The Mavericks probably had the Heat right where they wanted them anyway. They were leading 105-101 with 45 seconds remaining and possession of the ball.

But with No. 3, No. 6 and No. 1 all on the other side in black, the Mavs needed another bucket to really feel good about their chances. And Jason Terry was there to provide it.

The fact it was right over LeBron had to make it a little bit sweeter, but the triple put the Mavs up seven with 35 seconds left. And pretty much, basically made sure the Mavs were taking a 3-2 lead back to South Beach.

Dirk called Terry out for not being the kind of fourth quarter clutch player that he's been in the past. He wasn't hitting big shots, wasn't doing his jet routine, wasn't closing out games the way he's supposed to and the way the Mavs needed him to.

He kind of sort of made up for that Thursday. He hit the 3 that tied the game at 100-100 and this 3 that put the Heat on ice. Happy now, Dirk?

   A dagger is absolutely correct. Terry made a very gutsy play in taking his 3 with the time remaining and with each possession so valuable.
