The 3-peat for the Lakers does not look good since they lost Game 2 at home and are now in a 0-2 hole heading to the Big D. The Mavs did not play great in Game 2, but they went on a decisive 9-0 run in the 4th quarter and for the 2nd straight game the Lakers were ice cold from beyond the 3-point arc only hitting on 10% of their 3-pointers (2/20). They must shoot the rock better only shooting 41% from the floor in Game 2, as they had more rebounds than the Mavs and had fewer turnovers and still lost the game by 8 points.

The Mavs won Game 2 91-83 and for the 2nd straight game they covered the spread and the posted total went Under.

This season the Lakers are 42-47-1 ATS and the Mavs are 51-36-3 ATS. The road team is 12-4-1 in the last 17 games between these 2 teams.

The Lakers had not lost the first 2 games of a series since the 2008 finals, which is the last playoff series they lost.

For the 2nd straight game in the series Dirk Nowitzki had a solid game scoring 24 points on 9/16 shooting and he grabbed 7 rebounds. Shaun Marion and Tyson Chandler combined to score 20 points and they shot pretty well, but they were lucky the Lakers were cold shooting the rock since even though Jason Kidd and Jason Terry combined for 19 points they only shot 6/22 from the field.

Andrew Bynum (18 points 13 rebounds) and Kobe Bryant (23 points 9/20 shooting) played OK in Game 2, but they did not get much help. Pau Gasol only scored 13 points on 5/12 shooting and Lamar Odom really struggled with 6 points on 3/12 shooting. The Lakers bench disappeared in the game with only 12 points. Bryant is known as a clutch player, but he went scoreless in the 4th quarter until he hit a free throw with a little more than 3 minutes left in the final period.

The Lakers have to get back to using Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol more getting these guys more touches, especially in the paint.

Not only are the Lakers down 0-2, but also they will likely be without defensive stud Ron Artest for Game 3 after he was ejected from Game 2 with a flagrant foul laying a clothesline on Dallas G Jose Juan Barea.

It is interesting that the last team to win a series after losing their first 2 games at home is Dallas, who did it in 2005.

Game 3 is, pretty much, a must win game for the Lakers since no team has ever come back from a 0-3 hole to win a playoff series.
