MIAMI LEADS SERIES 2-1
the Dallas Mavericks now have their collective backs forced against the wall as the Miami HEAT go into Game Four in Dallas with a commanding 2-1 NBA Finals lead. As many of our readers know, the winner of Game Three with the series is tied 1-1 since the Finals switched to the 2-3-2 format has gone on to win the championship 11 out of 11 times.
With Game Three now in the rear-view mirror, how will this Mavericks’ team — so resilient throughout this postseason — respond to the challenge of a HEAT squad that has simply played better basketball through three games?
On the other hand, Miami has a chance to go for the jugular in Game Four. Will they show the killer instinct they’ve displayed the majority of this postseason and crush the Mavericks’ championship hopes by taking a commanding 3-1 series lead?
