Game Thread: Heat (1-1) at Mavericks (1-1): GAME THREE

WHO: The Dallas Mavericks host the Miami Heat

WHAT: NBA Finals 2011, Game Three

WHERE: American Airlines Center, Dallas, TX

WHEN: 7:00pm CT


THE STORY: It's like getting a clean slate, and getting home court advantage in a best-of-five series for the Mavericks now. This 2-3-2 format is bizarre, to say the least, but Dallas did what they had to do by stealing a win on the road. We are still waiting on our bench to show their true colors, and if Dirk can continue his miraculous playoff production, we should be alright. I'm really enjoying all the support we're getting from fans of other teams- keep 'em coming! As always, no trolling on Peninsula is Mightier, and no trolls here, please. Below are some articles for your reading pleasure. I'm not at this game... and much as I'd like to attend some more, I'd be happier with a Dallas sweep and a championship ring.
