DALLAS (AP) - Dwyane Wade knows in the NBA finals, collapses can carry over.
He was in the Dirk Nowitzki role five years ago, summoning a desperate charge to rescue a team that was down but refused to go out. A furious fourth-quarter rally saved the Heat from a 3-0
deficit and they never looked back, winning four straight to beat Dallas.
The finals hadn't seen anything like that again until Thursday night, and this time Wade was on the wrong end of it. The Heat were almost halfway to another championship celebration when the game suddenly swung in the Mavericks' favor.
Will the series, too?
