NBA Finals Score: Mavericks 81, Heat 72 After Third Quarter

The Dallas Mavericks are up by nine points at the end of the third quarter in Game 6 of the NBA Finals. Dallas leads Miami 81-72 and are now just a quarter away from their first ever NBA title.

The Mavericks outscored the Heat by seven points in the third quarter, 28-21. 

Dallas has done an excellent job limiting the effectiveness of LeBron James, as James is an almost unbelievable -20 in this time on the floor. 

Dallas also hung in there while head coach Rick Carlisle opted to keep Nowitzki on the bench as the quarter waned down. Hopefully the rest does Nowitzki well as he gears up for what could be the most important quarter of his career as the Mavericks look to close out the Heat and claim their first-ever NBA championship.

Jason Terry continues to lead the Mavericks in scoring with 21 points as the game heads into the fourth and final quarter of play.
