Default 2011 NBA Finals Game 1 thread: Dallas Mavericks at Miami Heat

Miami Heat are on a 4 game winning run after running out victorious against Chicago Bulls in their last away game. Dallas Mavericks are however on a 3 game winning run, after winning against the Oklahoma City Thunder, and look to increase that run at the Miami Heat. The Miami Heat are 8-2 in their last 10 outings but were swept by the Dallas Mavericks earlier in the season (all games played in 2010). Miami Heat are 38-11 in the American Airlines Arena and the Dallas Mavericks are 1-0 in the American Airlens Arena. After 2 games the series will be switched to Dallas' American Airlines Center for 3 straight games. If Dallas are to win they will need a major game from star German Dirk Norwitzki.

Projected starting line ups:
Dallas Mavericks have coach Rick Carlisle.

Miami Heat have owner Micky Arison.

I think it will be an exciting game especially looking at the battle between Chris Bosh and Dirk Nowitzki, two of the hottest players in American Airlines history IMO. Maybe Caron Butler will play with Dallas Mavericks soon, so he is on the up. I will predict a 98-96 overtime win for Miami. Mike Bibby (former Vancouver Grizzlies player) will have assists. And meybe the Kidd (a.k.a. Jason Kidd)

Miami Heat have, I believe, the best dancer in the NBA in Catrina Loveheart:

Extra info: FYI the 2006 NBA Finals was the championship series of the 200506 National Basketball Association season. The Miami Heat won the championship in six games over the Dallas Mavericks, winning the final game at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, and becoming the third team to win a championship after trailing 02 in the series. This was Dallas' and Miami's first appearance in the finals, as well as the second matchup of teams from Florida and Texas (with the Houston Rockets and Orlando Magic participating in the 1995 NBA Finals). Heat guard Dwyane Wade was named Most Valuable Player of the series. It was also the first Finals not to have either the Los Angeles Lakers or San Antonio Spurs since 1998, and the only one of the 2000s decade.
