Daily Debate: Will the Miami Heat Rebound After Tough Loss?

Dwyane Wade nailed a three-pointer with 7:13 left in the fourth quarter to give the Miami Heat an 88-73 lead, but a 20-2 run by the Dallas Mavericks, led by Jason Terry with eight points and Dirk Nowitzki with seven points, gave the Mavericks a 93-90 lead, on their way to a 95-93 win.  Will Wade, LeBron James, and Chris Bosh rebound in game three and win the series, or will Nowitzki and Terry lead the Mavericks to their first NBA Championship?  Voice your opinion on the Razz and Jazz Sports Blog Daily Debate.

    Miami got 3 Top scorers of Three NBA contender teams of 2010 (Cavs, Raptors, Heat) playing for them.

    Miami should be winning via blowouts.

    A semblance of competition might just give more credibility to the legitimacy of that ring.

      The Cleveland Cavaliers were NBA contenders last season but the Toronto Raptors didn’t make the playoffs and the Miami Heat won a game before being eliminated. It appears that you are someone who dislikes the Heat. Why do I say this? Your comment about the legitimacy of the championship. In the history books, does it say that Michael Jordan was retired in 1994 and 1995 when the Houston Rockets won two chips? Does it say the San Antonio Spurs won in a shortened season? No. History remembers who won, period.

    Dallas is a quality team with a great player and great supporting cast. The got here beating quicker and tougher teams than they are. This is a veteran team. You can’t expect Miami to win every game and sweep. This is at least a 6-7 game series. Look for Dallas to take 2 at home. I think the heat will win in 7 but it will not be easy. Remember both games were close till the 4th quarter where Miami played good defense and was able to take it until game 2 where Dallas decided they wanted to play and showed their courage and game. Miami got lazy and got beat at the end. Lessoned learned but Dallas is not going down without a fight. Look for a huge game from Dirk in game 4.

    What an exciting finish and I have only been watching the games in spots. I turned it on thinking that it was over as the commentators kept talking about the dominance of the Heat and the collapse of the Mavericks. Then to realize that there was still time on the clock and Dallas was improving their defense and hitting their shots, I was like “they can really win this” and I was very excited to see it happen. It would be nice to have unbiased commentating so that fans could watch the game and let the players decide the outcome. I applaud the Mavs for not giving up and cooling off the Heat’s firepower so they would have a win under their belt going to their own arena. Now, I am interested!!

    I hate taking the easy way out but I still think it could go either way. This 3rd game is pivital from a mental standpoint for both teams. Certainly it will send a message to the other team that they’re there to win it. I still like the Mav’s to take it however.

    Definitely think they will rebound. They have shown that they can handle adversity and this is just the slap in the face they needed.
