The Miami Heat finished the third quarter with a flurry just as it appeared the Dallas Mavericks were poised to seize control of Game 4 of the NBA Finals to take a 69-65 lead into the final five minutes. It's still the Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade show for the Heat as the two have combined for 47 points, with third wheel LeBron James adding just eight points on the game. But even without James contributing in a scoring role, the Heat have been strong, and are poised to take a strong hold on a series with a Game 4 win.
For Dallas, Shawn Marion has carried the load, though he has plenty of help from his friend. Marion has a team-high 16 points, but three other Mavericks are in double-figures. Dirk Nowitzki and DeShawn Stevenson each have 11 points, with Tyson Chandler adding 10. Chandler also has a team-high 10 rebounds.
With one quarter to go in Game 4 of the NBA Finals, the Dallas Mavericks need to find some of that comeback magic, else the series may slip away in a hurry.
