Re: 2011 NBA Finals Game 5 thread: Miami Heat at Dallas Mavericks
I expect Lebron to respond from his game 4 performance, however it could back fire if he try's too hard to control the game. We will finally see what he is truly made of tonight. With tha being said, it should be interesting how Marion plays and how they play each other.
I also expect Dirk to have a good shooting night. He had a slightly off night last game. If he gets on a roll and gets to the line he could rack up a big score.
But as we have seen other Mavs need to step up and score. Chandler did it and terry improved his output in game 4, stevenson hit a couple open jumpers, aswell as marion, who in limited minutes had a good out put.
Despite playing awesome defense, Kidd did not score. If they spread the floor well, look for him to him a few open J's with the clock running down. JJ is also on the verge of have a good night, looked dangerous in game 4, but blew open lay ups (!).
If chalmers gets open, it could be deadly for Dallas, especially if they go to the zone and Miami beat them to spots on the floor.
I got Dallas just (more hope than reason), they are at home, but if Miami win I wont be surprised. I dunno if Wade can continue to shoot like this the whole series. Even if he dosen't Bosh and James will carry the load.
