“I don’t want to sit here and be the coach of OKC but I seen a lot of things that could have been done better.”

Nowitzki saves Mavs in epic comeback



MIAMI – Dirk Nowitzki was tired of everyone messing with his chance to be a champion, mistake upon mistake pushing him to the brink. What the bleep? What were you thinking? The Mavericks had come back too far and somehow Jason Terry(notes) had lost his man, lost his mind and nearly lost these NBA Finals. One more time, Nowitzki had to go clean up a Mavericks mess. One more time, salvation had to come out of his guts and guile, out of his genius.

Son of a bleep, Dirk Nowitzki blared in the final huddle of the final chance to save everyone on these Dallas Mavericks. These two had gone back the longest together, back to the ’06 Finals collapse to the Miami Heat, and Nowitzki would be damned to let this happen again. Soon, they were walking back to the floor in the fleeting seconds of Game 2, and the ball promised to go back to Dirk again, back where it belonged, back where winning and losing would be decided with the flick of his wrist.

“I’ve got your back,” Nowitzki muttered on the way to the floor.

Nowitzki had everyone’s now – Jason Terry and Jason Kidd(notes), Rick Carlisle and Mark Cuban. Maybe most of the nation wanted to see the so-called Three Kings of the Miami Heat met with resistance, a challenge, and yet they were left to witness Dwyane Wade(notes) and LeBron James(notes) dancing on these Dallas basketball graves for most of the game. Everyone else on these Mavericks seethed, but Nowitzki never noticed the Heat’s preening with a late 15-point lead.

Nowitzki doesn’t rely on emotion to galvanize and inspire his game, but the steely detachment that comes with tens of thousands of hours of shooting, the muscle memory of the biggest shots in the biggest moments. All his life, Nowitzki was the nice guy, the big lug that would forever come close and forever be remembered as one of the Hall of Fame players without the ultimate validation of victory.

Now, he had absorbed every blow from Wade and James, and he was still standing, still swinging in the final minutes. There were 24.5 seconds on the clock out of the timeout, and it ticked down until the ball found its way to Nowitzki. He was going to the rim, and going with absolute audacity. From right to left, he ripped the ball through the air, dribbled past Chris Bosh(notes), past flailing Heat arms and hands, and never hesitated to raise the ball into the left hand with a freshly torn tendon in its index finger. The ball dropped into the basket with 3.6 seconds left – his eighth and ninth straight points to end one of the most improbable, incredible and indelible comebacks in NBA Finals history.

Out of nowhere, out of a hellacious resolve, the scoreboard finally flickered: Dallas 95, Miami 93.

Suddenly, this is a series again. Suddenly, the Mavericks are alive. And maybe most of all, the Mavericks delivered the Heat something that no one else had in these playoffs: a punch in the mouth. The Heat had been constructing an invincibility about themselves, a deliberate and dominating disposition. This game had been so easy for the Heat. Wade had 36 points on a dizzying array of shots and devastating dunks, and this was the 2006 Finals all over again. Wade had his way, and Dirk threatened to become a prop on the Heat’s path to immortality.

So yes, Wade drilled a 3-pointer with a little more than seven minutes left to make it 88-73, and the Heat were so clearly intoxicated with hubris. And right there, within a whisper of the Mavericks’ bench, Wade and James preened and celebrated the scoreboard. The Mavericks were humiliated, humbled and suddenly angered. They called timeout, and Terry met eyes with Nowitzki in the huddle. “There’s no way we’re going out like this!” the little guard blurted over the din.

The Mavericks were getting danced upon and dunked on, and the scoreboard should’ve suggested that these Heat – and maybe this series – had become a runaway train. All around Carlisle these Mavericks finally gathered, and here’s what the coach would tell them: Remember the Oklahoma City game? Well, we came back from 15 points with four minutes left. Now, look up there, Carlisle said, nodding to the scoreboard. We’ve got seven minutes left. We’ve got extra time.

And so everything started with a stop on these Heat and another. James drove to the rim, had an easy layup and Nowitzki marveled simply, “He short-armed it.”

The Heat were a mess in the final minutes, transforming an aggressive, attacking offense into a tentative team trying to run the clock out. Wade had scored on an electric array of baskets, but James found himself running the shot clock down and tossing long, off balance 3-pointers at the buzzer.

Terry had been silent in this series, but suddenly started making shots. Kidd stopped turning the ball over. And Nowitzki was grabbing rebounds out of a tangle of bodies, and preparing himself for the final stunning minutes when he would score on a jump shot and layup to tie the game 90-90 and, finally, a long, sure 3-pointer with 26.7 seconds left. Now, it was 93-90 Mavericks, and the rollicking, rolling championship sway within the arena had been replaced with a stunned silence.

Terry lost his man on the inbounds play, let Mario Chalmers(notes) drill a 3-pointer, and Nowitzki wanted to kill him. Just beat him to a bloody pulp. It’s hard to stay angry with the gregarious Terry, even with the stakes so high, and it wouldn’t be long until Nowitzki had honored his promise with that fabulous, fitting drive to redemption. Everyone on the floor expected the Heat to use the foul they had to give, but Bosh never did.

Nowitzki rolled to the rim, laid the ball on the glass and this turned into an epic ending, a forever game that changes everything about these Finals. Once more, this was the Heat celebrating too soon, too boisterously. The price paid wouldn’t come in perception, but a reality: They lost control of this series, lost home court and now must grind two of three victories in Dallas to return to Miami for Game 6 with a 3-2 series lead.

Once, the Mavericks were considered an easy out in tough times. They were short on toughness, on physicality, on resilience. Five years ago, they had the Heat down 2-0 and a 13-point lead in the fourth quarter of Game 3 before crumbling. Now, they keep coming and coming, all poise and persistence and perspective.

“We’ve got a lot of guys on their last legs,” Tyson Chandler(notes) said softly in the visiting locker room. A lot of last legs and last stands to be champions. Now, Nowitzki is on a hell-bent run to will these Mavericks to the finish line. Yes, Dirk could’ve strangled Terry in that final huddle for losing that Heat shooter in the corner, for forcing Nowitzki to thrust these Mavs on his back one more time and deliver one more booming drive to the rim, to redemption.

“I’ve got your back,” Nowitzki told him on his way back to the court, but he was speaking to everyone here. From Carlisle to Cuban, Kidd to Chandler, those big, broad shoulders can burden so much now. Ball in his hands, NBA Finals on the line, and suddenly there was no more dancing on the shores of Biscayne Bay, no more preening. Terry had been right about one thing: The Mavericks wouldn’t go that way, wouldn’t let these Finals turn into a coronation. Nowitzki hadn’t come to be a foil for the Heat’s stars, but the biggest and baddest closer in the gymnasium.

Out of nowhere, Nowitzki raised his arms in the stunned silence of American Airlines Arena on Thursday night. Out of Dirk Nowitzki’s guile, out of his genius, salvation belonged to the Dallas Mavericks. Damn right he had their backs.

Miami needs a damned offense. How many times are we going to see LeBron or Wade bring the ball up the court, wave off another guy and proceed to play ISO ball and wait for that moment to put up a circus shot? If there were sets in place, they may have been able to secure those 1-2 more baskets they needed to stave off that comeback.

Yup , it had nothing to do with the Heat and all to do with Dallas ...

Quite the opposite, really. Miami took the foot off the gas thinking it was over. Started settling for jumpers. Got tight when things got close and couldn't get it turned back on. This game could doom Miami. Funny how a team can go from being in complete control to being at a disadvantage so quickly. So while Dallas deserves huge credit for not quitting and then for getting it done, this was more about Miami blowing it than Dallas coming back. Miami was in complete control and had the game in the bag and made the error of taking the win for granted and not closing it out. Looked like the early season Miami.

As with any comeback/collapse, it takes two sides. Dallas hit all their shots, Miami forgot how to drive to the hoop. That tactic never makes sense to me. When aggressive offense meets aggressive defense, generally fouls are called in favor of the offense. Miami was content dribbling for a while and chucking up horrid shots. Unacceptable. But Dallas pushed that offense, riddled their D, and hit everything.

Great comeback.

btw, are people really complaining about the "celebration?" How was that a celebration? Miami went up 15 and Wade and Bron jawed to each other in excitement. Jeez, people are sensitive.

Bob does not represent ALL Mavs fans. Although I must say that after watching the Heat do their in-game celebration and dunks it was hilarious to watch the Mavs comeback and win it (and shove it down their throats). Hopefully they can keep it up at home!

If anything I think Mavs fans are frustrated because of the following reasons:
1) 2006
2) The media being all over the Heat nutsack
3) The heats in-game celebrations, the dunking and their overall arrogance.

I think those are good reasons for the Mavs and the fans to have a good time. Obviously there are more games to be played.

Bob does not represent ALL Mavs fans. Although I must say that after watching the Heat do their in-game celebration and dunks it was hilarious to watch the Mavs comeback and win it (and shove it down their throats). Hopefully they can keep it up at home!

If anything I think Mavs fans are frustrated because of the following reasons:
1) 2006
2) The media being all over the Heat nutsack
3) The heats in-game celebrations, the dunking and their overall arrogance.

I think those are good reasons for the Mavs and the fans to have a good time. Obviously there are more games to be played.

its weird that the media have been "all over the Heat nutsacks" but the general public wants nothing more than to see them lose

bars around here are packed with people rooting heavily against the Heat...and people in NJ could care less about anything but the Yankees these days

i don't get the "in game celebrations" though. Did I miss a part of the game last night? I saw the Wade three and didnt think it was showboating at all. I get the 2006 revenge thing, but not sure about the celebration thing

As with any comeback/collapse, it takes two sides.

Absolutely. I guess where I was coming from is that all Miami had to do is take/make one better shot, and/or get one stop, and it's a win. Instead they were content to take jump shots and three pointers and make it easy/easier for Dallas. Miami completely blew it. Do just a little bit better and nobody's talking about a comeback. Instead we're talking about how Dallas is overmatched and in trouble down 0-2.

Word is, Isiah isn't going to be hired officially per se, but will totally be advising James Dolan on moves.

Clearly it was going to be Isiah or Walsh. I know Walsh wasn't excited about the Carmelo trade. Walsh's contract was up, and apparently Dolan offered him a new contract -- with a 40% pay cut.

Quick thoughts about the game.

The tempo of this game was up, as I predicted. After going up 15, too many long shots. Long jumpers and 3balls. I expect that to change game 3. I expect LeBron and Wade to attack the rim more and get to the foul line.

Last play of the game, I didn't like Bosh 1v1 on Nowitzki on the perimeter. The Heat had a foul to give, and once Bosh was beat Bosh should've immediately fouled. Heck should've just fouled him before this when you were facing up Dirk. Help defense was late and LeBron didn't rotate over to stop Dirk's drive. Should've been UD or LeBron guarding Dirk in the first place.

LeBron, keep feeding Wade when he has the hot hand. Forget padding your stats. Vice versa in the upcoming games.

CB1, you have got to step it up.

Elway didn't win a championship until he had a ton of veteran support either.

Dirk's reputation is now that of the comeback king. The most crazy, clutch player in the league. The guy who is never out of a game. He seized that rep from Kobe in round two, and it has grown by leaps and bounds, especially considering that nobody has done what he has done in the Finals since Michael Jordan.

Sorry, but the Dirk narrative has changed. You're just regurgitating what has been said in places where nobody really knows anything about the guy, and haven't updated their opinion of him since 2002.

You know who the last person was who did what Dirk did in the closing moments last night? Michael Jordan. Not Shaq, not Bryant, not Duncan, not Wade, and certainly not LeBron James. That's not my observation...thats the observations of the Elias Sports Bureau and some writer over at NBA.com.

If he wins the Finals you might as well compare him to Jordan because the rest of his team is a bunch of roleplayers on offense.

No disrespect to Dirk. He's a great player and has had a superlative postseason. But please don't compare him to Jordan. Michael did it game after game, year after year. Dirk is 32 years old and in his 13th year in the league. Michael was not only perhaps the best offensive player in the league but also possibly the best defensive player. He made everyone around him better. As good as Nowitzki is he's really not in the same conversation.

The more I watch that, the more confused I am at how people are "offended." he hit a three, a time out is immediately called (players generally walk to the bench at this point) but as with any stoppage of play after a big score (whether it be an and 1 or, in this case, a huge 3 before a time out) the player gets excited by his accomplishment while another may congratulate him. There was no taunting, it was barely even all that animated. What they did was no different from an exuberant high five or a chest bump.

People are ****ing beyond sensitive or just looking for a reason to hate. That was hardly a "celebration"

The more I watch that, the more confused I am at how people are "offended." he hit a three, a time out is immediately called (players generally walk to the bench at this point) but as with any stoppage of play after a big score (whether it be an and 1 or, in this case, a huge 3 before a time out) the player gets excited by his accomplishment while another may congratulate him. There was no taunting, it was barely even all that animated. What they did was no different from an exuberant high five or a chest bump.

People are ****ing beyond sensitive or just looking for a reason to hate. That was hardly a "celebration"

It was the 7-second "swan arm" held up and the slow mosey in front of the opposing team's bench that sparked things.

1. Dwyane Wade, Miami, 2006

It's hard to overstate how awesome Wade was in leading the Heat to their lone championship, particularly in the final four games when Miami rallied from a 2-0 deficit to stun the Mavs.

Wade started the comeback by leading the Heat back from a 13-point fourth quarter deficit in Game 3, scoring 12 points in the final 6 minutes to send the game to OT. He also made the biggest play of the series with his crazy dribbling foray to the rim at the end of overtime in Game 5 that -- controversially -- earned a whistle from referee Bennett Salvatore and a trip to the line for the winning free throws.

For the series, Wade averaged 34.7 points, 7.8 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 2.7 steals -- and this in a slow-paced series (neither team cleared the century mark in regulation in any of the six games). His basket attacks were so deadly because the Mavs couldn't stop fouling him. Wade shot a whopping 97 free throws in the six games -- the most of any player since the merger -- including 25 in Game 5.

Overall, Wade's 33.8 PER is easily the best of any Finals performer since the merger. While it seems strange to have somebody besides Michael Jordan in the top spot, the truth is Jordan never dominated a Finals to this extent. At the time, many called Wade's performance Jordanesque. It turns out they might have been selling him short.

Yeah, he can just attack the rim any time he want. The other night he just decided not to in the fourth quarter, it had NOTHING to do with the Mavs defense. NOTHING AT ALL!

The longer this series goes on the more it favors the Mavs. They have the edge in coaching and more chess moves to make. All the Heat can do is run another iso with James or Wade. Hey, maybe that fadeaway three pointer will fall this time, boys!

Hell, do you realize what happens if Peja, Barea or Terry get hot? Heat lose another game. God forbid two of the three get hot in one game...BLOWOUT.

The Mavericks rallied from 15 down the other night for one reason and one reason only - TO WIN THE GAME. You don't come all the way back like that and not win. It just wouldn't be right.

Dirk's finger was injured for one reason ONLY - to magnify his greatness. Terry's ****up on Chalmers? Happened for one reason ONLY - to give Dirk another play to make his legend even greater.

The cameras caught Wade acting like a big baby for one reason ONLY - TO SHOW WHAT AN UTTERLY PATHETIC ASSHOLE HE IS.

At the end of the day, what really matters is Wade having to live his life with that vicious cocktail of STDs running through his system.

I wonder if it was a flare up of Herpes that caused him to flop on the ground holding his eye after game 2?

How can anyone root for these guys and not be completely turned off by their putrid mixture of braggadocio and flopping? They somehow mix the worst of basketball and the worst of soccer simultaneously.

this is the NBA thread though.....again I'm not a Heat fan or a Mavs hater

but it is the Mavs fan "stereotype" to be a dismayed fan with a long history of losing

kinda like a Blazers fan

The Blazers did overcome the odds behind the play of Bill Walton to beat the original superteam Philly 76ers featuring high-flying physical freak Dr. J in the 1977 NBA Finals.

Dirk just passed Dr. J in playoff scoring on Thursday.

It's funny how a stop and a bucket, then another stop and another bucket can turn momentum and change the confidence or lack there of in players. That's why you see coaches call those timeout's after a mini run (4-6 points). They know how quickly things can snowball. You could see it in the Heat that last game. Every time the Mavs inched closer, the more tight the Heat became. Shots would not fall. It really is funny how much the mental part of the game influences the physical.

When the Mavs win tonight will maven spit in the face of history?

In the 2-3-2 series format (since 1985), when the NBA Finals is tied 1-1, the winner of Game 3 has gone on to win the series on all 10 occasions.

I wouldn't put too much in that Game 3-Finals winner stat. Even Spoelstra admitted it's too small of a sample size. I doubt either team gets all 3 in Dallas, but it's to the Mavs advantage to get 2 of them to ease the pressure a bit in a potential 6/7 in Miami.

Jason Terry: LeBron and D-Wade Celebration Was Turning Point

http://basketball.realgm.com/images/nba/4.2/wiretap/photos/2006/miamibigthree_110527.jpg

Dallas ended Game 2 on a 22-5 run, which said plenty about their mental toughness and a little about Miami as well. The Heat was done in by a lethal combination of premature celebrating and inexplicably settling for long jump shots.

"Every team when they go on a run does something," Dwyane Wade said. "Celebration is confetti and champagne bottles. There wasn't a celebration. If it pumped them up ... they won the game."

The Mavs appeared to be done when Wade completed an emphatic 13-0 run with a 3-pointer. He and the Heat celebrated like the game was over, a moment that was not lost on the Mavs.

"It was the turning point of the game," said Jason Terry, who scored eight of his 16 points in the fourth. "If we don't score, we're pretty much dead."

After the Heat took an 88-73 lead with 7:15 left to play, Miami missed 10 of its last 11 shots. Seven of those shots were 3-pointers, including Wade's runner from behind the arc that hit the back rim as time expired.

Scott Foster is Ref to watch tonight. Miami gets to the line more frequently in games under his whistle and the opponent gets called for more fouls. It's the other way round in Mavs games.
