Dallas Mavericks Storm Past Miami Heat To Close Game 6 First Quarter

The Dallas Mavericks started the first quarter of Game 6 looking up at the Miami Heat, but a late charge -- with Dirk Nowitzki on the bench due to foul trouble, no less -- gave Dallas the 32-27 advantage at the end of the period. LeBron James, who started the game by nailing his first four shots, missed a three and turned the ball over twice in the final two minutes.

Jason Terry leads Dallas with nine points, followed by J.J. Barea and Shawn Marion's six apiece. James has held steady at nine points since very early on, with Chris Bosh's seven points also staying the same for quite some time now.
