NBA Finals Game Five Preview – Heat @ Mavericks
Miami let another game slip away in the fourth quarter as the cardiac Mavericks continue to hang with the Heat. King James needs to take responsibility for the collapse this time around.
Up 74-67, with less than ten minutes left in the fourth quarter, James was called for traveling. The turnover negated a drive that could have put the Heat up by double digits.
From that point, the Mavericks went on a 19-9 run, Lebron James pouted as he was held scoreless the rest of the way, and Dallas netted the 86-83 come from behind win to tie the series.
LBJ is now a paltry 26 of 56 from the field, to go along with his 7 of 19 from beyond the arc and a Heat leading 15 turnovers. If the “King” is saving his best for last, he better get it going tonight.

Even though Games Six and Seven are in South Beach, it’s obvious that the Heat would rather have two chances to finish off the resurgent Mavericks on their home court.
We have been riding the Heat bandwagon throughout the NBA Finals – we aren’t ready to jump off just yet.
