Question of the Day
And, yes, LeBronwatch has been reinstated. James has eight points. Hasn’t been in single-digits since January 2007.
Dwyane Wade has been spectacular and just blocked Tyson Chandler _ nearly a good foot taller than he is _ at the rim as the Mavs’ center tried a dunk. Wade also blocked a drive by Jason Terry at the rim, but Chandler got that rebound and scored, as the 2006 finals MVP reacted angrily in disappointment.
Miami had a nine-point lead when Udonis Haslem hit a baseline jumper, but Terry scored the next two hoops for Dallas, and the Mavs are within 74-69 with 9:22 left.
It’s sort of now-or-never time for the Mavericks, and Terry _ who flopped in the fourth quarter of Game 3 _ knows it all too well. With Dirk Nowitzki hurting with a fever, Terry likely will have even more run through him than usual down the stretch for Dallas.
LeBronwatch is nearly over. He might have gotten going.
Just in time for the Miami Heat, too.
A dunk in transition, an alley-oop lob to Dwyane Wade for a ridiculous finish, a jumper … they all came late in the third quarter, as the Heat took what will be an 69-65 lead entering the final 12 minutes.
It’s real easy for the Heat now: Win the fourth quarter, take a stranglehold on this series.
And James has only eight points on 3-for-10 shooting. He also has seven rebounds and six assists, and the Heat are winning. So what he said this morning _ “I could care less about numbers” _ might be ringing true.
Dallas needs a spark and fast. Sure, it’s only a four-point game. But the Heat confidence, you can plainly see, is rising. And Dirk Nowitzki, who missed what would have been a huge 3-pointer at the end of the third, is ailing with just 11 points.
