Mario Chalmers gave the Miami Heat a 31-30 lead when he sank a long three at the buzzer of the first quarter in Game 5 of the 2011 NBA Finals. But they may need more than that with Dwyane Wade out of the game right ow with an injury.
The Miami Heat started to turn things around in Game 5 when the Dallas Mavericks took Dirk Nowitzki out of the lineup for Tyson Chandler, but then Dwyane Wade left the game with an injury after he came into contact with Brian Cardinal. Wade had a team-high eight points at the time of the injury, but it may be up to LeBron James to lead the Heat to victory.
However, James will need to do better than two points on 1-of-4 shooting in the first quarter. He missed a left-handed shot early in the game and came up short on a jumper, too.
The Mavericks have distributed the scoring among their starters. Tyson Chandler has nine points right now, while Dirk Nowitzki has six points. They are shooting over 60 percent as a team.
