When Dallas played Miami in the 2006 Finals, Dwayne Wade lead a fourth quarter surge in Game 3 to lead the Heat to an improbable victory and cut the series deficit to 2-1.
Three games later, Wade and the Heat were hoisting the Larry O’Brien Trophy as NBA Champs.
Dallas’ Game 2 comeback resembles the Heat in ’06, and that kind of momentum can work wonders.
The Mavericks role into Game 3 with a lot of confidence, and the Heat still don’t take them seriously.
In his postgame news conference, Dwayne Wade dismissed his taunting of the Mavericks’ bench as a fabrication of the media and that he did no such thing.
However, after Wade held his follow through to put the Heat up by 15, the Mavericks started their comeback to ultimately win the game.
The Heat arrogance, combined with the Maverick confidence, only shifts momentum even more to Dallas’ side.
The Mavericks will continue their hot play from Game 2 to win Game 3 at home on Sunday.
