The Mavericks and Heat will meet in another rematch of the 2011 NBA Finals on Thursday night, their first meeting since Christmas Day, when the Heat thumped the defending champs 105-94. But Miami's scoring has suffered as of late - the Heat have been held under 100 points in 11 of their last 13 games (one NBA.com stat: Miami was first in the league in scoring through March 1, but since then are 25th).
LeBron James will play through a left ring finger injury after dislocating it in the first quarter against Indiana on Monday. James played the rest of that game relying on his right hand to catch passes, and will play with his left fingers bandaged.
Date / Time: Thursday, March 29, 7 p.m. CT
Location: American Airlines Arena, Miami, Florida
Radio: Mavs Radio Network
Line: Miami -8.5
