The 2011 NBA Finals became very interesting after Game 2. With the Miami crowd cheering, the Heat players smiling ear to ear, and 7-minutes left on the clock, Dwayne Wade hit a 3-point shot to put the Miami Heat up by 15 points. Game over, right?
Jason Terry, and a few of the other Dallas players didn’t care for Wade’s show boating, holding the pose of his 3 point shot for seconds after it went in, and something came to life inside of the Mavericks. Especially Dirk Nowitzki.
Nowitzki carried the Mavericks back from the huge 4th quarter deficit, scoring the game winning basket with only seconds left and tying this series at 1-1.
If the Mavericks end up winning this series, that moment will definitely be looked at as the turning point. The series now shifts to Dallas for three straight games. This is going to get very interesting! The Dallas Mavericks fans and their flamboyant owner Mark Cuban can smell blood. They have been here before, and now with the next three games at home, the city of Dallas will be rocking!
