Dirk knows how many more...

After one of the biggest collapses in NBA history last night, to the delight of millions billions of people across Cleveland the world, the Heat now find themselves tied 1-1 instead of up two games to none.

What a game.  The anxiety I felt during that game rivaled some of the Cavs deep playoff runs.  Amazing comeback, perhaps spurred by Dallas' anger over the Heat over- or early-celebrating.  But then again, they had a party last July, and nobody has been angry enough to stop them yet.  And it should be mentioned that the Mavericks aren't the least-demonstrative team out there, especially Jason Terry, who was the one particularly sore at Wade for his posturing in front of their bench.  Nevertheless, it was sweet.

All we can hope now is that Dirk Nowitzki and the Mavericks can stay in Dallas and enjoy the beautiful Texas summer, rather than have to return to the disgusting weather back in Miami.
