The Dallas Mavericks will try and avoid elimination on Monday night as they host the Denver Nuggets in Game 4 of their Western Conference semifinal series.  The Mavericks probably should only be down 2-1 in this series but a bad call by the referees allowed Denver's Carmelo Anthony to get away a 3-point shot that he hit to win Game 3 by a score of 106-105 on Saturday. "We're not going to get that last play back, so just by watching it doesn't do us any good," Dallas' Dirk Nowitzki said.

SBG Global reports that early NBA betting has the public taking Mavericks at Home.

The NBA has admitted that the referees made a mistake in Game 3 but that doesn't change the fact that instead of being down 2-1 the Mavericks are down 3-0 in this series.  No team in NBA history has ever come back from a 3-0 deficit to win a series so it doesn't look good for Dallas.  The Nuggets though are taking nothing for granted heading into Monday's game. "We're going to be aggressive and we're going to fight extremely hard," said Denver's Chauncey Billups, "They're facing elimination. That's always the toughest game to win, especially in a sweep situation. They're going to fight really hard and do everything they can possibly do to keep their season alive."

The Mavericks have never been swept in a four-game series so Monday's game should be interesting. "These guys have met adversity with unity, with a collective will," Dallas head coach Rick Carlisle said. "It happened in November; we got off to a 2-7 start. It happened in January; we lost four games in a row and everybody said we wouldn't be a playoff team. It happened after we lost to Oklahoma City ... and it's obviously going to happen now. But, hey, that's what this is about. When it gets tough, you've got to stick together and keep fighting."

Here are the NBA betting stats for Monday's game. The Nuggets are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games as a road underdog. The Nuggets are 16-5 ATS in their last 21 games overall. The Nuggets are 5-0 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Dallas.

The Mavericks are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games as a home favorite. The Mavericks are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Conference Semifinals games.

The Under is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings in Dallas between the two teams.
