The 2011 NBA Finals was the championship series of the 2010–11 period of the National Basketball Association (NBA) in which the Western Conference champion Dallas Mavericks defeated the Eastern Conference champion Miami Heat four games to two to win their first NBA championship. The show had been held from May 31. German participant Dirk Nowitzki has been named the Finals MVP, becoming the second European to win the award following Tony Parker (2007) and also the first German participant to do so. The series was a rematch of the 2006 NBA Finals, which the Heat had won in six games.
Going into the series, the Heat were heavy favorites using their newly acquired superstars LeBron James and Chris Bosh together with returning superstar Dwyane Wade.
