lu dort

Las Vegas - Normally, we would look at the Mavericks after getting blown out by the Thunder (117-95) in game one, but NOT tonight. Why? Same reasons that we listed when we took OKC to win the opener. Don't wanna be redundant, but this is how we brought you the W in game one.

'OKC is playing as well or better than any team in the NBA. The Thunder have ripped off nine in a row, make it TEN in a row, and covered eight of the last nine, make it nine of the last 10.'

Looking at the Mavs, gotta say that Luka does not look like Luka. Doncic sprained his right knee in game three of the Mavericks' first-round series against the LA Clippers, and has absolutely no lift. He was 1-of-8 from downtown Tuesday night and is five of 35 over the past four games. OUCH! The knee is certainly an issue, but so is Lu Dort. Damien Lillard who knows a little something something about scoring called Dort one of the BEST perimeter defenders in the NBA. The other issue is the bench. Oklahoma City got 42 points from the bench while Dallas managed just 23. Gimme OKC and just like game one, will drop my cash on the money line.
