Mavericks win 5th in row, 106-95 over Miami Heat -- The AP reports: While Dirk Nowitzki drove for a layup during Dallas’ game-turning run to start the second half, he split a gap between Dwyane Wade and LeBron James—with all three of All-Stars in the air at the same time—to get to the basket. Even with Wade’s new help in Miami, the Heat still can’t beat the Mavericks in the regular season. After losing for the fourth time in five games, 106-95 on Saturday night, the Heat (9-8) had a players-only meeting. That comes a month into the season that James and Dallas-born Chris Bosh joined Wade in Miami... Caron Butler scored seven of his 23 points in that third quarter spurt for the Mavericks, who haven’t lost a regular-season game against Miami in 6 1/2 years... James had 23 points, making only 5 of 19 field goals. Bosh and Wade both had 22 points. Nowitzki had 22 points for Dallas, while Tyson Chandler had 14 points and 17 rebounds.
