Miami Heat almost lost this game. In fact if Dirk was making his shots like the last series they would have. It seems Miami wins 3 quarters of every game but when they get to the 4th; it’s a meltdown. Although they didn’t blow this one; it was mighty close to a letdown. It all came down to a last second shot by Dirk. A shout he should have made. Now Miami is just two wins from an NBA champion.
The Heat were able to hold Dallas off and win 88-86. The victory over the Dallas Mavericks was a clear example of why Miami will win the championship. Dirk had no one else to rely on. Even with a bad finger he still was the only option for the Mavericks at the end. Although he should have made the last second shot it still would have been nice to have a plan B. Miami how has a 2-1 lead in the NBA finals.
History says the Game 3 winner in a tied finals has won the championship all 11 times since the 2-3-2 format began in 1985. Dirk has made his own history this year. I look for him to try very hard to change this one; for as great as Miami is with 2 superstars (Wade & James) and 1 Super Role Player (Bosh) they still are winning by the other team missing last second shots. It should not be that close if they are that good. I still say Miami wins the ring in 7.
