Dallas Mavericks will try to get the upper-hand in their best-of-seven series of the 2011 NBA Finals as they play against the Miami Heat on Sunday night, June 5, 2011, at the American Airlines Center, Dallas, Texas, according to a report at NBA.com.

Center stage will be on Miami forward Chris Bosh, as he will be playing his first NBA Finals game against his home town Dallas since turning pro in 2003.

Bosh was a Dallas superstar during his high school days. He led his team to a perfect, 40-0, record and a state title.

After two games, the Heat and Mavericks are locked up at one game apiece. However, Dallas‘s game two victory has shifted the homecourt advantage away from Miami. This means that the Heat needs to get a victory on the road to win the 2011 NBA Finals. This scenario puts the burden on Bosh, as he tries to lead his Miami team to at least a victory over his hometown team.

During the first two NBA Finals games, Bosh averages 15.5 points on a very low 9-of-34 field goal.

In December 15, 2003, Bosh played his first NBA game against Dallas when he was with the Toronto Raptors. Reports say that Bosh was so nervous during that game that he missed a dunk in the early part of the game.

When asked about his homecoming finals game, Bosh said that the “thrill of playing at home is gone. I just concentrate on trying to win games. I’ve been there a bunch of times, played in that arena my fair share of times. I go back all the time. Nothing’s changed, it looks the same, the people are the same. That’s why the thrill is kind of gone. As you get older, it becomes more of a task.”
