The Heat had finally taken control of Game 5 but after Jason Terry tied the game with a 3, Dirk Nowitzki caught the ball baseline and pulled out one of his very Dirk-ish moves.

A subtle head fake and he went hard along the baseline for a big two-handed dunk to put Dallas up two. And to cap off the sequence, Tyson Chandler stepped in to take an important charge on LeBron James, wiping away what would've been a tying layup.

This was the first time Dallas had regained the lead after holding one for almost the entire game. The Heat had battled back to take a five-point lead after a 9-0 by Miami. But the Terry 3, then the Dirk dunk put the Mavs back on top for good and they finished it off 112-103 to take the all-pivotal Game 5 and a 3-2 series lead.

Nowitski has been just incredible this entire series.  He has raised his game and now has to be considered among the elites in the NBA.

That's one less than Lebron always takes.

Great gaem dallas, but Nowitzki walked. He took 3 steps. 1/2 a step to much. Look at it again. It is very clear.
