Heat 92, Mavericks 84, NBA Finals Game 1: Do We Really Have to?

-I hate to be a fatalist even though it’s just game one, but really? 73% of NBA Finals game 1 winners have gone on to take the series. And the Dallas Mavericks uncanny run of dominance over the Miami Heat only seems to apply in regular-season games.

-Dallas led after the first quarter, despite shooting just 29%. They led all the way into the 3rd quarter before collapsing. And it was yet another reminder that the Heat have not lost at home this postseason. Seriously, do we really have to watch the Heat take this title? Is it inevitable?
