Big D Trumps the Big 3
It was a long time coming for Dirk Nowitzki…and Jason Kidd…and for Mark Cuban and the Dallas Mavericks. The Mavericks took advantage of their deep bench and Jason Terry stepped up big as Dallas stunned the Miami Heat 105-95 in Game 6 of the NBA Finals to capture the franchise’s first NBA Championship. Nowitzki, who had a miserable first half, again made key shots in the fourth quarter as helped deny super trio LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh a title in their first year together. Dirk, who almost singlehandedly beat Miami in three games in this series, won the NBA Finals MVP award. Click the image to enlarge.
Provided there is a season next year, it’s possible we could see a rematch next June. Both Miami and Dallas are the early odds-on favorites to win it all next year.
