Mavs beat Heat, edge closer to title

Dirk Nowitzki submitted another masterful performance, and as a result the Mavericks are within one game of becoming NBA champions. Nowitzki had 29 points, including a dunk that put the Mavs ahead for good with 2:45 left, to give Dallas a 112-103 win over the Heat on Thursday night and a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series. The Mavericks can clinch their first championship in Game 6 Sunday night in Miami. Dwyane Wade, who battled a hip injury he suffered in the first quarter, ended up with 23 points, while LeBron James had 17 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists in a losing effort.

Vigneault: 'My guy' Luongo is starting Gm. 5
By: DJ Bean

Canucks coach Alain Vigneault said Thursday at Rogers Arena that he will not be making a goaltending change prior to Friday's Game 5 of the Stanley Cup finals. Vezina finalist Roberto Luongo has allowed 12 goals over his last two games (both lopsided Bruins wins), but Vigneault said he will not be turning to Cory Schneider, as he did in the first round after Luongo struggled in Games 4 and 5.

"My gut at that time told me that putting Schneids in was the right thing to do, but it was just a one-[time] thing," Vigneault said. "Roberto is the guy. He's my guy, and he's playing. It's that simple." 

Schneider replaced Luongo after the Bruins' scored their fourth goal in Wednesday's Game 4 at TD Garden. The Marblehead native and former BC netminder stopped all nine shots he saw.

Pedroia has bone bruise on right knee cap

NEW YORK -- The Red Sox announced that after being examined by team medical director Dr. Thomas Gill, Dustin Pedroia has been diagnosed with having a bone bruise on his right knee cap. The second baseman will rejoin the team in Toronto Friday.

Pedroia, who had been complaining about the knee recently after initially hurting when falling to the ground May 16 in the Red Sox' game with the Orioles at Fenway Park, was sent to Boston for further examination Thursday. The trip was meant to ensure that the infielder could continue playing without further damaging any of the cartilage that had given him problems last season..

"That knee has actually been kind of sore, it was sore last year. When he broke his foot it kind of became a non-issue and got better because he rested it so much. It...

Bergeron: 'We haven't done anything yet'
By: DJ Bean

VANCOUVER -- The Bruins have returned to Vancouver having tied the Stanley Cup finals after dropping the series' first two games and winning two at home. Though the 2-0 hole may have seemed insurmountable, the Bruins were able to overcome it for the second time this offseason. With the team still two wins away from their first Stanley Cup championship since 1972, center Patrice Bergeron said now is not the time for the B's to feel accomplished.

"We've done it against Montreal, when were down 2-0 [in the Eastern Conference quarterfinals], so we knew we could do it, but with that being said, we haven't done anything yet," Bergeron said Thursday at Rogers Arena. "Yes, we came back, but we need to make sure we're not stopping there."

The Bruins and Canucks will play Game 5 Friday night at Rogers Arena.
