Mavericks Must Win Game 3 to Stay Alive in NBA Finals Against Celtics

On RDS and RDS.ca, follow Game 3 of the NBA Finals between the Celtics and the Mavericks starting at 8 p.m. on Wednesday.

They may evaluate the situation from all angles, but the reality remains the same for the Dallas Mavericks: in order to be competitive in the NBA final series, they will have no choice but to win Game 3, Wednesday evening.

Trailing 2-0 against the powerful Boston Celtics, the Mavs absolutely cannot afford to fall 0-3.

In NBA playoff history, no team has won four games in a row after losing the first three (0-156, including 0-14 in the final series).

Of the lot, only four teams heated up their opponents by causing a seventh duel to take place.

In short, this third match is imperative for Dallas’ chances of lifting the Larry O’Brien trophy next week.

Since the start of the playoffs, the Mavs have not been dramatically better at home than on the road. But the excitement of the grand final is second to none, and offensively, this could make the difference, especially for Kyrie Irving, whose setbacks during Games Nos. 1 and 2 have been well documented.

“We can’t score. “It’s our most glaring problem right now,” admitted star player Luka Doncic. However, we have great opportunities. Like I said, we have confidence that everyone in this club can make multiple baskets. You just have to continue to believe in it. »

Boston’s strength was its brilliance in front of its fans during the regular season. But since the start of the series, the Celtics have also been impeccable on opposing courts, with an immaculate record of 6-0.

While Doncic is expected to play despite an ankle problem and the painkilling injections he received in recent days, the news is less good for his rival Kristpas Porzingis, who is suffering from a “rare” health problem. .
