With the Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade out for nearly the first eight minutes of Game 5's third quarter, the Dallas Mavericks were able to bring their lead to five points, 84-79. But even shooting 60 percent from the field, Dallas has been unable to shake Miami.
Wade added two points and two assists in his return to the court, but LeBron James and Chris Bosh have kept Miami in this game. James added six points, while Bosh grabbed four rebounds, three on the offensive glass. Mario Chalmers didn't hit a three in the quarter, but did sink two free throws.
Dallas has kept pressure on the heat and it paid off late in the quarter when LeBron James was forced into a turnover. Dallas, though, was unable to capitalize on it when Jason Terry bounced a pass out of bounds.
