Game 1 saw LeBron James assert himself as the best on the court. It didn't take the King long to establish himself once again as the alpha dog.
With time winding down in the first quarter, Mike Bibby stepped into a three-pointer. The only good thing about that is that you know there will be a rebound.
LeBron James waited patiently as the ball indeed rimmed off. Meanwhile the entire Mavericks squad boxed-out about as well as an actual cardboard box.
James went up for a dunk like it was Saturday night during All-Star weekend. The crowd erupts, and the Mavericks deflate.
If you listen very carefully, you can hear the ever so slight whimper coming from a one Mark Cuban. This is yet another example of the Heat getting some highlight plays while the Mavericks struggle just to get an open look at the basket.
Nothing is coming easy for Dallas in this series. For the Heat, the ball is falling their way time and again. This includes the ball flying perfectly to James who stuffs it home with a resounding finish.
