Miami Heat at Dallas Mavericks Game 5 2011 NBA Finals

Once again, the Heat thought they had a game in the bag, and managed to lose a double digit lead in the fourth quarter.

The Mavericks defeated the Heat 86-83 on Tuesday to even the NBA Finals at 2-2 and, in the process, send the best-of-7 series back to Miami. But first there’s Game 5 at Dallas’ American Airlines Center.

“Game 5, the swing game,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said.

Thursday’s swing game could have been the potential series clincher but Miami played too poorly in the fourth quarter to make the NBA Finals a short series like it did against Philadelphia, Boston and Chicago. Miami went more than seven minutes without scoring a field goal before Dwyane Wade scored a dunk with nine seconds left in the game.

It cut the Mavericks lead to one point, but Jason Terry made two free throws with 6.7 seconds left to force Miami into a three-point shot

The Heat’s final chance seemed as broken as the fourth quarter. Wade mishandled the inbounds following a timeout but saved it by throwing a desperation pass to Mike Miller. Miller forced an awkward three-pointer that missed badly as time expired. The Mavericks outscored the Heat 21-14 in the final fourth quarter and forced six turnovers. Dirk Nowitzki led Dallas with 21 points — 11 in the final period. Wade had 32 points and Chris Bosh added 24, but Miami couldn’t overcome a poor shooting night by LeBron James. He was 3-of-11 shooting with eight points, nine rebounds and seven assists.

“We’ll work to help make it easier for [James] in the next game,” Erik Spoelstra said. “I’ve got to do a better job of making sure he’s in better positions to be aggressive and efficient.”

Nowitzki played despite a fever and was congested during his postgame news conference.

“Sitting at 2-2 right now and obviously we would like to get Game 5 at home before going back to Miami,” Nowitzki said. “That’s a big game for us.”

The Heat trailed 82-81 with 30 seconds left when Wade missed his second of two free throws. Nowitzki scored on a driving layup with 14.4 seconds left to give the Mavericks an 84-81 lead.

Three of eleven??? Get it together, LeBaby! You know this is your only chance to shut down the perpetual hate!

  • Not impressed

    Wasn’t it Lebron who mishandled the ball?

  • CutieReppinNY

    Go Mavs!!!

  • sar

    Lebron will NEVER shutdown any “hate” with all those acting he does! smh

    Heats are messy and dirty. Instead of playing the game, all they do to catch up with draw fake fouls. I’m glad Mavs stepped up and smacked them in the face. Lebron isn’t sh*t when he’s checked with good defense.

  • 7lady

    I know one thing Lebrons balls gettin too big for his britches. He is way too cocky. I hope dallas win…not to mention my honey got a couple dollas on them.

  • It's Me

    I don’t understand why we don’t double team Dirk! Not when he gets the ball, but as soon as he turn for his shot! Fuk man. We got them the next two!!!

    • Hont

      Because they will they leave Kidd or Terry open and they will bust a 3. Mavs are going to win. Heats may have more heavy hitter but Mavs are better as a team overall and proved it already.

  • tyler scerry

    I don’t understand why people hate LeBron so much and they don’t even know the guy, they still could of won even though Lebron only had 8 points so Dallas should be worried if yall dummies really knew something about sports!

    • JM@gic

      How on gods green earth can a bandwagoner say something about someone knowing anything about sports

    • Bloodshot Third Eye

      Dirk was sick and the Dallas bench still hasn’t shown up and the series is tied. people like you need to PRAY Dallas doesn’t win game 5.

  • Darlin

    It’s not Lebaby……it’s LaBrat! And he is a cute one, but I was really disappointed in his performance last night. Come on Cutie, get it together.

    But that D-Wade is sooooooo adorable and calm. I don’t know how that brother does it. Dag, he’s FINE! And he has mastered that basketball.

    And let’s not forget Bosh, he’s cute in a big brother way…….but he’s been bringing his game, so I ain’t got nothing but LOVE for him.

  • bre

    Whooop whooop! Go mavs!

  • CalyxXx
