Heat hold off Mavs: Do what's necessary

This is beginning to have the makings of a great series with dramatic finishes.

The Miami Heat were able to hold off the Dallas Mavericks, in Dallas, winning game 3 of their best of 7 series 88-86.

Again, Dwayne Wade was the catalyst for the Heat with 29 points, but it again was the 3rd Beatle, Chris Bosh who ended up with the game winner. Bosh had 18, but continues his struggles from the field, going 7 for 18.

Dirk Nowtizki again was the guy for Dallas with 34, but the vaunted Mavs bench has been less and less a factor as this series goes on. In fact, Dirk really isn't getting much help from anyone during this series. He's arguably kept them in it almost by himself. But Sunday night, he blinked, making a couple of bad decisions late in the game when his team had a chance to win.

Game 4 is Tuesday night in Dallas.
