NBA Finals Betting Online – Mavericks Need To Refocus For Game Three At Home Against Heat

Posted by Craig Parsons on 2/6/2014 9:46:52 PM

Heading into this series there were a ton of question marks about how the Miami Heat would be able to handle the outstanding play of Dallas Mavericks’ All Star forward Dirk Nowitzki, and whether or not they would be able to slow him down enough to clinch an NBA championship. As the series shifts to the state of Texas for game three Sunday, the Heat have already proven that they can handle Disco Dirk, and now it’s up to the Mavericks to respond.

Online Sports Betting Odds: Dallas Mavericks

With the 2011 Belmont Stakes betting race right around the corner, the time is now for Dallas to score a couple of victories if they are going to deliver the fans its first title in franchise history. The Mavericks have all of the tools to take down Miami, and now it comes down to their ability to execute under pressure. That they have the hometown crowd behind them should help with a much more up-tempo atmosphere that suits their style of play, and head coach Rick Carlisle is hoping that will infuse some energy into his team.

The big three for the Heat have looked sharp, but the bench will need to continue to play the way it did in the opener to close out the series. Reserve Mario Chalmers had 12 points in that game and looked more like the player that head coach Erik Spoelstra thought that he would be when he opened the year in the starting lineup. Lebron James continues to prove himself as one of the best to have ever played the game with a couple of solid performances, and as long as Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh are backing him up there is no reason to think that his confidence will falter. Bosh will need to continue to work the paint the way he did at home, particularly in game one when the Mavericks simply had no answer for his inside-outside game.

Nowitzki will be relied on to carry the bulk of the offense once again, but as has been the case all year Dallas will need more from the rest of its starting five and a couple of key reserves. JJ Barea and Jason Terry have been key scorers off of the bench all season, and Peja Stojakovic had been an asset from beyond the arc heading into this final series. One of the biggest problems that the team struggled with away from home was that nobody was able to step up for the Mavericks other than Nowitzki, with guys like Shawn Marion and Jason Kidd not looking very confident. That will have to change with the hometown crowd behind them, as Dallas looks to make their sports betting bonus move the next couple of games beginning on Sunday night at the American Airlines Arena.
