Mavs Vs. Heat, Game 2: LJ Rotter Previews Game 2 From Miami

Mavs Moneyball’s Lisa Rotter is in Miami with the teams and looks ahead to Game 2 Thursday night. She says that we can expect better shooting from both sides and that it’s time for the Dallas bench to pick up their play.

Rotter spoke with Dirk Nowitzki about his injured finger and about his team’s mindset after losing Game 1.

Monday, before practice, Dirk told the media what he had been saying to the team all season long: you can’t get too high on the highs, or too low on the lows. When I asked him if that still rang true after Tuesday’s loss, he said, “The mood is not great after a loss, but that’s natural. We’re a veteran team that’s seen a lot in this league, and that was a tough loss. It was right there, I mean as poorly as we played on both ends of the floor, we were only down four with a couple of minutes left. There were some positives to take out of this game and we’ve just got to be a little sharper tomorrow… we’ve got to come back and be better, so hopefully our guys take the challenge.”
