Mavericks Vs. Heat Score: Miami Pouring It On, Lead 97-65 After Three

Everything is going right for the Miami Heat and frustration is starting to mount for the Dallas Mavericks. After taking a 62-41 lead into the half, Miami outscored Dallas 35-24 in the third quarter to take a 97-65 lead into the fourth quarter.

The Heat are sizzling at both ends of the floor shooting over 57 percent as a team and have capitalized on every opportunity that they have created. LeBron James is having a big game with 33 points, eight rebounds and six assists through three quarters of play while running mate Dwyane Wade has 22 points, seven rebounds and six assists.

It has been all down hill for the Mavericks since they raised their championship banner prior to the game. Dirk Nowitzki has 21 points through three quarters but is just 6-15 from the floor. Jason Terry has 14 while Shawn Marion has 12 respectively. Lamar Odom was ejected in his Dallas debut mid-way through the third for arguing a charge call.
