NBA Finals - Game 1

James scores 24, Nowitzki injured, Heat take Game 1

The Western Conference champion Mavericks were held to their lowest point total of the playoffs as the Heat dominated the 4th quarter behind James' 24 points to win Game 1 - 92-84.

Dirk Nowitzki scored 27 points and grabbed eight rebounds for Dallas, while Shawn Marion scored 16 points and 10 rebounds, as Jason Terry scored 12 points, most of those coming early in the game. It was Dallas' fifth straight loss to Miami in finals games, dating to the Heat rally for the 2006 crown.

It was revealed after the game, that Nowitzki tore a tendon in the middle finger on his left, non-shooting, hand during the game and likely will wear a splint throughout the remainder of the series.

Dallas held the Heat to 39 percent shooting, Miami's second-worst showing of the playoffs. Unfortunately the Mavericks shot 37 percent, their worst night of the postseason offensively.

In a scene reminiscent of the 2006 NBA finals, the first time Wade went to the foul line Tuesday night, Mavs owner Mark Cuban stood to argue that he traveled.

Game 2 is Thursday in Miami.
