The Miami Heat beat the Dallas Mavericks 95-92 to win the NBA finals! The celebration has started in Miami and the parade is on Friday. Zo got his ring. He may be gone now. If he is, good luck to him! Gary Payton also got his ring. Nothing has been said about when he will retire. The Heat won because of the energy and aggressive play of Dwade, finals MVP. Wade also made clutch free throws in the last two games. Dallas came out looking good but it was a game of runs and Miami topped them. Dwyane Wade got 36 points and 10 boards in 45 minutes. What a milestone for Wade! He had a great post season and will have many more to come. Wade also gave the effort and sprung up high on his feet to secure rebounds. Udonis Haslem got 17 points and 10 boards in 41 minutes. Haslem was great. His points were a big bonus and his defense was tough. Alonzo Mourning got 8 points and 5 blocks in 14 minutes off the bench. Zo changed the 3rd with his blocks. If the Mavs had made a few more shots (that Zo blocked), they might have won the game. Zo had great enthusiasm that he spread throughout the team. Antoine Walker got 14 points and 11 boards in 34 minutes. Walker delivered the knockout punches to the Mavs.
