I don't see us winning this series because Miami is just too athletic and there defense is just too tough. But I will say that the Mavs heart and veteran leadership is what is keeping them in this series. I hope to God I'm wrong. Dirk is such a class guy and is all heart in the clutch. Dirk was playing through a fever, bad shooting and was getting hacked to death on his drives but he managed to come through with that clutch layup.

Tall Dirk and handsome indeed!

There is no way we beat Memohis without him though. I think people lose site of that since he played shit amd was a bad match up against Dallas.

Peppard: LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, protected by bodyguards, dine in uptown

And there came into Uptown two basketball stars who did not know Uncle John. Their names: LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.

John Giglio, or Uncle John to the cognoscente, is one of the most familiar faces on the local restaurant scene and one of the nicest guys around.

On Monday afternoon, the two Miami Heat stars showed up at 5 p.m. at Coal Vines, the pizzeria owned by Nick & Sam's partner Joe Palladino. "My Uncle John went over to their table to make sure everything was OK," says Joe. But Uncle John found out that LeBron and D-Wade were not alone.

"Two bodyguards popped up from another table," says Joe. "They told him that they don't want to be bothered."

Carlisle's moves give Mavs Game 4 edge
By John Hollinger


DALLAS -- Rick Carlisle said the players win the game, and in the big picture he’s right about that.

But in a series of razor-thin margins between the players on the Miami Heat and Dallas Mavericks, the slightest of adjustments can have an outsized impact. Three straight final-possession games have the Mavs and Heat justifiably tied at two apiece, and Tuesday it was the subtle adjustments Dallas’ coach made before and during the game that swung it.

We talked about Dallas’ superior depth heading into the series, but look at the box score and you’ll realize the Mavs were using a tighter rotation than Miami's. Carlisle made a fairly complex series of adjustments that involved changing his starting backcourt so that he could entirely reupholster his forward rotation, and then threw a few more wrinkles into his special fourth-quarter sauce as the Mavs once again rallied late.

Ultimately, he was using a 7.5-man rotation, with Brian Cardinal as the 0.5 with “remove only in case of emergency” tattooed on his warm-ups. Dallas’ bench only played 71 total minutes, barely more than the 67 from Miami; only six Mavericks scored.

And Carlisle made it work.

He made it work first by bringing DeShawn Stevenson off the bench and starting J.J. Barea at point guard. After a series of bad starts by Dallas’ starting lineup, Barea’s ball pressure and penetration got Dallas into a better offensive flow early in the game. After constantly finding themselves digging holes early in each half, the Dallas starting five was a +1 on Tuesday.

Starting Barea rather than Jason Terry kept Terry in his accustomed bench role (although it still limits his minutes -- he played 35 while the other prominent players on both sides played at least 39), and Carlisle pointed out it’s something Barea has done before. He started 16 consecutive games in the middle of the regular season.

“He gives us a different dimension to our team,” Carlisle said. “I thought he did a good job. His stats don’t look great, but his penetration helped us and his ball pressure helped us.”

Second, Stevenson coming off the pine allowed Carlisle to tweak his forward rotation. The Mavs felt Shawn Marion was playing too many minutes, largely because of the horrifying play of backup Peja Stojakovic, but using Barea in his place isn’t a realistic option. Stevenson, on the other hand, could come in and immediately relieve Marion in guarding LeBron James or Dwyane Wade.

“I knew we had to take Marion’s minutes down,” Carlisle said. “He can’t play 43 minutes. We can’t expect him to be down in a stance and picking up James full court and all those kinds of things. Stevenson was great.”

Stevenson, in fact, played 26 minutes despite theoretically being “benched” -- something he’s done only one other time since the All-Star break. Stevenson said he was given no indication before the game that he’d play so much; he was just told he’d be backing up Marion and to be ready.

The other aspect of the rotation rebuild was using Cardinal in Stojakovic’s place when Nowitzki got his rest late in the first and third quarters. Cardinal, as a true 4, relieved Marion of the need to defend Chris Bosh in stretches. And while he didn’t score, the sheer fact that he was less of a sieve than Stojakovic proved helpful.

Cardinal also had to act as the backup 5 when Brendan Haywood proved unready in the first half, laboring through three ineffective minutes. That takes us to the one area where Carlisle and the Mavs had genuinely good fortune -- Tyson Chandler was able to play 43 minutes and pick up only three fouls, avoiding the type of foul trouble that would have carved a gaping hole in Dallas' frontcourt rotation.

But coming down the stretch, Carlisle was able to throw a few other wrinkles into the mix.

First, he went to a zone defense down the stretch that flummoxed Miami’s offense. Granted, it hasn’t seemed particularly hard to force the Heat to take low-percentage shots in crunch time, but because Miami had rarely seen the zone this series, it fostered a special brand of confusion. The Heat scored only 14 points in the fourth quarter.

“To change up the pace a little bit,” Jason Terry said. “It worked for us.”

Second, he left Stevenson on the court and Marion on the pine for the game’s final 14 minutes. At the buzzer, it was Stevenson on Wade for Miami’s final play -- and if you’re curious, he said he was planning on fouling until Wade lost the ball in the backcourt.

On paper this is insanity -- Marion is just flat-out better. In this particular game, however, it messed up Miami’s rotations because there were four shooters in the floor. The final layup by Dirk Nowitzki came in part because Stevenson was spotting up in the corner rather than having Marion floating in the paint. Because of Peja’s struggles, it’s one of the few times this series Dallas has lined up with four shooters on the floor.

“We need four shooters out there,” Stevenson said. “It opens it up for Dirk.”

“It makes them honest. When Tyson went down the lane and got the foul, you’re either going to take that or a 3. So at the end of the game it helps us.”

All of those moves gave the Mavs just enough of a nudge to get past the Heat in this one, and leaves the ball in Erik Spoelstra’s court to come up with suitable answers in the now-pivotal Game 5 on Thursday.

The most impressive wrinkle, however, may have been offered by Carlisle at the end of his news conference afterward.

“We’ll see what we do in Game 5.”

That’s right -- he was completely non-committal about whether Dallas will continue to line up this way, or try again to tweak the rotation in a way that produces a momentary advantage. We have two days until tip-off, but the mind games have already begun.

Not in this series. He's too small for D on Wade and he doesn't make enough offensive contribution to warrant putting him in opposite Bibby, Chalmers, or Miller.

It is amazing how deep the hate for LeBron James runs in this thread. You would have thought the guy killed someone. I think it would be interesting if it is 3-2 Dallas coming back to Miami. Would be kinda cool to have a Game 7.

He brings the hate on himself. Coupled with the few idiots who want to compare him to MJ (one clown on this board even said LeBron's current achievements are comparable to Michael's) and you are going to get some haters.

I know I'm one.

Anybody want to say LeBron belongs in the same conversation as MJ now?
It's D-Wade's world and LB and Bosch are just living in it, no different than Shaq & Zo did.

Yeah, I could understand that too.

I just have a feeling the Mavs are going to win no matter how bleak it looks. They are just one of those teams. I've been wrong plenty of times in my life though :)

If they were my team I would be braced for the worst.

Series was over when the Heat won game 3 in Dallas.

If anyone thinks the Mavs are going to get a single close whistle once Wade and crew get back to Miami, they're insane.

If the Mavs win either of those games, they'll have to win it playing 5 on 7. We'll see a whole new level of Wade driving and getting bailed out by cheap whistles. We'll see LeBron take his ability to travel and bitch out officials without penalty to new heights.

I'm fully prepared for some absolutely disgraceful officiating in those two games.

Spot on.

Wade is going to get so many calls it's going to be ridiculous. So much for the NBA's stance that they aren't going to take it when players talk back.

David Stern is a crook and a bully that is drunk off his own power.

That said, if I never post again on this board, it's probably because he had me murdered.

Anyone that's watched any amount of NBA basketball can see this coming from a mile away. Hell, anyone that's ever watched an NBA finals game between Dwayne Wade and the Dallas Mavericks can see this coming. I've said it in a few NBA threads on here, but that 2006 Finals almost drove me away from the sport. It was truly a pathetic display.

And I fully expect to see it again. Afterall, Stern has to get his new King a ring now.

Yeah, so Dallas pulled one out of their azz last night, but sadly i still see them losing this series.

Dont remember his name, but one talking head summed it up best at the half, pointing out that they have been completely incapable of building any kind of real lead & sustaining it for any length of time, their backs are to the wall every single game.

That doesnt bode well at all.

Mavs led for 10 minutes in the 2nd quarter in game 1 and had another longish lead in game 2.

Yeah, it kinda is.

It's similar to the Pythagorean win theories in baseball. Most of the time, a team's 'true' ability over a long season will be very closely mirrored by its run differential. If you see a club sitting at .500 but they have one of the top run differential's in the league, odds are they're going to catch fire very soon.

Granted, there are outliers, but the statistics don't lie - in large numbers it's damn near a certainty.

A team that can't establish that it's capable of being dominant needs precision at all times. Over a game that's fine. Over 3 games it might be. But as the series gets longer and longer, you're less and less likely to get that precision for the requisite number of games. 7 games is starting to get a little long for that kind of winning (and you'll note that the Mavs never got stretched that far...)

Had Dallas been able to win game 3, I'd be confident that they could close it out on Thursday. But with that game 3 loss, even if they win in game 5 they'll have to steal one in Miami. To this point, I've yet to see them play a stretch of ball where they've been clearly better than Miami. And when you throw in the refs and Wade's 'home cookin' calls, Dallas's inability to dominate will very likely be critical come game 6 (and possibly 7).

First, statistics "lie" all the time, as any good politician can tell you. It's often just a matter of how you shade them. Second, a 7 game series, while certainly more likely to be telling than a 1 game playoff, isn't enough to establish anything approaching a statistical certainty.

Statics never lie - the people that use them do.

If you think its wholly irrelevant that the Heat have shown an ability to put their foot down and blow the Mavs out of the barn whereas the Mavs haven't, more power to ya.

But ultimately that has to be of some concern. When try to walk a tight rope, every additional step is one you'd prefer not take. The Mavs are doing just that with the style of games they're playing and the fact that they couldn't close it out in 5 would be very troubling for me were I a Mavs fan.
