Team Preview

Jason Tatum Boston Celtics

Well, it would be kind of funny to say that the Boston Celtics are not clearly the better team in the series I wouldn’t expect you to keep reading if I did end up telling you that the Celtics are not the better team in this series. But I can confidently say that I think they made a big mistake by giving Maverick the one thing that is most powerful to the human element and that is hope!

There are a lot of whispers and accusations that the Boston Celtics must have “wanted to lose game 4 on purpose” because they wanted to go back to Boston to win the championships at home! It certainly could be a argument because it looked like they didn’t even want to be there in game four and got absolutely demolished from start to finish!

Jayson Tatum led the team in scoring with just 15 points, Sam Hauser added 14 points off the bench while Jaylen Brown and Jrue Holiday each scored 10 points. Derrick White shot just two of eight from the field to finish with six points while Al Horford scored just three points in 23 minutes of action.

The Celtics looked nothing like the team that shot out to a 3-0 series lead and they put up almost no resistance once they fell behind by double digits early. I think we’re going to get our answer if they truly want to go to Boston because if they come out here and completely dominate the game, then we know. We will find out tonight!

Boston Celtics Player Facts

  • Jrue Holiday ranks 2nd in the Eastern Conference amongst qualified players for 3P% (42.9%) this season.

  • Derrick White is one of only four qualified players in the league averaging at least 1.0 threes, 1.0 steals and 1.0 blocks this season.

The Dallas Mavericks

Team Preview

Luka Doncic

I know we don’t wanna blow that game for when out of proportion for the Mavericks and I don’t think we should start indicating that they have a chance of winning the championship because of one game, but giving the Mavericks momentum and hope could really cause problem for the Celtics moving forward!

We just seen Dallas fight off the Celtics brooms and finally get their first win of the series in a 122-84 win in Game 4 on Friday. They will be riding into Boston with some momentum and should be ready to put up another big fight tonight!

Luka Doncic led the team with 29 points, five rebounds, five assists and three steals, Kyrie Irving added 21 points with six assists while Tim Hardaway drained five 3-pointers to finish with 15 points in just 12 minutes off the bench.

The Mavericks have been as close as you can be when trailing a team by 3-0, but it all came together for them in Game 4 as they set the tone defensively and outpaced the Celtics in one of the biggest wins in NBA Finals history. The Mavericks feasted inside the paint as they outscored the Celtics by 60-24 in the paint. Can they actually come in to Boston and put a major upset in the finals?

Dallas Mavericks Player Facts

  • P.J. Washington is one of only three players to have scored 40+ points off the bench in a game this season.

  • Kyrie Irving ranks 7th amongst qualified players for FT% (90.5%) this season.

Game Prediction

Luka Vs Tatum Celtics Mavericks

The pick : Mavericks +6.5 -110

The Props : P.J Washington over 11.5 Pts -125

This is not an easy game to try to figure out, because the way the Celtics played in game four truly makes you feel like that they might have actually wanted to come back to Boston to beat the Mavericks tonight and win it all on their home court, but to risk all of that just for a home when is a little far-fetched coming from a professional basketball organization such as Boston. I mean, The Mavericks came out swinging in Game 4 to hold off elimination and getting a sweep out on them and I’m sure they will still be feeling that they have a chance to pull off the greatest comeback in history after such a dominant win on Friday.

The Celtics didn't match the urgency of the Mavericks and quickly found themselves in big trouble in Game 4 and I can see that possibility of that happening again. The pressure is now all on the Celtics to finish the job and avoid a meltdown! Mavericks look dangerous as the road underdogs in this one if you ask me. The Mavericks got a real shot of confidence after almost coming back from a 21-point deficit in Game 3 and now they're playing great basketball with nothing to lose but to win!

The pressure is on the Celtics to finish off the job at home, but there is still an injury cloud hanging over Kristaps Porzingis, so I think the Mavericks stay hot and at least get the cover in a

Game that is going to be extremely close no matter who wins tonight!
