Dallas' starless band of ringless vets that Nowitzki carried so much further than expected -- this motley crew that even Mavs president of basketball operations Donnie Nelson likes to refer to as "The Castoffs" -- wound up carrying its very own Hakeem Olajuwon for three quarters.
Jason Kidd at Tyson Chandler as the injury-prone-no-more defensive anchor. Shawn Marion reborn as a perimeter stopper with a bit of a post-up game.
DeShawn Stevenson and Brian Cardinal emerging from oblivion to make big shots and dole out hard fouls off the bench.
Jason Terry , Dallas' only other survivor besides Nowitzki, supplying 27 clutch points as the sixth man, playing like one of the legends from back home in Seattle: Truth be told, Ian Mahinmi's jumper somehow looked truer than Dirk's for much of this bizarre Game 6.
Order was not restored until the fourth quarter, when Nowitzki finally recovered from his 1-for shooting nightmare in the first half to drop 10 of his 21 points, responding to Terry's cries of "Remember '06" with five game-sealing buckets in the final 7: It was a clinching salvo that left even Nowitzki's famously stoic shot doctor with watery eyes when the ABC cameras found Holger Geschwindner in the stands.
In the first half, I had so many good looks. I can't even explain it. I had some 3s top of the key. I had a wide-open 3 in the corner.
I had some pull-ups. I had some one-legged fadeaways that I normally make. Then speaking specifically about the unheralded Mavs who bailed him out, Nowitzki said: This is a win for playing as a team on both ends of the floor, sharing the ball, passing the ball.
We never looked at ourselves as soft. Not for one minute. Dirk and his fellow former softies, truth be told, had more swagger than anyone knew.
Keeping with a secret tradition that began in earnest before Game 4 of Dallas' second-round sweep of the Los Angeles Lakers , every Mavs player conspired to wear something black to work on Sunday, convinced that they would soon do to Wade's Heat precisely what Miami had done to Dallas in a Game 6 on the road five years before.

Nowitzki was named the Euroscar European Basketball Player of the Year by the Italian sports newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport for five years running from to and again in Nowitzki is a versatile frontcourt player who mostly plays the power forward position, but has also played center and small forward throughout his career.
Throughout Nowitzki's career, he has responded to the increased pressure of the playoffs by increasing his productivity.
As of the end of the —14 season, he had averaged In the playoffs, he has averaged In the most pressure packed games, such as playoff elimination games he averages He has had 14 elimination games where he scored 30 or more points, which ties him with Jerry West for most all time.
Of the top elimination game performances in the last 20 years, Nowitzki has had the best performances in 8 of them, more than any other player in the NBA in that same time frame.
His shooting accuracy combined with his long seven-foot frame and unique shooting mechanics, such as having a release point above his head, makes contesting his jump shots very difficult.
When defenses guard Nowitzki with one of their biggest men, who is then pulled out to the perimeter, the net effect is that while Nowitzki's own statistics are actually compromised by being out of position to offensively rebound or make an easy close-range basket, the rest of the team becomes more offensively potent with the defense having to be spread across the floor.
Often, this creates mismatches that his teammates can exploit. The Mavericks system and international play exposed him to an open passing game, making him dangerous as a point forward and post playmaker as well.
Nowitzki averages just over one block per game and never made an All-Defense Team. Despite rarely blocking shots, he is ranked 8th in active players for defensive win shares as of July Nowitzki is the sixth player in NBA history, and the first European, to hit the 30,point milestone.
