Heat Win Game 3 of the NBA Finals: Do the Mavericks Have a Chance?

More

The Miami Heat beat the Dallas Mavericks, 88-86, in Game 3 of the NBA Finals Sunday night. Miami's win gives them the lead in the series, 2 to 1. Though the Heat are only one game ahead in the series, some students of sports history are wondering if the Mavericks have any chance to come back and win it all.

The Huffington Post explains:

Game Four of the finals happens on Tuesday night in Dallas.
