2011 NBA Final Game 2 vs Dallas Mavericks. Miami Heat (03 06 2011) Recap real Game
D. Wade 36 pts Dirk Nowitzki 24 pts Nowitzki rallies Mavs to win that ties NBA finals MIAMI (AP) Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks put a stunning end to their misery in Miami. Now they can win their first NBA title without ever coming back to South Florida. Nowitzki shook off an injury to his non-shooting hand and made the tie-breaking layup with 3.6 seconds left, and the Mavericks roared back from 15 points down in the fourth quarter to beat the Heat 95-93 on Thursday night and tie the NBA finals at one game apiece. “You can just sense it in us that we weren’t going to give up, we were going to be resilient,” Dallas guard Jason Terry said. Capping a furious rally by scoring Dallas’ final nine points, Nowitzki made two late baskets left-handed – despite a torn tendon on the middle finger of that non-shooting hand. He finished with 24 points, saying the finger felt fine. “Definitely a huge comeback for us and we never gave up, and that was big,” Nowitzki said. Nowitzki was hurt in Game 1 when he slapped at the ball trying to make a steal from Chris Bosh. He fiddled with various braces and splints over the last two days before settling on a small one that would allow him to keep a good feel of the ball. Dwyane Wade had 36 points for Miami, but his desperation 3-pointer was off at the buzzer. Game 3 is Sunday in Dallas.
