Lakers-Mavericks Game 4 Odds

It’s hard to believe but the Lakers-Mavericks Game 4 could potentially be an elimination game for Kobe Bryant and the crew after Los Angeles came into the second round of the NBA Playoffs as favorites to win the Championship. 

The odds of the Lakers being eliminated are not only good but almost inevitable.  All 98 NBA teams to go down 0-3 have eventually been eliminated; 59 were swept.

"I told them not to think about that," Lakers head coach Phil Jackson said Saturday. "You're thinking about winning tomorrow's game, forcing another game in L.A. on Tuesday."

The Associated Press noted that, if any team could claw back from 0-3, Jackson, Bryant and the three-peat-seeking Lakers might fit the prototype. And the Mavericks have a history of finding ways to lose in the playoffs.

Dallas blew a 2-0 lead in the 2006 NBA finals, and came as close as anyone to blowing a 3-0 lead, needing seven games to get past Portland in 2003
