Dwyane Wade, LeBron James Mock Dirk Nowitzki's Fever Before Game 5 (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Dwyane Wade and LeBron James looked like they were having fun before Game 5 on Thursday night... at Dirk Nowitzki's expense.

After Miami's pregame shootaround, the two Heat stars were shown mocking the fever Dirk Nowitzki had during Game 4 of the NBA Finals.

The Mavericks got the last laugh after they dominated the Heat in the final minutes to take a 3-2 series lead.

Nowitzki played Game 4 with a 101-degree fever and led Dallas to an 86-83 win. He scored 10 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter and made a driving right-handed layup with 14.4 seconds left to give the Mavs a three-point cushion.

Game 6 will be played in Miami on Sunday night. Scroll down to watch the video.
