The Boston Celtics are up 2-0 in the NBA Finals heading into Game 3 on Wednesday night, but Dallas Mavericks forward P.J. Washington doesn’t think the reason his team is behind is from their lack of offense.

“We’re just missing open looks,” Washington told reporters Tuesday, per MassLive’s Souichi Terada. “I don’t think it’s because of their defense. Sometimes they’re late shot clock or bad shots. Sometimes they’ll go in and we just have to take better ones and shoot them with confidence.”

The Celtics have taken convincing wins against the Mavericks during the Finals. In Game 1, Boston took a 107-89 win over Dallas, and Game 2 was a 105-98 win.

In Game 2, Washington totaled 40 minutes on the court and had 17 points. He shot 46.2% from the field and had seven rebounds, one assist and one block.
