Dirk starts 4 of 21, but rallies as Mavs win

Posted by Royce Young

MIAMI -- Not exactly the way everyone pictured Dirk Nowitzki's Game 6 going. The player that's been almost perfect this postseason missed 17 of the first 21 shots he attempted.

But he came up with 10 fourth-quarter points to put the Mavericks over the top.

Despite his horrid start, the Mavs remained in total control of the game until Nowitzki warmed up in the fourth quarter.

Remarkable, really. Just imagine how far ahead Dallas would have been had three or four of those shots that rattled in and out on Dirk would've dropped.

Heat vs. Mavericks Game 6 fight video

Video of a fight between the Miami Heat and Dallas Mavericks during the second quarter of Game 6 of the 2011 NBA Finals.

The Miami Heat and Dallas Mavericks got a bit feisty during Game 6 of the 2011 NBA Finals.

Following a three-pointer by Heat guard Eddie House, a skirmish broke out between the two benches as the game cut to a timeout. 

Miami Heat forward Udonis Haslem, Miami Heat guard Mario Chalmers and Dallas Mavericks guard DeShawn Stevenson were all whistled for technical fouls in the skirmish, which began when Stevenson pushed Haslem.

Haslem took exception to the push and Chalmers came charging in late. Stevenson pushed back at Chalmers and both benches emptied in defense of their teammates. Mavericks center Tyson Chandler was also involved, but escaped penalty.

The exchange could potentially lead to suspensions if there is a Game 7, however given that it was a timeout situation the players were allowed to come off the bench, so that part would be a non-issue.

Here's video of the skirmish between the Heat and the Mavericks.

Heat PG Mario Chalmers to start for Mike Bibby

The Miami Heat have inserted point guard Mario Chalmers into their starting lineup for Game 6 instead of Mike Bibby. Posted by Ben Golliver.

In our NBA Finals Game 6 preview, we wondered whether Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra would make any adjustments with the desperation factor ratcheted up in an elimination game against the Dallas Mavericks.

Spoelstra has indeed made a change: The Heat will start point guard Mario Chalmers instead of the usual starter, Mike Bibby, in Game 6 on Sunday night.

Chalmers has played well for the Heat throughout the Finals, averaging 10/6 points, 2.8 assists and 2.6 rebounds in 26.8 minutes per game. He's also shooting 42.9 percent from deep. He has emerged as a steady presence for Miami, spacing the floor well, making good decisions and doing his best to stay with Dallas' guards. 

Bibby, meanwhile, has struggled. He's a defensively liability because of his age and is shooting just 29.4 percent from deep, averaging 3.8 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.0 assist in 17.2 minutes per game against the Mavericks.

The move comes shortly after Spoelstra told reporters in his pre-game media availibility that he did not want to over-react by changing his starting lineup. A little bit of gamesmanship.

This is Chalmers' first start since March 19. He started 28 games during the regular season.
