The most famous of Mavericks’ alumni met in a suite at American Airlines Center and soaked up the atmosphere of Game 3 of the Finals between the new Mavericks and the Boston Celtics. “It’s crazy man,” Barea ..read more

The Boston Celtics moved to within one win of clinching the franchise’s NBA-high 18th championship Wednesday night with a 106-99 triumph over the Dallas Mavericks at American Airlines Center.   Boston now has a commanding 3-0 lead in this best-of-seven series, which resumes back at AAC Friday at 7:30 p.m. Teams with a 3-0 lead in a best-of-seven series are a perfect 156-0 in the NBA playoffs. The Mavs were hampered by the fact that their best player, Luka Dončić , fouled out with 4:12 left in the game and the Mavs only behind, 93-90. That automatic ejection by Dončić was the kiss of death ..read more

Jerry West is gone, but the logo will go on forever. News of West’s death on Tuesday sent shock waves through the NBA. One of the greatest players, executives and people ever associated with the game died at 86. At the NBA Finals, coach Jason Kidd was emotional about West, who he got to know as part of the West Virginia crew that left a big imprint on the NBA during the ‘60s, ‘70s and beyond. “When you talk about the Logo, Jerry was a gentleman to everyone,” Kidd said before Game 3 of the Finals. “He was the best, when you talk about history, you talk about the game of basketball and what he s ..read more

On the very eve of Game 3 of the NBA Finals, Boston Celtics center Kristaps Porzingis wanted to make one message perfectly clear. The Celtics have listed Porzingis as questionable for Game 3 with what they term as a “rare injury’ described as a torn medial retinaculum allowing dislocation of the posterior tibialis tendon in his left leg. But unless something totally out of the ordinary occurs before the next game in this best-of-seven series against the Dallas Mavericks is played, Porzingis plans to be on the court Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. when Game 3 tips off at American Airlines Center.

When it comes to recovering from an 0-2 deficit in the NBA Finals and successfully winning that best-of-seven series, Kyrie Irving has been there, done that. And that gives the Dallas Mavericks a lot of hope as they attempt to win a series against the Boston Celtics with the odds heavily stacked against them. Thanks to Sunday’s gritty 105-98 win over Dallas in Boston, the Celtics own an advantageous 2-0 lead over the Mavs in this best-of-seven series. Teams are just 5-31 all-time in the NBA Finals when they trail 2-0, in a best-of-seven series. And Irving played a major role on one of those co ..read more

Irving struggled, but so did Mavericks’ bench in Game 2

BOSTON – The simple fact is that the Mavericks now must win four of the next five games, or four in a row if you want to think really optimistically, to finish this season as NBA champions. So we’re telling you there’s a chance. But based on the way the Boston Celtics have played in going ahead 2-0 after Sunday’s 105-98 victory at TD Garden, it is testing the faith of the Mavericks’ believers. The odds certainly are against them. Boston hasn’t lost four of five this season. They only lost two in a row four times in the 82-game regular season and never lost three straight. Of course, in the Eas ..read more

BOSTON – Dallas Mavericks point guard Luka Dončić didn’t particularly care for a reporter’s desire to divide Sunday’s 105-98 loss to the Boston Celtics into different analytic categories. Getting down to the brass tacks of why the Mavs are mired in an 0-2 hole in this best-of-seven series in the NBA Finals against the Celtics, Dončić simply said: “Every game we lose, it’s a missed opportunity for us.” And Sunday’s loss was a subtle missed opportunity that should give the Mavs some measure of encouragement going into Games 3, which will be Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. in the friendly confines of Amer ..read more

BOSTON – The Mavericks’ flair for strong retorts after suffering a loss in these playoffs abandoned them on Sunday night at TD Garden. The Boston Celtics took charge in the third quarter and held on for a hard-earned 105-98 victory to take a 2-0 lead in the NBA Finals as the Mavericks lost consecutive games in the playoffs for the first time in this remarkable run. Teams that win the first two games of the NBA Finals win the series 86.1 percent of the time (31-5). So it’s not a death sentence for the Mavericks. But they do have work to do. They will be coming home for Games 3 and 4 at Ame ..read more
