Heat Vs. Mavs, Final Score: Dallas Takes Talents To South Beach, Wins NBA Title With 105-95 Victory

For once, the Dallas Mavericks didn’t need a fourth quarter comeback against the Miami Heat in the 2011 NBA Finals. All they had to do was ensure that the Heat didn’t have one of their own.

LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and the rest of the Heat didn’t show up in the fourth quarter as the Dallas Mavericks won Game 6 and the 2011 NBA Title with a 105-95 victory.

Jason Terry led the Mavericks with 27 points in a game-saving performance. Dallas needed Terry to step up as Dirk took time to get out of a funk. Nowitzki finally did, finishing with 21 and helping the Mavs seal the deal.

For the Heat, LeBron finished with a team-leading 21, 8 of which he scored in the fourth quarter. However, once again, much of that was too little too late. Dwyane Wade added 17 and Chris Bosh scored 19 but the Heat never turned it on in the fourth.

For Dallas, it is their first NBA crown and revenge for the 2006 NBA Championship, which Miami won by defeating Dallas.

Now the Mavs return to Dallas where they’ll be heroes not only to their hometown but also many fans in Cleveland, happy to see LeBron James lose in such a fashion. As for LeBron and the Heat, it’s gonna be a long off-season in South Beach.
