Beat the Heat! That’s a phrase with a double meaning now in Dallas. What a ride these playoffs have been. From such low expectations this season after the debacle of 2006 and playoff failure after failure from the loss to 8th seed Golden State the following season to the San Antonio loss in 2010.
Obviously, the next two games are must wins for the Mavericks – they simply must get back to Miami up 3-2 for any hope of taking the championship.
