Boston Celtics vs. Dallas Mavericks Game 3 Prediction

Boston knows their chances of being world champions significantly increase if they can steal one game on the road.

This Celtics team has been the best in the NBA all season, and it is no surprise to see them just two games away from being champions.

Dallas, meanwhile, desperately needs to find a way to win tonight.

The Mavs have looked out of sorts in the series' first two games.

The only player who has stepped up in this series is Luka Doncic.

The role players must be much better at home if Dallas wants to come back and claim this series.

Doncic gave it his all in Game 2, leading the way with 32 points, 11 assists, and 11 rebounds.

Kyrie Irving struggled, shooting 7-18 from the floor and 0-3 from three.

P.J. Washington delivered a solid effort with 17 points and seven rebounds.

Jrue Holiday was the star of Game 2. The former champion dropped 26 points while ripping down 11 rebounds.

Jaylen Brown added 21 points and seven boards in the win.

Jayson Tatum struggled with his shot. Tatum went 6-22 from the floor but did dish out a game-best 12 assists.

Let’s dive into my best bet for NBA Finals Game 3.

Boston Celtics vs. Dallas Mavericks Game 3 Pick

This line screams Dallas tonight.

We will trust the line and the home team.

The Mavs have struggled in this series, yet we see them as a short home favorite after being a seven-point underdog in Games 1 and 2.

Dallas will play desperate tonight, and their role players will perform much better than in Games 1 and 2.

Lastly, the Celtics may be without Kristaps Porzingis, who has been outstanding in this series.
