Dallas Mavericks Advance To NBA Finals [PHOTOS]

The Dallas Mavericks came from behind for the second game in a row, beating the Oklahoma City Thunder 100-96, to advance to the NBA Finals for the first time since 2006. Check out a recap of the game in pictures. It only took 5 games for the Mavs to return to where they failed in 2006 – the NBA Finals.  Led by Dirk Nowitzski, the Mavs closed out the 4th quarter with a 14-4 run,  that took out anything that Thunder had left.

Dirk’s not done yet.

“We’ve got one of those trophies already,” Nowitzki said. “This is nice for a day, but we set our goals in October to win it all. We haven’t done it yet.”

Still fresh is the sour taste of losing to the Miami Heat in the 2006 NBA Finals, after having a 2-0 lead in the series.  Ironically, the Mavs await the winner of the Eastern Conference Finals which very well could be the Miami Heat. However, this 2011 team has way more talent than that 2006 team and I think that it doesn’t matter who they face, it will be a great series.

I’m pulling for the Mavs.

So, here’s a look back at the Dallas Mavericks game 5 win in pictures.  I included 41 pictures in honor of Dirk’s jersey number.
