Heat Come from Behind to Top the Mavs 93-90

Dwyane Wade overcame one of his worst shooting performances in the first half of a game last night in Dallas and led the Heat to a 93-90 win over the Mavericks. After going one for ten from the field, he turned it around in the second half scoring 16 of his 18 points. In the third quarter, it was Wade’s shooting that enabled them to go on a 12-0 run to take an eight point lead. After that, Miami held the lead the rest of the way.

Chris Bosh led the Heat with 20 points. Luol Deng contributed 15 points including a three with 1:04 to go in the game.

Dallas came within two points when Dirk Nowitzki scored a three with 17.9 seconds left. At the free throw line, Wade only made his first shot, allowing the Mavericks an opportunity to tie the game with another three. In the last possession of the game, Dallas’ Raymond Felton could not get the ball to Nowitzki for the final shot and his attempt was off the mark. The Mavericks’ coach, Rick Carlisle said he probably should have called a timeout before their last possession.

Hassan Whiteside returned to the lineup after a hip injury kept him out for the last six games. Coming in the game off the bench in the second quarter, he contributed ten points in 17 minutes of play. After the game Coach Erik Spoelstra talked about Whiteside’s return and how he exceeded his expectations.

The Mavs leading scorer was Nowitzki pouring in 28 points. Their second leading scorer was former Gator, Chandler Parsons, with 12 points.

Dallas now stands with a record of 28-24. They will play at home against the San Antonio Spurs Friday night.

The Miami Heat are now 28-22. Their next match-up will be in Charlotte Friday night.
