95 Mavs, 93 Heat

Well thank god the Mavs won this game because it looked like it was going to be over in the 4th. Miami took a 15 point lead only to squash it in the 4th and it was capped off by Dirk Nowitzki making the tiebreaking layup with 3.6 seconds left.

The final play was a thing of beauty, Jason Kidd dribbled the ball down to 10 seconds then gave it to Dirk at the top of the key with Chris Bosh defending. Instead of settling with an off balance jumper or a fade away, dirk took it to Chirs Bosh spun passed him and got an uncontested lay up.

The next 3.6 seconds were terrifying as Lebron pushed it up passed it to Dwayne Wade and he got a look 4 steps beyond the arc that barely missed.

This was a huge game as the Mavs stole home court back and won what has to be a mentally exhausting game for the Heat. The series is tied at 1-1.
