DALLAS — Mavs fans geared up Saturday for Sunday's big Game 3 of the NBA Finals dressed in their colorful best.

Academy Sports in Dallas hosted a special giveaway offering game tickets to the fan with the best painted outfit.

Mavericks team representatives were on hand to pick the winners, and there were several — from the Lady Maniaacs to a group of women known as "The Extinguishers."

Also on hand for the fun were the Mavs dancers and the Maniaacs.

The Trinity Railway Express is adding a special train for Mavs fans heading to Game 3 on Sunday. The TRE does not ordinarily operate on Sundays, but a train will leave Fort Worth's T&P Station at 5:30 p.m. bound for Victory Park. The train will make a return run following the contest.

Stay with Channel 8 and WFAA.com for continuing coverage of the Mavericks as we go into Games 3, 4, and 5 in Dallas.

Be sure to watch a special edition of Dale Hansen's Sports Special on WFAA Sunday evening at 6 o'clock, followed by the game live at 7.
