Mavericks vs Warriors Prediction
What a difference 48 hours can make when it comes to how a team shoots the basketball! In Game 3 of these Western Conference Finals, the Mavericks shot a putrid 28% as a team from beyond the three-point arc. Just two nights later in Game 4, Dallas flipped the script. As a team, the Mavs knocked down over 46% of their shot attempts from three-point range. When it comes to a Game 5 Mavericks vs Warriors prediction, the handicap is quite simple. If the Mavs are knocking down their three-pointers and getting offensive contributions from role players, they very well could spring a road upset.
Luka Doncic was phenomenal as usual in the Game 4 win for the Mavericks, but this time, he had plenty of help. Oddly enough, fellow backcourt players Jalen Brunson and Spencer Dinwiddie combined for just 25 points in the win. While both players had their moments, it was the likes of Dorian Finney-Smith (23 points), Reggie Bullock (18) and Maxi Kleber (13) who stepped up their games offensively. The question now becomes whether or not these three-and-D role players can achieve similar shooting success on the road. Dallas was able to hit shots in the first half of Game 2 before going ice cold after the break and letting a 14-point lead slip away.
For the Warriors, the fact that the reserves were more competitive than the core group of starters in Game 4 was eye-opening. One area to pay attention to early on in Game 5 is the battle on the boards. After outrebounding the Mavs by double-digits in each of the first three contests, the Warriors actually lost the margin on the glass in Game 4. Kevon Looney and Draymond Green will need to spearhead a bounce-back effort in this department.
At the end of the day, it’s hard to bet against Stephen Curry and the Warriors closing the series out at home. That being said, Dallas might be a bit more competitive than a seven-point Mavericks vs Warriors betting spread would seem to imply.
