Whoo, that's a relief!
Shawn Marion and the Mavs can breathe easier after rallying from a 15-point fourth-quarter deficit for a 95-93 win against LeBron James and the Heat in Game 2 of the Finals on Thursday in Miami.
Can't deny Dirk
A bum finger can't keep Dirk Nowitzki from coming up big against the Heat in Game 2. Nowitzki had 24 points and 11 rebounds, including the winning layup in the final seconds — with his injured hand.

Still so rough, so tough
Dallas' JJ Barea, who missed 7 of 8 shots in Game 1, finds the going still pretty tough against Chris Bosh and the Heat in Game 2, missing 5 of 7.
Heat want it more?
It certainly looked like that during the first half of Game 2, as Miami's Mike Miller grabs a loose ball from Dallas' JJ Barea. The Mavs committed 18 turnovers.
Finals get a facelift
The officials need to be reminded that LeBron and the Heat get all the calls at home. Right? Well, the Heat had more free-throw attempts (24 to 21) in Game 2, but made fewer (16 to 17) than the Mavs. NBAE/Getty ImagesJesse D. Garrabrant
Wade on fire
Dwyane Wade explodes for 36 points against Dirk Nowitzki and the Mavs, but it's not enough in the end.
