Mavs +5.5

1.5 unit.


Down 0-1 the Mavs should play with a lot of urgency. Porzingis should have a big game after the garbage the other night and they lost by 8 without him for most of the second half. Dallas’s defense has some holes but Kawhi/PG/Morris shot a combined 52% in Game 1 and it was only an 8 point win. The Mavs also had 9 more turnovers than the Clippers so if they can get that number down this will be a close game late. After starting the game down 18-2 and then tying it up in the first quarter and staying competitive the whole way the Mavs should play with confidence throughout this game no matter what happens.
