NBA Player Prop Bets: Desperation Overs

The Mavericks' defense was good enough to win in Game 3.

Their offense was not.

In 16 playoff games, Dallas has shot 37.3% from beyond the arc. This is only slightly worse than Golden State, who has maintained 37.9% three-point playoff efficiency. The Mavericks are the only playoff team to carry over a 50% three-point frequency number, shooting 51.3% of their shots from beyond the arc. The Mavericks shot just 28.9% (13-of-45) from beyond the arc in Game 3, a crippling obstacle for their chances of victory. Despite their struggles, Dallas still held a 42-33 lead late in the second quarter, before struggling throughout the second half.

No team has been able to overcome a 3-0 series deficit, and only three teams have ever rallied to even force a Game 7. However, one of those teams was the Dallas Mavericks, who forced a Game 7 against the Portland Trail Blazers in 2003. Can the Mavericks earn that elusive first win over the Warriors, and start on the path toward making NBA history?
