The 2011 NBA Finals is already shaping up to be a classic series, thanks in no small part to games like Tuesday night's hard-fought Game 4, which saw Dirk Nowitzki and the Mavs eke out an 86-83 home win against the Heat to even things up at 2-2.
The game was full of highlights, but arguably the most impressive play of the game came on the defensive end, when 6-4 Dwyane Wade went way, way up to reject a dunk attempt by a streaking Tyson Chandler, who happens to be 7-1.
After the game, Chandler talked about Wade's block and the Heat defense in general. The Mavs big man quoted in the Dallas Morning News:
"They're so athletic, it's amazing. Their shot blockers come from the guard and the wing position, from D Wade and LeBron. So as I'm going to the basket, normally you're looking for the big guy coming. You're looking for a guard, because he does a great job of kind of coming in the lane, finding you late. He's one of the more athletic guys in the league."
