Jeremy Lin scored 28 points and added a career-high 14 assists as the Knicks took down the defending champion Mavericks, 104-97.
LeBron James and the Miami Heat couldn’t keep the Dallas Mavericks from winning the most recent NBA championship. They did a nice job, however, of getting the Mavs’ title defense off to an ugly start.
While we should focus on how good Dallas was (as opposed to how bad LeBron James was), it’s hard to listen to LeBron talk and not root against the guy.
Before we start, everyone needs to slow their roll. LeBron James had a bad series but he is still a great player.
LeBron James took his talents to South Beach to win titles, so he’d have All-Star help around him. Former Mavericks point guard Derek Harper told WFAN’s Benigno & Roberts that LeBron made the right move — King James just doesn’t have what it takes to do it alone.
Jerry Recco worked through multiple distractions and went on to deliver a fantastic update on Monday, highlighted by the Dallas Mavericks being crowned NBA Champions in South Beach.
The Dallas Mavericks beat the Heat last night in Miami 105-95. By doing so, they captured the franchise’s first ever NBA championship. Dirk Nowitzki was named the NBA Finals MVP and LeBron James’ image took a huge, huge hit.
Dirk Nowitzki said Saturday that Dwyane Wade and LeBron James were “a little childish, a little ignorant” in a video that appears to show them mocking the Mavericks star’s recent illness.
Dirk Nowitzki waited five long years for that elusive third victory over Miami, yet there was only a short celebration when it finally came. He briefly thrust both arms in the air, a sea of blue screaming around him, but then quickly walked off the floor.
The NBA Finals are down to a three-game series, with the final two in Miami. One trend is abundantly clear: these two teams are so close in talent level that these games are going to be very, very close.
LeBron James was leaning against a wall outside the Miami Heat locker room on Tuesday morning, talking about how he believes his personal statistics do not matter. This one did.
Sometimes the NBA is complicated. Other times it’s simple. This is one of those simple times. If the Mavericks want to make any sort of run in this series, they’ll need to shoot the ball better.
Bosh made a 16-foot, go-ahead jumper from the baseline with 39.6 seconds left and Haslem pestered Dirk Nowitzki the rest of the way as the Heat held on for an 88-86 victory over the Dallas Mavericks.
We’re going to find something out about the Heat, now that they are facing some true adversity for the first time in the playoffs. Will they come together like a team or will their stars all try to be heroes?
Dwyane Wade and LeBron James were rejoicing for the entirety of their walk from the Dallas bench to the Miami bench. Heat players spilled onto the floor, many with fists in the air. Miami 88, Dallas 73, 7:14 remaining. Game over, right? Not a chance.
