Believe it or not, the best players on the floor in the second quarter of Game 4 of the NBA Finals have been DeShawn Stevenson and Mario Chalmers. It's been a seriously sloppy game at both ends, with neither team shooting well and both teams committing silly fouls, but these two role players have done some notable things thus far. Stevenson has a couple of three pointers, while Chalmers has a couple of nice assists. Yes, these are the most important things that are happening.
Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, and Dirk Nowitzki look like no one informed them that this is Game 4 of the NBA Finals. It would be surprising to see them fail to up their games in the second half, but this has been a bit of a disappointment so far. Halfway through the second quarter, the Miami Heat lead the Dallas Mavericks by a score of 34-29, despite their very poor shooting from the field.
