Celebration got started a little too early in South Beach.
In another amazing playoff comeback, the Dallas Mavericks went on an amazing run after being down by 15 points with 7:13 remaining.
Dirk Nowitzki took the game over in the final minutes after struggling for much of the game. Nowitzki was three-for-10 in the first half, and then heated up in the fourth. He shot seven-for-12 in the second half.
Playing with a bad left finger, the Mavericks' big man scored seven points in the final 57 seconds.
As far as comebacks go, this one might be one of the greatest in NBA Finals history. Dallas made up a great deal of ground in a short amount of time.
The Heat, on there hand, only got one field goal in the final seven minutes. It was a brilliant night from Dwyane Wade that went to waste. The Heat guard shot 13-for-20 for 36 points, and also had six assists, five rebounds, three steals, and two blocks.
LeBron James added 20 points, eight rebounds, four assists, and four steals.
With the series tied 1-1, the Mavericks go back to Dallas with a great deal of momentum. They were hoping for a split in Miami, and they got it, and did in improbable fashion.
