(Dallas' Dirk Nowitzki's final score wins game 2 of the NBA Finals)

Dirk Nowitzki shook off an injury to his non-shooting hand and made a tie-breaking layup with 3.6 seconds left and the Mavericks came all the way back from 15 points down in the fourth quarter to beat the Heat 95-93 and tie the NBA finals at one game apiece.
