The NBA is steadily heading towards the last few days of the 2021-2022 season and in the Eastern Conference, the Miami Heat has taken a two-one lead versus the Boston Celtics. But we are here to discuss the Western Conference battle between the Dallas Mavericks and the Golden State Warriors. The Warriors have a two-nil lead over the Mavs and they registered back-to-back wins in the series. In the last game, the Warriors erased a 19-point deficit to take a two-nil lead. The Mavs have come back from a nil-two scenario against the Suns, can they do it again?

Best bets on Warriors vs Mavericks

Handicap: Bookmakers from 22bet believe the Mavericks have favorable odds of 1.66 and this is because it is a home scenario. The handicap in the favor of -2.5 has the odds of 1.90. The Warriors have won two in a row like the Suns did in the Second Round and it was when the series moved to the Mavs’ home-floor that the scenario changed. I believe the Warriors will close the deal here though. (Handicap 2 -4.5 for 2.95)

Player Props: Bookmakers at bet365 predict odds of 1.80 for Klay Thompson going Over 18.5 Points(At least 19 Points). Thompson has scored 15 in each of the last two games and he has been shooting a high percentage, which means the scoring balance has been incredible. I believe Thompson will have a big game and will go “Over” here. (Player Props: Player Points: Klay Thompson Over 18.5 for 1.90)

Total: Bookmakers at 1xbet give the Total of Over/Under for 218.5 has the equal odds of 1.97. The series so far has fetched 199 and 243 points so the total has been on the either side of the above range. It means that it is tough to predict what will happen here as no precedent has been set but the last game was scoring galore. I believe the total will go “over” here. (Total Over 218.5 for 1.97)

Mavericks: How will they respond at home?

The Mavericks have been not defending well and they lost their defensive cool in the third quarter of the last game. The Mavs have been riding the hot hand of Luka Doncic, who scored 42 points in the last game whereas Jalen Brunson also did a great job, dipping 31 points. The Mavs shot 47% from the three-point line and they made 21 threes. And losing from this position only means that their defense was terrible in the second half of the game. They were outscored 68:45 in the third and fourth quarter which means that the Warriors locked them out on both ends of the floor. The Mavs have turned things in their favor during the last series, can they do it yet again? The Warriors’ offense is clicking right now and they can be tough away from home considering their current rhythm

Warriors: Can they avoid mistakes made by the Suns?

The Warriors will need to win at least one of the two games away from home. The Suns played terribly on the offensive end during the second half of the series versus the Mavs and the Warriors can’t afford that. The Warriors have more shot creators than the Suns though but their defense was exposed by the Mavs in the last game. Kevon Looney has been just off the charts in the last few games and had an astounding 20+ points and 10+ rebounds night. Yes, yes, Curry, Thompson, and Poole are all elite scorers but I don’t think the Warriors would have made it this far if not for Wiggins whose all-around game has been a huge difference-maker. Can the Warriors avoid the Suns’ fate, I do think so.
