Boston Celtics vs. Dallas Mavericks Game 3 Prediction

It's a make-or-break moment for Dallas. No team in the history of the NBA has ever come back to win a series down 3-0.

The Celtics have lost just two games in the entire postseason.

Boston is 3-0 thus far in game threes on the road in the playoffs.

Dallas, a team known for its resilience, is ready to turn the tide and make a comeback.

The Mavs went down in their first two series of the playoffs.

Unfortunately for Dallas, Boston is a much tougher team to come back and steal a series from.

In order for Dallas to win tonight, they will need someone not named Luka Doncic to step up.

Outside of Doncic, the Mavs have underperformed early in this series.

Boston, meanwhile, has shown why they are considered the deepest roster in the NBA.

In Game 1, Jaylen Brown led the way with 22 points.

Game 2 was the Jrue Holiday game, as he dropped 26 points to lead the Celts a win.

Superstar Jayson Tatum has struggled in the first two games of the series.

Dallas has jumped to a three-point favorite tonight.

The total for this contest is set at 213.5.

Boston Celtics vs. Dallas Mavericks Game 3 Prop Pick

Tatum could not be more due.

The fact that we see his line so high tonight tells the tale.

Tatum is yet to clear this number in the finals, but it is not due to a lack of volume.

The former Duke standout has attempted 38 shots from the floor in the first two games.

We will see shots begin to fall for Tatum tonight, who will clear this number and cash in.
