Thursday night’s game in Dallas matched up the past two NBA champions in a game that truly displayed how far apart the teams have become in just two years.
The first member of the Big Three of the Miami Heat to show up for informal workouts for next season was Chris Bosh. The power forward arrived at the AmericanAirlines Arena Thursday morning and was thankful to finally be back on the court.
Call it sweet revenge. In 2006, the Miami Heat came back against the Dallas Mavericks to win the NBA title on Dallas’ home court. In 2011, the Mavs paid the Heat back.
Call it cosmic payback. When Dwyane Wade went down in the first quarter of Game 5 Thursday night, it seemed to be for his actions earlier.
The Miami Heat have been willing to face adversity head-on all season long. But Sunday night, everything is on the line when the Heat welcome the Mavericks back to the AmericanAirlines Arena for Game 6 of the NBA Finals.
For the first time in the playoffs, the Miami Heat had back to back losses when they fell to Dallas Thursday night in game 5 of the NBA Finals. The Heat now heads back to the American Airlines Arena, where it must win the final 2 games in front of a hometown crowd to become NBA Champions.
Miami Heat superstar LeBron James is channeling his inner-Elvis as the team puts final touches on the plan for Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
After a dismal performance in Game 4 of the NBA Finals, the Heat have to bounce back quickly to try and take a 3-2 lead in the series before it returns to Miami.
When it comes to the NBA Finals, the Miami Heat have been able to rely on two members of the Big Three. And while LeBron James continues to struggle, Chris Bosh has played well in the Finals.
He may not be the most celebrated member of the Miami Heat, but no one can question the impact power forward Udonis Haslem has had during the Heat’s playoff run.
