Default I'll be honest -- it wasn't until game 5 that I felt Dallas had a chance.

Game 1 was close, but Miami pulled away in a BIG way at the end. Made Dallas look simple.

Game 2 Miami was dominant but got lazy and Dallas had a really good comeback, but I still attributed it to Miami relaxing more than Dallas having a chance.

Game 3 Miami pretty much punked Dallas on their own floor and right here I thought Dallas couldn't contend with Miami's athleticism and skill.

Game 4 was a game that Miami was in control of for 90% of it, but again at the end I felt they got lazy and allowed Dallas back in, but in hindsight, Miami didn't do anything. Dallas was just the better team.

Game 5 was the game where I finally started thinking Dallas could win the series. It took them 4 games to figure out Miami's defense, but when they finally did, they never looked back.

Game 6 was supposed to be another competitive classic but Dallas basically just punked Miami all over the court. Dallas had figured out Miami's defense and Miami couldn't do anything. Dallas was getting open shots and Miami was basically finished. They wanted none of it.

It just goes to show how important certain things are like intelligence and coaching. The Mavericks looked like they were going to get embarrassed in this series, but they figured Miami out and made the right adjustments.

You are not the only one. The first two games the Mavs won, I thought they were just fortunate to steal it.

i thought they made their chances apparent and imminent in game 2

i gave them a 30-40% chance before the series started, they have pieces Boston/Chicago didn't have and they were hot as the devil's **** coming in

I picked em in 6... Had my doubts after game 1 i think but once Dallas knew they could win they grew this incredible confidence in themselves and they showed that all playoffs long.

that's what is amazing about sports. Mavs lose game 2 and still lose game 3, obviously we're looking at a possible Heat sweep.

but they didnt!

Game 2:2011 \ Game 3: 2006

Yup. They were really a heavy underdog.

It was really amazing to see Dallas figure Miami out after a few games. Once Dallas did it's like Miami crumbled. The nerd standing up to the bully an the bully not knowing what to do.

I was thinking they had a good chance when they were up by 10 with 2 minutes to go in game 6.

the moment d-wade gave lebron an earful in game 3, i realized that the heat are just hanging on when the mavs are turning it up in the 4th, that other than wade, the heat have kaka in their pants.
that's when i thought they can win. by the end of game 4, they had them figured out.
