San Antonio Spurs vs Dallas Mavericks Game 3 will take place on Saturday afternoon as the teams look to gain the advantage in their NBA 2014 Playoffs First Round series. The game is scheduled to start at 4.30 p.m. ET and can be watched on TV on the TNT network or online through free live stream (details below).
The Spurs and Mavericks come into the game tied 1-1 in the series. Dallas has done fantastically well to eradicate the Spurs' home advantage in the series and their reward is to take the series back to the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, for the next three games.
If they can win their three home games now then they would cause a massive upset and dump San Antonio out of the Playoffs.
Not many expected much from the Mavericks this postseason. They only entered as No. 8 seeds, and coming up against a very strong San Antonio team that is seeded No. 1, many had expected them to be First Round fodder for the Spurs to wipe the floor with.
However, they have shown their fight and now have the chance to go ahead in the series of they win in Game 3 tonight.
San Antonio have built their season around a steamroller offense that most teams have struggled to stop. However, Dallas has successfully slowed them down over the first two games of the series – the Spurs' offensive rating (98.7) is almost 10 points lower than it was over the regular season.
San Antonio will be looking to the trio of Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Tim Duncan to drag them back into form today.
