 2011 NBA Finals Results: Mavs Avenge 2006 Loss To Heat, Win First Title In Franchise History
posted 6 years ago

2011 NBA Finals Results: Mavs Avenge 2006 Loss To Heat, Win First Title In Franchise History - Betting on MLB baseball will be the focus of the summer, but players will look back on the 2011 NBA Finals happily as it was one of the best and most intriguing series in recent memory. Dallas got their chance to avenge a controversial 2006 NBA Finals Odds loss to Miami, who had reloaded by luring LeBron James and Chris Bosh to South Beach, but the Mavericks used a team game and grit to upend the talented Heat.

 

The Mavericks exorcised their demons with a six-game win over the Heat, including a gratifying win in Miami to close out the series, and there are a few reasons for this. The first is MVP Dirk Nowitzki, who averaged 26.0 points and 9.7 rebounds, and outside of a poor first half in the clincher, he was the best player in the series, which is something you would have received a sports betting bonus for if you had called that before the Finals began. But he couldn’t do it on his own, which he was doing for the first part of the series, and after he called longtime teammate Jason Terry out, “Jet” responded, particularly in Games 5 and 6 when he took his game to another level and average 24.0 points, hitting 67% of his shots and going 50% from beyond the arc. But the entire team stepped up: Shawn Marion played excellent defense on James and the Heat couldn’t stop him offensively, Jason Kidd finally earned his first title after 17 years because of some timely three-point shooting and surprisingly good defense, J.J. Barea provided a spark when he was inserted into the starting lineup, Tyson Chandler held down the fort in the post, DeShawn Stevenson was a nuisance on both ends of the floor (as well as in the media) and Rick Carlisle convinced them to buy into his team-first game.

 

As for the Heat, which was more of a spectacle than any episode of WWE Monday Night Raw, the story is James’ inability to take his game to another level, especially in the fourth quarter where he wasn’t assertive at all, and he was called out by Dwyane Wade, who simply ran out of gas in the final game after carrying the team for the most of the series on both ends of the floor. Chris Bosh was about as good as anyone could expect, while Mario Chalmers played much better than anyone would have thought. Udonis Haslem did his best, but you have to remember, he spend most of the year on the sidelines with a foot injury and couldn’t hold up. Eddie House, Mike Bibby and Mike Miller were useless, but House was the only Miami player outside of Wade who didn’t look scared in Game 6. The Heat have a lot of work to do for next year, but they’ll still be online sports betting favorite to win the title. Check out the latest MLB Odds & UFC Odds.
