The Miami Heat are playing a great defensive game and Chris Bosh is dominating on the offensive end. Dirk Nowitzki is being contained, while LeBron James is invisible. It's been a very bizarre game to say the least, and the Miami Heat lead the Dallas Mavericks by a score of 47-45 at halftime.
Joel Anthony has been great on the boards and on defense, while Mario Chalmers' passing has been important thus far. For Dallas, most of the scoring is being done by DeShawn Stevenson and Jason Terry. Bosh has been good and Wade has been good enough, but it's been a game very much defined by the role players so far.
It's an interesting contrast to the first three games, in which the big names have been the big stories. It's a very close game headed into the second quarter, so James and Nowitzki still have plenty of time to heat up and become the story of Game 4, but neither appears to be on their game right now,.
