Here’s what I tweeted after Dwyane Wade nailed a corner three right in front of the Maverick’s bench last night to extend the lead to 15 points with only half a quarter to play: “And it seems like they're [Mavericks] falling apart mentally...how can all these dunks and dagger shots not do that? SERIES OVER”.
Maybe it was all the dunks in traffic LeBron and Wade were throwing down or the impossible shots Miami’s stars were making look easy. Maybe it was Mike Bibby—the Mike Bibby shooting 25 percent in the playoffs—raining threes or the fact that Brian Cardinal of Dallas checked into a must win game in the Finals even though he had played all of seven minutes in the postseason combined. Whatever it was, Dallas looked done. Finished. Caput.
