Heat Allow Mavs for a Big 4th Quarter Comeback. Lose Game Two. »

The Dallas Mavericks rallied from a 15-point, fourth-quarter deficit to defeat the Miami Heat 95-93 Thursday in Game 2 of the NBA Finals. The series is now tied at 1. Dirk Nowitzki led the Mavericks with 24 points, including the winning layup with three seconds remaining. Trailing 88-73, the Mavs closed the game with a 22-5 run. The Heat may have gotten just a little too comfortable with that 15-point lead. It didn’t help that Wade decided to showboat in front of the Mavs’ bench. Dallas had more than enough fuel when you consider the Heat crowd had already begun celebrating by throwing T-shirts on the court. LeBron James finished with 20 points, eight rebounds and four assists. He shot 8 of 15 from the field, but the Heat probably need him to be more aggressive. He wore his Nike LeBron 8 PS Home PE for 2nd straight Finals game.

    Wait to go Bron :x ! He just jacked up a lot of threes and this is what happened!… Hero ball sometimes isn’t nice. Play MIAMI B-ball and the outcome should have been different… Just gotta play better next game! Can’t wait for game 3!!! Get’em HEAT!!!

  • Wow… this should be in every book about basketball on how not to lose a game. No matter how good Dallas was in closing minutes Wade & LeBron should not allow them to come back. Even if they usually win by defense, you shouldn’t put up hero 3’s when the other team is erasing the deficit so fast.

  • I think they are gonna come out furious on Game 3

  • JR_LYON aka Team Big Footers

    The Heat totall F*CKED off that game!!! Seriously I’m wonderin if they can even win it now that the next 3 games are in Dallas. I don’t like the 2-3-2 format for the Finals!!!

  • They have to win one in dallas or its over. :???:

    King James Playing with aggressive mode would do game 3 gd luck HEAT-triple threat

  • w1tness-23

    everyone has bad games even lebron. They just got to keep a lead and not lose it like before. Chris bosh was a huge factor in the lost (4/18 shooting and he didnt foul dirk and let him go by…). Lebron will come back strong game 3 guaranteed
