DALLAS — No team in NBA history has rallied from a 3-0 series deficit to win, which is what the Lakers are facing after tonight’s loss to the Dallas Mavericks in Game 3 of their second-round playoff series. Three teams in the NHL have done it, most recently the Philadelphia Flyers overcoming a 3-0 deficit to the Boston Bruins last season. It’s also been done once in Major League Baseball. So, even Kobe Bryant had to laugh when he said he didn’t think the series was over. Said Bryant: “I don’t know, I mean, I might be sick in the head or crazy something like that because I still think we’re still going to win this series. I might be nuts. Win on Sunday and go back home and see if they can win in L.A.”
Game 4 is Sunday in Dallas. Game 5, if necessary, is Tuesday at Staples Center.
