The Dallas Mavericks got hot at the end of the second quarter, ensuring they wouldn't take a double-digit deficit against the Miami Heat into the locker room. Dallas is down 47-42 with 24 minutes left in Game 3.
Dwyane Wade has been unstoppable at times, barreling to the basket over and over on his way to 19 early points, missing just five of his 13 attempts from the floor. Dallas fans are having flashbacks.
Dirk Nowitzki has found opportunities at both ends of the floor after not having much of a presence in the first quarter, turning in 10 points, five boards and three blocks so far.
