Heat Vs. Mavs, Game 6 Time, TV Schedule, Odds And More

Game 6 of the 2011 NBA Finals tips off shortly after 8 pm ET on ABC, with the Dallas Mavericks needing a road win to knock out the Miami Heat and take their first-ever NBA championship. Can Dallas get it done, or will Miami be able to force a Game 7 despite going into battle with a wounded Dwyane Wade?

SB Nation Dallas realizes the Heat are favored to take the win, but Mavs Moneyball says the Mavericks are ready:

[Shawn Marion's] answer just about summed up the way we all feel about our team right now: "We know what we're capable of, and we know what's at stake here and we wouldn't be here if we didn't believe in ourselves." Mavs fans... start believing.    

Peninsula Is Mightier is concerned about Wade, but is counting on that home crowd to ... well, to act like a Dallas home crowd. Heat fans point out how close Miami has been to taking just about every game its lost as of late. Can Sunday night's home court advantage make the difference?
