Not letting themselves be buried on their home floor, the Dallas Mavericks picked up the shovels and piled up dusts for the Miami Heat to eat. The sinus-ly troubled Dirk Nowitzki led his Texas boys in feeding their nemeses with dirt by piling up 21 points and grabbing 11 boards. While LeBron James' throat was covered with massive soil from Shawn Marion's defense which made scoring seemed to be harder than spending an entire time talking to Dikembe Mutombo, Dwayne "the co-franchise player" Wade proved that the Heat is still his team. The Flash scored 32 points on 13 of 20 shooting from the field. That is four times larger than what James had contributed which made Juwan Howard do his favorite face impersonation of himself wondering what has been happening from his bench point of view.
The Heat posted a commanding 9 point lead at one point during the fourth quarter which was slowly broken down by the Jason Terry tattoo inspired Mavericks' defense, which happened a lot of times in the past, actually, in every series that the Mavs have been in. With Nowitzki Michael Jordaning this game, all with the fever and sinus problems, Marc Cuban had all reasons to remain in his unusual humble Cuban side and celebrate just in the depths of his own personal reflections. With the series tied at 2-2, Jason Terry has no reasons to remove his Larry O'Brien trophy, and Jason Kidd, Shawn Marion and... uhm... the rest of the roster are still on the road to catch up with their first ever title.
Three games remain. Three games to decide who is who. Three games to boost the morale of The Decision. Three games to finally seal the epic Juwan Howard- Brian Cardinal battle of the benches, and three games to determine which city brags on the street midway in June with all the rings and the championship at hand. Stay tuned and see if LeBron chills out once again or if Juwan Howard finally comes out of his egg and do a more honest defense compared to what Cardinal had established.
