Celtics Set as Underdogs vs. Mavericks in Game 3 of NBA Finals

Boston is listed as a two-point underdog for Game 3 of the NBA Finals in Dallas.

The Celtics covered the spread in the first two games as home favorites, but this is their first time as underdogs this postseason. Boston hasn’t been favored by less than 6.5 points in any postseason game until now.

Dallas needs a win to stay in the series, but Boston, with a 6-0 road record this postseason, poses a formidable challenge. No team has ever overcome a 3-0 deficit in a seven-game series.
