NBA Finals 2011 Live Blog: Miami Heat vs. Dallas Mavericks Game 6 Coverage

Andy Bailey@@AndrewDBaileyFeatured ColumnistJune 12, 2011

Tonight is Game 6 of the 2011 NBA Finals. The Dallas Mavericks are one win away from the first title in franchise history. The Miami Heat can stave off elimination and force a Game 7.

Will Miami (specifically LeBron James) be able to quiet the critics? Or will Dirk Nowitzki finally complete a humble quest he's been on for over a decade?

LeBron's difficulties and Dirk's success in the fourth quarters of this series have been well documented. Dirk is outscoring LeBron 52-11 overall and 26-0 in crunch time (last five minutes of the game when the teams are within five points).

Dwyane Wade has had a fantastic series, but he's been completely overshadowed by his ridiculously over-covered counterpart.

In fact, the media has made this entire series about one man and one man only. Will his first title hunt as a member of the Heat end tonight? Or will we see one more game?

More important than any of that, will anyone be coughing tonight?

These questions, and many more will all be answered over the course of the next few hours.
