NBA Finals, Game 6 Score: Mavericks Lead Heat 32-27 After First Quarter

One quarter is in the books in Game 6 of the NBA Finals, and so far so good for the Dallas Mavericks. The Mavericks lead the Miami Heat 32-27 after the first quarter.

Dallas is once again shooting well. As a team, the Mavericks are shooting 61.9% (13-21), including 3-6 from three point range. 

Jason Terry has provided a spark off the bench so far as well. Terry has nine points and a steal in just five minutes of play.

There is some bad news for the Mavericks, though. Dirk Nowitzki and Tyson Chandler both have picked up two fouls. Nowitzki came out after the second foul on him - matching his points total thus far. Nowitzki has two rebounds as well.

LeBron James started out 4-4 shooting, but has since missed his last three shots. James leads all Heat players with nine points and three assists after a quarter of play.

Dwyane Wade only has four points thus far as well, going 2-5 shooting.

The 32 points in the first quarter mark the highest point total in a quarter for either team this series.
