Heat Defense Did Really Well Against Dirk


Despite coming away with a deserving NBA Final MVP trophy, Dirk Nowitzki was seriously rattled by Miami’s defense.  Prior to the Finals, Dirk was on pace for the most impressive shooting performance in Playoff history.  The Heat defense did a number on him.  Over just six of the 21 total games played by Dirk, his shooting percentage from the field dropped from 51.6 to 48.5.  His three point shooting percentage dropped from 51.7 to 46.0.  A solid job by the Miami defense.  Of course, Dwayne Wade and LeBron James would not mind if THEY had shot those percentage during the Finals, or come close to Dirk’s 94% free throw shooting.
