Miami Heat 0-0 vs. Dallas Mavericks 0-0 Opening Thread
In what could very well end up being a rematch in the Finals this season ”The Big 3″ invades American Airlines Arena to witness the Dallas Mavericks celebrate last season’s improbable championship run with a pregame ring celebration, which is going to produce quite bit of energy in the building.
The Miami Heat enters this game with few questions as the core is still intact and should be drastically improved with the return of Udonis Haslem and addition of Shane Battier. However, it be interesting to see if this season Erik Spoelstra will allow Chris Bosh, LeBron James, and Dwyane Wade to have so much freedom on offense or will he call more plays? Also, how will the team choose to guard Dirk? Who has the cooler Christmas Day shoes between LeBron James and Dwyane Wade?
The biggest questions for the Mavs are how effectively will Rick Carlisle incorporate Vince Carter and Lamar Odom into the lineup? Also, who is going to replace the mentality and production of JJ Barea?
With the capability of Jason Kidd, Dirk Nowitzki, and Jason Terry to go on a hot streak from the field, it certainly will make this game very entertaining to watch. Game on!
