DALLAS — You’d have thought the first five nail-biting games of The Finals were dramatic enough, what with the Dallas Mavericks and Miami Heat playing an instant classic before our very eyes.
The games have been dramatic enough that no one needed any extra nonsense to stoke the flames.
That didn’t stop Heat stars LeBron James and Dwyane Wade from poking a little fun at Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki before Game 5, though. In light of the results of the game, however, it’s clear Nowitzki and the Mavericks got the last laugh this time:
Nowitzki’s fever broke just in time for him to cook the Heat for 29 points to help the Mavericks take a 3-2 lead back to Miami for Sunday’s Game 6. And you can bet the narrative will shift dramatically after this video makes the rounds.
The “Heat Haters” that James and Wade love to talk about will certainly revel in this one.
Oh, and a word of advice, fellas if there is a camera around … never mind!
