Mavericks Advance To NBA Finals

The Dallas Mavericks beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 100-96 in Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals.  Dirk Nowitzki is in some very elite company.

Dirk Nowitzki is averaging the most points in the 4th quarter during the 2011 NBA Playoffs.  Nowitzki averaged 11.4 points in the 4th quarter against Oklahoma City.  Dirk only trails Amar’e Stoudemire, who averaged 13.6 points in 2005, for the most points-per-game in the 4th quarter of the conference finals.

Nowitzki hit a clutch 3-pointer with 1:14 left to give the Mavericks a 95-94 win.  Dirk and Dallas return to the NBA Finals for the first time since 2006.  They lost in six games to Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat back in ’06.  With Miami leading the Bulls 3-1 in the Eastern Conference Finals, it’s very likely that we’ll be seeing an ’06 rematch between Dallas and Miami.
