DALLAS - The Miami Heat recovered from their Game Two meltdown in the NBA Finals by edging the Dallas Mavericks 88-86 on Sunday to take a 2-1 lead and regain the home-court advantage in the best-of-seven series.
Chris Bosh provided the winning margin for Miami on a 16-foot jump shot with 39.6 seconds left. Dallas forward Dirk Nowitzki's potentially game-tying 18-footer at the buzzer bounded off the rim.
Dwyane Wade paced the Heat with 29 points, 11 rebounds and three assists. Nowitzki had 34 points and 11 rebounds in a losing effort.
