    They will also be bolstered by the inclusion of Kristaps Porzingis, who had missed Game 3 with injury but is available to play as Boston looks to wrap up the series and the title.

    However, Dallas will have the backing of a home crowd as they look to take the series back to Boston for game five.

    Should Boston go on to sweep the Mavericks, it would be the first series sweep in the NBA Finals since the Golden State Warriors beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 4-0 in the 2018 championship series.

    Prior to that, a sweep had not occurred since the San Antonio Spurs accomplished the feat in 2007 when they beat the Cavaliers.

    “Even now, up 3-0, nobody is celebrating or anything,” Tatum said on Friday.

    “We still feel like there’s a lot more that we can do. There’s a lot more that we want to do.

    “I think from our experiences over the past couple of years, the thing that we’ve really gotten a lot better at is not relaxing, not being complacent.”
