Winderman: Heat-Mavs was supposedly an NBA Finals rematch, but it was anything but as LeBron and Wade showed.
BEST OF MAXIM
If that headline makes no sense to you, we completely understand. That’s because it is being used to describe a play that I can’t ever really remember seeing. The Miami Heat began their 2011-2012 campaign in a big way on Christmas Day by smoking the defending champion Mavericks in an NBA Finals rematch. Since it was Christmas, even LeBron James found himself in a giving mood...
The second game of the lockout season is against the defending eastern conference champions the Miami Heat. Paul Pierce will miss his second straight game due to a bruised bone in his heel. Sasha Pavlovic will start along side of Rondo, Allen, Garnett and Jermaine. I expect Doc to use all 13 dressed players today as both these teams play a physical defensive style causing...
DALLAS (AP) While Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks were on the court celebrating the championship they won over LeBron
James and Dwyane Wade last season, the Miami Heat were gathered in another part of the building.
Kevin Garnett. Dwyane Wade. Derrick Rose. Chicago has always been a basketball breeding ground, producing elite local talent. And in Ball So Hard, the first documentary from Life+Times, they follow three of the city’s youngsters – Chicago Orr’s Tyquone Greer and Whitney Young’s Jahlil Okafor and Paul White – with the potential to carry on [...]

LeBron, the most explosive player of this generation, created a fast break off of a make, which...
Mario Chalmers passes to an airborn LeBron James who in turn passes to an airborn Dwyane Wade for an alley-oop slam. How do you begin to stop that kinda offense?
LeBron James scored 37 points and Dwyane Wade had 26 as the Heat put on a devastating show of dunks and defense, routing the defending champion Mavericks.
As if the Miami Heat weren't motivated enough to win it all, their season begins by having to watch the title banner get raised by the team that beat them to claim it.
The lockout is over and Christmas is here, so it's time for LeBron James and Dwyane Wade to kick off the Heat's quest to dethrone the Dallas Mavericks as NBA champions with an NBA finals rematch.
This game was nowhere near as close as the final score was. The Heat were winning 97-65 after three quarters before calling off the dogs. The Heat outrebounded the Mavericks 51-31 and they turned up the D holding the Mavericks to only 37.8% shooting from the floor. LeBron James had a monster game to lead the way for the Heat with 37 points, 10 rebounds, 6 assists, 2 steals...
