LeBron James is playing a decent game while Chris Bosh is playing poorly, but Dwyane Wade is doing enough for the both of them, scoring 22 points in absolutely spectacular fashion in the first half. The Dallas Mavericks had a nine point lead with just three minutes remaining in the second quarter, but the Miami Heat went on a 9-0 run to end the quarter, and as a result the score is tied at 51-51 at halftime.
The Mavericks have been all about a team effort offensively, with Dirk Nowitzki turning in a decent, if unspectacular performance. Eight of the nine Mavericks who have entered the game have scored, with the only scoreless player being Peja Stojakovic, who had a hilariously poor five minutes.
At one point, Dallas had a massive positive margin in rebounds and free throws made, but both of those positive margins have disappeared after that incredible final three minutes of the quarter. Dallas had complete control of the game, but that is now gone. It will be interesting to see if they can bounce back from their setback in the third quarter.
