Heat Vs. Mavericks Score Update, Game 2: Mavericks Lead, But Dwyane Wade Taking Over

The Dallas Mavericks lead the Miami Heat by a score of 40-38 at the halfway point of the second quarter of Game 2 of the NBA Finals, but that lead has diminished in the last two minutes. Dwyane Wade is absolutely taking over the game, and he's scored Miami's last six points, including the last two buckets on spectacular dunks. He has 14 points on 7-9 shooting, and he's been far and away the best player on the floor.

Unbelievably, the Miami Heat have not attempted a single free throw to this point in the game. That probably has a lot to do with why, to the naked eye, Miami look like the much better team but Dallas has a narrow lead. The Mavs are getting to the charity stripe and making their free throws. If you're feeling like the Heat have made more shots than the Mavericks to this point, you're absolutely right.
