DALLAS (AP) - Jason Kidd just drilled a 3-pointer, Mavs up 105-100.

Major momentum swing about a minute ago. LeBron James drove baseline and scored to tie the game _ but was called for an offensive foul. No basket. Building roared.

Miami is going with James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Mike Miller and Udonis Haslem. Dallas has Shawn Marion, Dirk Nowitzki, Tyson Chandler, Jason Terry and Kidd.

Can’t hear myself think in here. It’s that loud.

1:26 left. They need to seriously rethink this whole lockout thing. Game’s too good right now.

___

Heat lead, 96-95 with 5:16 left.

High pick and rolls are getting to Dallas.

And LeBron James … a triple-double. His seventh career in the playoffs, 15 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists so far. Of course, the Mavs’ scoreboard just said JJ Barea is the player of the game.

Barea has been great, sure. Northeastern fans, stand up. He’s got 17 points, 4 for 5 from 3-point range.

Dirk’s up to 25. Wade has 20 for Miami.

What. A. Series.

___

You know who’ll take over late for Dallas.

Hint: He’s a German fellow.
