The Miami Heat might be hanging in Game 5 by the slimmest of margins right now.
It’s 73-69 Dallas, 5:59 left in the third quarter. Dirk Nowitzki is up to 21 points on 8 for 13 shooting for the Mavericks, who have cooled off _ yes, cooled off _ to a robust 61 percent from the floor. The Mavs are 8 for 12 from 3-point range.
Mike Miller, who started in his place, just opened the third quarter by nailing a game-tying 3-pointer.
No official updates yet on Wade’s status.
By the way, at least one Mavs fan was very upset at halftime. She ordered a $4 drink from a vendor, gave him a $20 and got back a $10 bill, a $5 bill and a $1 coin in change. The coin set her OFF. It was getting huffy in here, folks.
