2011 NBA Finals Schedule: Mavs Head Home For Three Games In Dallas

The Mavericks are leaving Miami having earned a 1-1 split, and stealing home court advantage.They can now win this series without even having to go back to Miami. Here is the rest of the series schedule, starting with Game 3 on Sunday.

Game 3, Heat at Mavericks, Sunday, 7, ABC

Game 4, Heat at Mavericks, Tuesday, 8, ABC

Game 5, Heat at Mavericks, Thursday, 8, ABC

Game 6*, Mavericks at Heat, Sunday, 7, ABC

Game 7*, Mavericks at Heat, Tuesday, 8, ABC

* = if necessary

You'll hear a lot about this before the game starts, but the Mavericks are going to be in a little bit of a disadvantage with the way that the Finals are set up. It's incredibly difficult to win three games in a row against a team as good as Miami, which means that conventional wisdom is on the Mavs dropping at least one of these games at home, which means that they'll have home court advantage in the series once again. But they still have the momentum, and the ability to put this one away at home.
