NBA Finals, Game 6 Score: Mavericks 53, Heat 51 At Halftime

The Dallas Mavericks are up by two points at halftime of Game 6 of the NBA Finals, leading the Miami Heat 53-51. 

Dallas survived a ridiculous Miami run that saw the Heat go on a 14-0 tear before technical fouls slowed down the momentum headed into a timeout. 

The fact that Dallas has a lead at halftime isn't terribly surprising - but the fact that they have a lead with their best player shooting so poorly is. Dirk Nowitzki is 1-12 from the field and is 1-1 from the free throw line for a paltry three points. Nowitzki, though, does have five rebounds. 

Jason Terry is leading Dallas' offensive attack with 19 points at the half. Terry is 8-10 from the field including 3-5 from beyond the arc. 

LeBron James started off the game 4-4 shooting, but since has gone just 1-5. James has 11 points at the half to go along with three assists - and three turnovers. In James' 18 minutes on the floor, he is an astounding -11. 

The Heat, though, do have an advantage in the foul department. James and Wade only have one foul each, and no other Miami starter has a foul. Nowitzki and Shawn Marion each have two for Dallas while Tyson Chandler already has three. 

We'll see if the Mavericks can hold off the Heat in the second half and claim their first ever NBA title.
