The Miami Heat have the homecourt advantage and are the favorites to knockoff the Dallas Mavs in the NBA finals, as the oddsmakers from Las Vegas think the way Dwayne Wade, Lebron James and Chris Bosh are playing offensively and the way they stopped MVP Derrick Rose and the Bulls on the defensive end of the court, that they can beat the deep roster of the Mavs.  Their is no doubt that the Heat are playing great defense in the playoffs and the way Chris Bosh has stepped up sticking the face-up jumper against one on one defense, has helped Lebron James and Dwayne Wade get less double and triple teams and the homecourt advantage helps the Heat in the 1st two games of the series, but with the middle 3 games being in Dallas and the great playoff run that German forward Dirk Nowitzki is having, the Mavs might have not gotten the proper respect from many national media members and the Las Vegas oddsmakers.  Dirk Nowitzki has been playing MVP level basketball in the playoffs, hitting over 50% on FG's and 3 point looks, while also hitting over 90% on his FT's. The Heat will probably start with Chris Bosh on Dirk Nowitzki and also come in with Udonis Haslem, who helped cover him along with James Posey in the 2006 NBA finals and later in the game could go with Lebron James to try and stop Dirk. The way Dirk is shooting, I do not think anyone can shut him down, as he will get his and the big 3 from Miami will get theirs, but what might be the key to the series is the way 5' 9" J.J Barea plays in his 1st NBA finals. The small Puerto Rican national team member has been breaking down defenses in the playoffs, with his great pick and roll decision making ability, to get deep in the lane finishing at the rim or kicking it out to the great 3 point shooting of Dirk Nowitzki, Jason Terry and former Greek league player Peja Stojakovic. The Dallas Mavs have more knock down 3 point shooters than the Bulls had, so it will not be so easy to double and triple the ball handler on pick and roll plays, because leaving Terry and Stojakovic open will mean open 3 point looks, something that Kyle Korver and the rest of the Bulls struggled with, which made it tougher on Derrick Rose to get into the lane. MIke Bibby, Mario Chalmers and Dwayne Wade at times will have the assignment of trying to slow J.J Barea down from getting into the lane, but if he gets into the heart of the defense, as he has shown against the Lakers and the Thunder, he has shown the ability to hit the floater over the larger players, find Tyson Chandler for easy dunks as the defenses collapse on Barea or kick to waiting good 3 point shooters that could make this series very interesting.
