Heat Vs. Mavs, Game 5 Time, TV Schedule And More

LeBron James' "now or never" Game 5 against the Dallas Mavericks will tip off shortly after 9 pm ET Thursday night on ABC. While Dwyane Wade and Dirk Nowitzki have been the series MVPs, coverage far and wide has focused more on LeBron's hard-to-define role in the series and what it means for his career.

What else is there to talk about?

Mavs Moneyball, our Dallas Mavericks community, has a suggestion: take a look at the night's officiating crew, Mavs fans, and find cause for alarm. You'll excuse Dallas for keeping a close eye on the refs after the 2006 Finals. Meanwhile, SB Nation Dallas is more concerned by attention-grabbing comments made by Jason Terry and DeShawn Stevenson, the latter of which of course involves ... LeBron James! Let's try again.

Miami Heat community Peninsula Is Mightier sees Rick Carlisle's coaching as an advantage and all, but again it all comes back to LeBron. Jut embrace it, friends.
