The Dallas Mavericks have done well to recover after a poor start to the third quarter, as they only trail by four points going into the fourth, but an emphatic LeBron James dunk at the end of the quarter might have set the tone going into the fourth, as the Miami Heat lead by a score of 75-71.
Dirk Nowitzki has been average for most of the game, but it appears that he's finally getting involved. Both teams are looking solid at both ends of the floor right now, and as a result, we could be in for a great battle between stars throughout the fourth quarter. Dwyane Wade has been the best player on the floor, but LeBron James and Dirk Nowitzki look like dormant volcanoes at this point, ready to blow. Neither has been stunning in this game, but both have been very good in flashes. And, as we all know, both are spectacular closers.
Also, Steve Nash is chilling in the stands with a very attractive woman who appears to be at least 10 years his junior. I'm not being judgmental in either a positive or negative way, just passing along facts. Make of that what you will.
