MAVS RALLY IN FOURTH PERIOD TO TIE FINALS AT 1 EACH VS. HEAT
Mon, 06 Jun 2011 05:28 PM EDT

The situation was anything but good during the final minutes of the final period. Dirk Nowitzki knew it and any hurting in Nowitzki’s injured finger wouldn’t have upset him nearly as much as a 2-0 deficit. In the end Dirk’s willpower rescued Game 2 for the Mavericks.

Nowitzki practically ignored his finger injury in his non-shooting hand and made the tiebreaking layup with 3.6 seconds left in the clock, and the Mavs made an incredible come back from 15 points down in the final period to stagger the Miami Heat 95-93 on Thursday night and equal the series at one game each. Basketball scores.

Nowitzki led the final rally scoring the last 9 points of his team including two late baskets with his injured hand. He finished with 24 points, saying the finger felt fine. Let’s remember Nowitzki got hurt in Game 1 when he swatted the ball trying to take the ball off Chris Bosh. He fiddled with several braces and splints over the past two days before settling on a small one that sat lower on the finger and permitted him to maintain a good sense of the ball. Basketball odds.

Apparently out of the game when the Heat led 88-73 with less than 8 minutes remaining, the Mavs held the Heat to just one field goal from there, a 3-pointer by Mario Chalmers with 24.5 seconds that tied it just 2 seconds after Nowitzki’s 3 had made it 93-90.

But following a timeout, Jason Kidd ran the clock down before passing the ball to Nowitzki, who penetrated and ran past Bosh, then turned to the left and made the layup (which looked quite easy). Basketball spreads.

Dwyane Wade had 36 points for Miami, but his desperation 3-pointer was off when time expired.

Game 3 will shift to Dallas on Sunday.
