Fans who watched the Dallas Mavericks win the NBA Finals on the big screens in Victory Plaza and inside the American Airlines Center in Downtown Dallas partied in the plaza until close to midnight.

The fans decked out in Mavericks gear and carrying posters chanted and yelled for any camera pointed in their direction, many carried newspapers with headlines that read "Champs!"

Police say no property damage or injuries were reported after fans crowded into downtown Dallas streets following the Mavericks' 105-95 win Sunday night over the Heat in Miami.

Dallas police reported 14 arrests, including six for public intoxication, four for disorderly conduct and four people taken into custody on outstanding warrants.

Police say the vast majority of people were cooperative and good spirited.

Officers say accurately gauging the crowd size was nearly impossible. They say the crowds were large and started to thin out before midnight.

Police aren't saying how many officers were on duty, citing security reasons.
