NBA Finals 2011: 10 Things We Learned from Miami Heat-Dallas Mavericks Game 5

This series has been exactly what an NBA Finals should be like. Two teams with opposing styles slugging it out over the course of 48 minutes. Along the way delivering at least three instant classics.

It was a Texas flood that engulfed the Miami Heat on Thursday night. One long range splash after another.

Once Miami seemed to finally hang on long enough and make their move another wave of Dallas rain came there way.

As it stands the Dallas Mavericks are on the verge of their first ever NBA title. One game is all that stands between Dirk Nowitzki and company from reaching the pantheon of basketball legends.

In their way will be a desperate Miami team with their backs to the wall. Should LeBron James win his first title he will have to do so in the most dramatic way possible.

Before we move the series back to South Florida and Game  6, let us take a look at ten things we learned during tonight's contest.
