The Miami Heat looked unstoppable through much of Game 6's first quarter, with LeBron James and Chris Bosh combining for 16 points early on. Jason Terry came in for J.J. Barea around the five-minute mark, and within a minute had scored twice and forced a Miami timeout. The Heat led 22-20 with around four minutes left in the first before a three by Brian Cardinal gave Dallas the lead again.
Terry nailed a jumper, then countered a rare (tonight, at least) LeBron miss with a long three-pointer.
Dallas needed somebody to step up after Dirk Nowitzki had to sit with two early personals.
