The Dallas Mavericks' Game 4 win over the Miami Heat was among the most muddy, defensive battles of the NBA Playoffs to date. The two teams combined to shoot 11-34 in the fourth quarter (32 percent), and just 41 percent for the game. But the Mavericks came ahead with an 86-83 win after a long comeback led by Dirk Nowitzki's 10 fourth-quarter points.
But Dwyane Wade (32 points) and LeBron James (a game-high seven assists) had the best highlight of the game, a brilliant halfcourt alley-oop that saw Wade hang in the air like vulture before hammering home the pass. That play topped NBA TV's Top Five plays of Game 4.
