The Golden State Warriors dominated the Dallas Mavericks in Game 1 at home, winning 112-87. The Warriors shot over 56% from the field and never looked back.
But Dallas still has a legitimate chance to win this Western Conference Finals matchup. They just need to win one road game and all their home games. How will the Mavericks respond in tonight’s game against the Warriors?
Here are some props to consider for Game 2:
Mavericks vs. Warriors: Luka Doncic Over 3.5 Three-pointers
After a poor shooting night in Game 1, Luka Doncic will be a man on a mission tonight. Doncic took 10 three-point attempts in the first game of the series but only hit three. If he continues with the same volume, I’d expect Doncic to shoot at a higher percentage in this game.
Doncic wasn’t at his best from three in the series against the Suns, but he took at least seven threes in every game against the Suns and nailed four or more threes in three of the seven games.
With the volume increasing, I like Doncic to get at least four threes made.
Bet: Luka Doncic Over 3.5 Three-pointers (-122 via FanDuel)
Mavericks vs. Warriors: Draymond Green Over 8.5 Rebounds
I’m sticking with this prop. Draymond Green added nine rebounds in the first game of the series, despite only playing 29 minutes. I’m going to assume that the Mavericks keep tonight’s game closer and that if he can stay out of foul trouble, Green will play 30 or more minutes.
Green is averaging about nine rebounds dating back to the series against Memphis. When he’s getting minutes, he’s getting rebounds. He’s only missed getting nine rebounds in three games out of seven. In one, he was ejected, in another, the Warriors won by 30, and in the last one, the Warriors lost by almost 40. The game just needs to remain close.
Bet: Draymond Green Over 8.5 Rebounds (-102 via FanDuel)
Mavericks vs. Warriors: Steph Curry Over 5.5 Rebounds
What’s with Steph Curry lately? He’s been crashing the glass at a rapid rate recently. In his last two games, Curry has 19 rebounds in 71 minutes. He also had a game against Memphis, where he had nine rebounds.
At FanDuel, we’re getting Curry to get six rebounds at +110. In the regular season, he averaged 5.2 rebounds, and it now looks like he’s trying to crash the glass a bit more.
Therefore, let’s take his Over 5.5 rebounds at +110. The Warriors will force the Mavericks into many threes, and if those shots don’t fall, Green and Curry will benefit.
Bet: Steph Curry Over 5.5 Rebounds (+110 via FanDuel)
