TV) about how it…

  18. Dallas won the title, Miami didn’t lose it

    Jun 13, 2011, 3:15 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    The story was not the Dallas Mavericks and their incredible shooting, it was the Lakers collapse. Then it was how the Thunder were not ready. Now, it was how the Miami Heat lacked discipline, could not execute at the end of games and how LeBron James faltered. That’s not what the story should be. The…

  19. Dallas may have won last old-school title for while

    Jun 13, 2011, 12:07 AM EDT

    APTOPIX NBA Finals Mavericks Heat Basketball

    Dallas won it all. They earned it. They get the banner and the rings (if they do rings) and the bragging rights. They earned them. But everybody wants to be Miami. Not the fans. Outside of South Florida the Heat the Heat are despised, treated with the same venom usually reserved for politicians who text…

  20. Dallas Mavericks are your new NBA Champions

    Jun 12, 2011, 11:12 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Dallas was the best team. The Dallas Mavericks got contributions from their superstar Dirk Nowitzki, but they also got a huge game from Jason Terry, solid play from everyone — even Brian Cardinal and Ian Mahinmi in Game 6 — and they won 105-95 to take the NBA finals 4-2. Mark Cuban — who turned…

  21. Video: Heat, Mavericks talk about Game 6

    Jun 11, 2011, 8:12 PM EDT

    LeBron James, Dwyane Wade

    This is “now or never” LeBron. A real now or never. Dallas enters Game 6 with a chance to end the series, while the Heat look to force a Game 7. Below is a video of guys from both teams looking ahead to Game 6. But wait, there’s more! For that same fantastic low price,…

  22. NBA finals: Miami will execute at the end of Game 6 or the season ends

    Jun 11, 2011, 7:38 PM EDT

    jason-terry-game-5

    One stat sums up why we are one more Mavericks win away from seeing David Stern hand the Larry O’Brien trophy over to Mark Cuban: In the final six minutes of Games 2 through 5, Dallas has outscored Miami 60-26. These have been incredibly close games, but with everything on the line Dallas and its veteran lineup…

  23. LeBron James is a little unsure of whether the pressure is getting to him

    Jun 11, 2011, 1:00 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    Let’s get right down to it, shall we? The Miami Herald asked LeBron James if the pressure was “getting to him” whatever that means. His answer was clear, decisive, forceful. And by that I mean it was none of those things: “No, I don’t think so,” James said. Self-correction. “I don’t believe so,” James said. One…

  24. Video: LeBron, Wade mock sick Dirk… it’s not a big deal

    Jun 10, 2011, 12:26 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    The NBA world is watching and talking about this video today, in the brilliant words of SBN’s Tom Ziller it is blowing up like a meth lab. So we bring it to you. This news broadcast below — taken BEFORE Game 5 — has video of LeBron James and Dwyane Wade walking out of the…
