1 Down, 3 To Go: Lebron And The Shady Heat Team Show Dallas Some South Beach Hospitality, Win Game 1

- By Bossip Staff

Hey Dallas, you’re not in Oklahoma anymore!

Dwyane Wade’s night began with a hug for his mom. It ended with an embrace from LeBron James.

Nearby, Chris Bosh held up three fingers.

No explanation necessary. The Miami Heat are three wins from the reason why the Big Three came together in the first place.

James scored 24 points for his first win in five NBA Finals games, Wade scored 15 of his 22 points in the second half and the Heat beat the Dallas Mavericks 92-84 in Game 1 of the title series on Tuesday night — holding the Western Conference champions to their lowest point total of the playoffs after a dominant defensive showing down the stretch.

Says Bron Bron of last nights victory:

“Feels good because it’s the first game and we played well as a team,” James said. “We’ve got a lot of work to do. … That’s one in the books. We’re excited about this game. Tomorrow we prepare for Game 2, and I see ways we can get better.”

On the Dallas side of things…

Dirk Nowitzki scored 27 points — tearing a tendon in the middle finger on his left, non-shooting, hand during the game and revealing afterward that he’ll likely wear a splint throughout the remainder of the series — and grabbed eight rebounds for Dallas, which got 16 points and 10 rebounds from Shawn Marion and 12 points from Jason Terry, most of those coming in an early flurry. It was Dallas’ fifth straight loss to Miami in Finals games, dating to the Heat rally for the 2006 crown.

Dallas held the Heat to 39 percent shooting, Miami’s second-worst showing of the playoffs.

Problem was, the Mavericks shot 37 percent — by far, their worst night of the postseason offensively.

Dwayne Wade commented on the Heat defense and how it’s helped them stay alive even when the offense isn’t working.

“That’s kind of the way we’ve been winning games, of late,” Wade said. “You’ve got stay with it. You can’t get frustrated because the ball’s not going in. There’s other ways you can dominate the game and we was able to do that tonight. I thought we did a great job in the second half of rebounding the ball, limiting them to one shot as much as possible.”

As shady as the Heat team may be, they put the clamps on Dallas high-scoring offense. If this trend contines Bron and the boys are gonna be doin’ the dougie down Ocean Avenue real soon!

    The refs played the game for Heats are made BAD CALLS which allowed Heats to lead by 10…. as usual. Mavs played a GREAT game! they got the next one

    • Reality

      Yep you are right. Entire playoffs the calls have went for the Heat. I guess when Vegas betting is involved the people must get paid. Damn these Coaches, Atheletes and Refs cheat non stop.

    • Kim

      Oh the refs helped heat win? I see, guess that’s why Dirk attempted more FT’s than Lebron and Wade combined. Dallas attmpted 6 more FT’s than Miami.

      Guess the refs made Dallas miss a lot of key shots that would have kept them in the game too huh? Lol…these Lebron/ Heat haters are something else! Coming up with ANYTHING to not give the Heat their props, first they couldn’t get past Boston or the Lakers or the Bulls, NOW they’re winning cause the refs cheat for them LOL! Sure, that makes sense, it just COULDN’T be that Dallas stunk last night could it lol!

      Keep hating, it’s SO entertaining!

    • Lisa

      I knew they were going to the finals from the beginning. They are the most hated team and that’s good rating. I can’t believe the calls the heat have been getting the whole playoffs.
      When D Rose the MVP and team with the best record wasn’t getting the calls it was a given what was up. Only way Dallas is going to win if they come out scoring like they did in game 4 against the lakers.

    The Heat have the biggest bandwagon fans outside of LA and Boston,from the time the Heat one there 1st till now,they couldnt give away tickets and now all of a sudden everyones been a fan for years,but they only have LEbron JERseys

    • Kim

      Ok, well how about the Cavs? No one cared about them until LEBRON came & made them great then the stands were packed. Now that he’s gone gauranteed cavs attendance will be WAY down. The only reason they went this seas was cause they already had tickets & they hoped to beat their former hometown hero!

      Seriously, look at Cleveland.com sports section, articles about Lebron have 5 times the # of comments as those about the Cavs!

      There are WAY more people on the HEAT HATER BANDWAGON!! LOL

    You guys realize that Dallas had more free throws than the Heat, right? The Haters will always try to paint history to reflect what they would like…The Heat had more players step up down the stretch than Dallas did!!

  • Nasty Murda Tre

    The mavs played bad offensively which made the Heat D look great. You can bet Dallas wont shoot 37 percent again!! If they pick up their rebound and bench game they will win game 2

    The Heat in 6. That’s all.

  • britt

    All he did was switch teams, yall make it seem like he murdered someone..but he is from Akron, Ohio not Cleveland! #teamKingJames..he came to win rings! He wouldve won if he went to Chi, or NYK.. LBJ has some true haters.. I agree with IMO and Kim..the heat are a end of the 3rd quarter and closing 4th quarter team, LBJ and Wade are “the closers”. #teamHeat shoutout to Chalmers for the 3’s and Mike Miller for the Rebounds and Wade for the 4th Quarter blocks and Bosh’s agressiveness superb! LBJ your almost there its your year! And Udonis Haslem aka X-Factor and Joel for great D on dirk.

    • Kim

      EXACTLY, that’s what I keep telling people. I think that is the Heat strategy. They keep a good pace throughout the game, then they go hard in the last quarter.

  • King Beef

    I?m not a Miami fan, but it really look like their poised to take the trophy. In the same sense Dallas fans don?t give up, it?s only the first game.
