NBA Finals 2011: Will Dirk Nowitzki, Dallas Mavericks Get Revenge?

The Dallas Mavericks and Miami Heat are set to face off in the 2011 NBA Finals beginning on Tuesday night in a series filled with bold headlines. 

One such headline is that this is a rematch of the 2006 NBA Finals, during which the Heat won an impressive four straight over the Mavs en route to a 4-2 series victory, thus earning the team the honored title of World Champion.

Five years later, these two teams have completely new makeovers, yet will be fiercely competing for the same trophy.

Will Dirk Nowitzki avenge the Heat and finally add "NBA Champion" to his decorated résumé? Possibly, but it certainly won't be easy.  

Here's my take on what the Mavericks must do in order to win this year's NBA Finals.

Note: This article was written from a pre-series perspective and so does not include any analysis from Game 1, which the Miami Heat won 92-84 to give them a 1-0 lead.
