Can The Mavericks Do The Impossible?
In the storied 75 years of the National Basketball Association, there have been exactly this many teams to overcome a 0-3 deficit in a postseason series:
As in, never.
So, OK, do the Luka-led Dallas Mavericks have a chance to make dramatic history?
Warriors head coach Steve Kerr knows precisely what a rested team can accomplish in the playoffs.
If Golden State doesn’t close it out tonight, that dynamic team will soon.
(Side note: Please look up what the Warriors did by fleecing the Timberwolves to acquire Andrew Wiggins in that lopsided trade. It’s beyond silly).
Moving on: Injuries to the Heat’s big 5 is disconcerting, but I’m sticking with Miami – not as a city or a part of Floribille – but they’ll find a way to make it to Game 7 and win at home.
The Celtics are now -175 (odds courtesy of our good friends at BetMGM) to emerge from the East.
Take Miami, folks.
As far as tonight goes, this looks like a sweep.
Is Doncic done? Gassed? My guess is that he is and I’m saying he’s gonna struggle and score less than 34.5 points, which is what the fantastic FanDuel is offering.
He’ll try to shoulder the load and it will be too much. He could well produce solid stats with rebounds and assists (so look at those numbers) but not when it comes to points.
The Warriors won’t let that happen.
Book it and best of luck.
