Rick Carlisle pointed out that the Heat had won its last two games without Wade. (He didn't bother noting that one of those games was against the 5-50 New Jersey Nets.)
"They're playing really well without him, too," Carlisle said. "They're doing it by playing a low-possession game that's predicated by hard defense."
In the other words, the Mavs need to continue their recent trend of running.
The Mavs should know better to let up against a team with an injured star anyway. They've lost a handful of those kinds of games this season, including a setback in San Antonio with Tim Duncan and Tony Parker wearing street clothes.
