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.
