The Dallas Mavericks beat the Miami Heat 99-85 to take a 2-0 series lead on the road to Miami. The frustration on Shaq has set in after he got fined $10,000 for not making himself available for interviews and the Heat fined $25,000 along with that. The Heat also have an injury tot Udonis Haslem who bruised his left shoulder at the end of the second half and didn't return. The defense was amazing on Shaq and the Mavs deserve some credit. Dirk Nowitzki got 26 points and 16 boards in 41 minutes. Dirk was great he pounded the ball inside and dominated. Jason Terry got 16 points and 9 assists in 41 minutes. The Jet played great and expect more greatness from him this series. Jerry Stackhouse got 19 points and 3 boards in 30 minutes off the bench. Josh Howard got 15 points and 3 boards in 29 minutes. Howard was great with that 4 point play amazing that it happened two times in this game. Dwyane Wade got 23 points and 8 boards in 40 minutes. Wade shot a terrible percentage because the Mavs defense was all over him.
