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.
