Default Let's be Honest the Mavericks Have No Chance

-Heat dismantled a very good young Sixers team like a Tyrannosaurus playing with a puppy.

-Heat destroyed the Celtics a very good defensive team without two of their most valuable hustle guys Haslem and Miller.

-Heat annihilated statistically the best team in the NBA the Chicago Bulls. Bulls only won ONE GAME. Bulls also statistically had the best defense in the NBA.

-Heat have two super stars and one above average all-star.

-Mavericks struggled versus a not very good Blazers team with a crippled Brandon Roy.

-Mavericks haven't face anything near the defense of even the Celtics, let alone the Bulls. Both teams which Miami destroyed.

-Mavericks aren't as athletic as the Heat.

-Mavericks aren't as good at closing games as the Heat. Lebron James now has proven that he can close out games. Once he smells blood in the water, Lebron James puts the nail in the coffin.

-Unlike in the Thunder and Lakers series, Dirk will not see any good shots versus Miami's superior team defense.

Dude I'm rooting for the Heat, but your analysis just makes it seem like the Mavs will be a cakewalk. It will be a tough matchup for both.

People are gonna be shook if Dallas comes out shooting well in game 1 and steals home court right off the bat.

I'm rooting for the Mavs, but I somewhat agree with the OP (I think it's 65/35 Heat will win)
I think this is an all-time great team, though few have realized it yet (they've realized the talent level, but not how good these guys are historically)

-tenacious defense (quick, long, focused, cohesive)
-2nd best small forward ever
-2nd/3rd best shooting guard ever
-underrated, highly intelligent coach
-highly skilled 3rd option

when a team is this focused/talented defensively, and even more talented offensively, I just don't see how they can lose, barring a complete lapse in confidence. The one flaw is the lack of height, but Joel Anthony, despite having the hand-eye-coordination of a person with downsyndrome, has become a homeless man's Ben Wallace (I didn't think he had it in him)

I think we are witnessing the beginning of the next "MJ/Pippen Bulls"
But, like Dirk's greatness, it will take most observers a while to realize what is happening.

And in the next few years, Lebron/Dwyane's decline in athleticism could very well be off-set by an improved supporting cast, and their growth in terms of basketball IQ.

The rest of the league is in serious trouble. It's not a bad thing though.
Pro sports are at their best when there is a clear King to dethrone.
What would baseball be without the Yankees?

The 76ers were scrappy and almost won 2 games.

The Celtics were riddled with injuries and still almost won 3 games.

The Bulls choked in 2 games, won 1, and they're young.


The Mavs are better than all three of the teams Miami faced, and Dirk is playing at an insane level.

So, shut up and stop being so cocky.

How can you say that Miami is better at closing out games when Dallas has Dirk Nowitzki on there team? Both teams have closed out well this post season, but you can't say Maimi is better.

Your last point is silly about not getting good shots against the Heat. The Dallas offesnive execution is the best in the league and Dirk will be raining in jumpers over everyone on the Heat. The Dallas offense is better than anything the Heat have faced.

The Mavs are an experienced team compared to the Heat. The Heat are more athletic as you say, but so are the Thunder, but the Mavs found ways to slow them down in transition especially.

You say the 76ers are a good side, but the Blazers are trash? Wow.

Mavs in 6 or 7.

If Mavs keep shooting like they have been, I say Mavs win it.
Mavs have some good individual defenders and play a very solid team D.
Should be a good series.

It s funny how before each series, haters make Heat opponents elite and then, after the series, they make them look trash.

Put the Mavs in the situation Chicago was in in games 4 and 5. Don't see them losing both games. Think Kidd would have thrown those bad passes, or Dirk missed a game tying FT?

The scores will be much different than because of Mavs Offense, Heat Defense.

The real playoffs start in the 2nd round (unless you are a spur), and by that logic, the third time's the charm.

how did that work out for chicago ?



winning game 1 by 20 points had no effect whatsoever. The heat throw one stinker game every series where they just take the night off giving little to no energy.. and those 3 games were their only losses in the postseason.
