DALLAS -- It’s not really a rivalry anymore, this matchup between the Heat and the Mavericks. There is history aplenty between the two teams. The Finals in 2006 and 2011, the Heat hitting rock bottom in Dallas in the 2010-2011 regular season, the forever battle for Udonis Haslem, Dwyane Wade and LeBron James making fun of Dirk Nowitzki’s cold, the gloating Mark Cuban. All that jazz.
