So once again the Mavericks outplay the Heat in the fourth quarter, and LeBron James (who had a triple-double, so at least he was on the premises this time) against vanishes in the fourth quarter, scoring two meaningless points as an injured Dwyane Wade tries to gut out the win.
Today's Blob multiple-choice quiz: What's wrong with the man?
A) Nothing. He had a triple-double in an NBA finals game, the Heat scored more than 100 points, and the matchups favor Dwyane Wade on the offensive end. So enough with the over-analysis.
B) He's exhausted. Remember how much energy he expended on the defensive end in the Boston and Chicago series? It's catching up to him.
C) God is from Cleveland.
D) He's lost total confidence in his outside shot, and it's gotten into his head and thrown off everything else in his game.
E) Plus, the Mavs are playing great defense on him. So Rick Carlisle's in his head, too.
Answers: B, D and E. Although it could be "C," you never know.
