If Miami doesn't win the title this year I wonder if they'll even win more than 1.

They will win 1 but winning multiple depends on this season. Wade is almost 30 and unlike Kobe he still attacks the basket with no consequences in mind.

This year is a must win for Miami if they want multiple titles. Also losing this finals puts Lebron forever behind Kobe and Jordan. Kobe and Jordan got sidekicks and won titles.

There is no excuse for 2 superstars in their prime with an all star in his prime and good role players in Anthony( great defensive big), chalmers and bibby are good shot makers while chalmers plays great defense. Oh and haslem and mike miller off the bench

No excuses in my book. Both wade and Lebron have to win this series for me to think anything of their legacies

Dallas has to take advantage of the 2-3-2 spread with the odds against the Heat now that they have to play 3 straight road games.

Interesting Fact: Dallas just gave the Heat their first home loss of their entire playoff run.

This could be really bad news for the Super friends. Playing 3 straight road games in the finals against the team that just beat you in the final 6 minutes at home looks really bad. Hopefully Dallas can win the first 2 games at home. The Heat will then probably win game 5 to avoid elimination.

I just don't see the killer instinct from Wade or LeBron. LeBron tries to put on sort of a face as if he's a fearless basketball player, but I don't buy it. I don't see him stepping up in the next 3 road games in the clutch. If anything, Wade will carry the team just like 2006.

Let's go Dallas. Keep the banners and parades on the west coast. Don't let those super friends intimidate you one bit. Make a few shots, and they'll get scared and leave it to Dallas to win the game.

Miami's shot selection was terrible in the final minutes. It seemed like every shot was a long range 3 or a contested jumper. Hero ball. The defense was sloppy and complacent. Where was the relentless defense that bothered Nowitzki in game 1 and the first three quarters?

Nowitzki will get the credit for this comeback, but Shawn Marion is Dallas' silent hero of the first two games.

That is what they do when they feel comfortable. They just jack up ill advised shots and play hero ball. LeBron and Wade combined to shoot 14 threes. That is absolutely idiotic. The Mavs got down by so much because of their turnovers. If you turn the ball over against the Heat, it's impossible to stop them.

Yes, Marion has made LeBron and Wade work for their shots, and his offense has been a great bonus.

I still think Miami will win it all. They're a good road team and they get calls on the road too. The 3rd quarter of their closeout game against Chicago made me cringe.

It's tough to really predict an outcome, but Dallas stealing game 2 could very well be the turning point in the series. Dallas has seemed to dig themselves out of every hole, and it just seems like it's their time to win. Keys for Dallas is to limit turnovers and win the battle on the glass (Tyson Chandler did a much better job in game 2).

Got a bad feeling about this. The Heat are great on the road and respond well to adversity.

Mavericks are relying on the jump shot too much, and Dirk isn't getting enough attempts.

Not a great game by either team. Miami looks like they'll win this series just because they have more players who can just score at any point
