NBA: Miami too hot to handle for Mavs

<p>The Miami Heat enjoyed a narrow three point victory over the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday evening to complete their fourth sweep in five seasons since losing to their Texan rivals in the 2011 <span class="caps">NBA</span> Finals.</p> <p>Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki had a challenging first half on home court, but bounced back with 20 of his 28 points after halftime to lead Dallas.</p> <p>But on the other side, Miami had Chrish Bosh and Dwayne Wade to inflict the damage.</p> <p>Bosh hit a team high 20 points while Wade recovered from the worst shooting half of his career to land 18 points.</p> <p>One year on from a career-threatening bout with blood clots on his lung, a rejuvenated Bosh is back to being Mr. Reliable for the Heat as they keep their play off hopes alive.</p> <p>Nowitzki kept the game close as the clock ticked towards full time but Raymond Felton’s missed three-pointer just before the buzzer left Miami celebrating a 93-90 victory.</p>
