The Dallas Mavericks eventually found a way to use their superstar Dirk Nowitzki to their advantage in an NBA Finals series littered with All-Stars.
In the fourth quarter of their Game 2 match up against the Miami Heat in Miami, the Mavs capitalized on the constant double teams that swarmed Nowitzki every time he touched the ball. After a series of good looking feeds to teammates Jason Kidd and Jason Terry, Nowitzki finally found a shooting touch that had been missing for the majority of the first half.
Now with the series tied at one game apiece, the two clubs will head to Dallas for Game 3 of the series. The Mavs victory in South Beach effectively transfers home court advantage from the Eastern Conference champion Miami Heat to a Dallas team many feared wouldn’t even make it out of the first round of the playoffs.
Now, with two games in the books and a lot of NBA experts reconsidering how the series will go down, the Mavericks have been listed as -2.5 favorites to win Game 3.
