The Dallas Mavericks are now one win away from an NBA title. And the Miami Heat are now one loss away from being one of the biggest disappointments in NBA history.
Last night, the Mavs battled back to defeat the Miami Heat in the pivotal Game 5 of the NBA Finals 112-103.
They led with a balanced scoring attack helmed by star Dirk Nowitzki, who scored 29 points to lead all scorers.
The Heat, who were the target of the media’s fury in the last two days with LeBron James lack of 4th quarter production, didn’t do much to appease critics.
Wade left the game in the second quarter with a hip injury, and was rendered a non-factor for the rest of the game.
James finished with a triple double, but failed to be the aggressor in such a pivotal game.
