NBA Finals: Mavericks beat Heat for title
Question of the Day
Through five games, Dallas has scored 463 points and Miami has 459, so a blowout seems unlikely.
And perhaps they can get a boost with what’s probably a long-overdue lineup change. Mario Chalmers is getting the start at point guard, bumping the struggling Mike Bibby to the bench.
Or maybe the Mavericks, who were a blistering 13 for 19 from 3-point range in Game 5, keep it rolling from the outside and shoot their way to a championship.
Our prediction before the series was Mavs in 7, so we’ll assume a Heat victory tonight.
For another prediction, we turn to a certain former Mavericks star.
“I have a feeling The German will have Monster game tonight,” Steve Nash wrote this afternoon on Twitter.
Dirk Nowitzki certainly can make that prediction come true.
There is a noticeable amount of Mavericks blue sprinkled in among all the white shirts that surround the arena here.
A large German flag was being waved behind the basket as Dirk Nowitzki was shooting at during pregame warmups, and plenty of fans are wearing his jerseys in the seats.
Mavericks franchise founder Donald Carter and his wife, Linda, a former high school basketball player who inspired him to bring the NBA to Dallas, were among the fans in the stands. He was of course wearing the white cowboy hat that was part of the club’s original logo. He still owns a portion of the club.
The blue might not stand out as much once the rest of Miami’s late-arriving fans show up. But some of them might be surprised to find themselves sitting next to someone dressed in blue.
