The Story:

Outside of the post-season, the Miami Heat have gone just 1-13 against the Mavericks since drafting Dwayne "Dallas Killer" Wade. The Mavericks are coming off of a really inspiring win against the hated Spurs, and now they have the chance to go for a back-to-back rival-kill. Miami may have Lebron and Bosh these days, but as their record shows, they aren't superhuman by any stretch of the word. They've been held under 100 points in five straight games, and Dallas is no slouch on scoring defense, so here's to hoping they go for six.
