Mavericks Win NBA Championship

      MIAMI (AP) - Dirk Nowitzki got the Dallas Mavericks to the brink
of an NBA championship. His teammates did the rest, a perfect
ending for a club that talked all season about its greatest
strength being the sum of its parts.

Nowitzki missed 11 of his first 12 shots and matched his series
low with 21 points, yet with Jason Terry scoring 27 and every
starter and reserve making some sort of significant contribution,
the Mavericks beat the Miami Heat 105-95 Sunday night to wrap up
the first title in franchise history.

The difference-makers were everywhere: from Ian Mahinmi and his
stepback jumper and third quarter buzzer-beater to DeShawn
Stevenson and his three 3-pointers in the first half; from Brian
Cardinal making a 3 and drawing a charge to J. J. Barea improving to
3-0 as a starter.
