I hate the term “Do or die.”
One, it’s cliche. Two, you’re not going to die by losing a game, but you’re not going to feel that good, either.
The Miami Heat are facing that reality.
Down 3-2 to the Dallas Mavericks, the Heat need to win Sunday’s Game 6 at home to force a deciding Game 7 on Tuesday in Miami.
Truth is, the series should be over.
Miami blew a huge lead in Game 2 at home and should have won Game 4 as well but give Dallas credit. The Mavericks are locked in defensively and Dirk Nowitzki is not only playing, but he’s being a leader.
LeBron James should take some notes from him on how to find a way in the fourth quarter.
