NBA Playoffs: Dallas Mavericks Will Face The Miami Heat In The NBA Finals

The Miami Heat defeated the Chicago Bulls Thursday night 83-80 to win the Eastern Conference.

This sets up a rematch of the 2006 finals and is a dream/nightmare scenario for Mavericks fans.

On one hand, nothing will be sweeter than seeing the Mavericks exercise their demons against the team that started their tailspin in 2006. On the other, well, I don't have to tell you how big of a gut punch it will be if they fall short to the Heat again.
