What a comeback! 

If you're a Miami Heat fan, all you're thinking is what a choke. The Heat were in prime position to take a 2-0 lead, but gave it away in the tail end of the fourth quarter. 

I wrote yesterday that either Dirk Nowitzki or LeBron James would close this game out. I picked LeBron because of the motivation to save home court advantage, but Nowitzki proved why he is one of the league's best. 

Did someone say something about an injury? Well, it sure didn't look like Nowitzki was injured at all. He used his left hand twice in the final minute. Nowitzki was playing with a splint on his middle finger, but when the game mattered most he didn't let it affect him. 

The series is tied 1-1 now and heads back to Dallas for Games 3, 4 and 5. Everybody was writing them off in the 2011 NBA Finals, but now we have ourselves a series. 

Will the Heat forget Game 2 and bounce back strong? Or will the Mavericks rule on their home court to win the championship? 

Stay tuned as I update you throughout the day all about the 2011 NBA Finals.
