Melbourne failed to put the JackJumpers away in the second half of game 3 and the Ants came back to bite them for it ,as now cult-hero Jack McVeigh dropped a bomb from well outside the three-point line with 1 second left to hand the 2-1 series lead to Tasmania. 

Tasmania’s effort and attitude lifted them again, dragging them out of a double-digit deficit for the second game in a row which has deflated Melbourne and hurt their confidence. Tasmania also overcame an injury to Marcus Lee who missed half of the match with a knee injury. The JackJumpers want their first ever title and they will get it on Thursday night and will celebrate with the fans all Easter Weekend.

The play is the play that has played the last two games Tasmania and the under. Tasmania to win and Melbourne to score less than 88.5 points.

Melbourne United Form & Team News

Melbourne United did almost everything right in game 3, but almost wasn’t good enough as they failed to put Tasmania away despite leading by 10 points in the third quarter and going into the fourth with a 7-point lead, eventually beaten on the buzzer and an opportunity for the series lead went begging.

Matt Dellevadova was a class above the rest, as he has been all finals series for Melbourne. The NBA-veteran controlled everything for United as he posted 12 points in the first half and finished with 21 points for the game along with a game-high 8 assists. 

Tasmania did a better job shutting down Chris Goulding but the United captain still found a way to get into the game with 17 points, going 4-11 from the 3-point line.

Tasmania JackJumpers Form & Team News

Jack McVeigh stole the show with a 1-second buzzer beater to hand the JackJumpers a 2-1 series lead, sinking a prayer from just inside half-court and sending the travelling fans into hysterics at John Cain Arena.

McVeigh led the Ants with 18 points and had a game-high 12 rebounds, but he was not the only hero of course. Majok Deng played a huge role off the bench with United unable to stop the South Sudanese-Australian turning momentum back into Tasmania’s favour at the start of the third quarter with the JackJumpers erasing a 7-point deficit in the first 2 minutes. Deng finished the match with 15 points in 16.29 minutes on the court.

Marcus Lee left the court with a knee sprain and will undergo scans with the center's involvement very questionable for game 4.
