Warriors vs Mavericks Game 2 Prediction and NBA Odds
|Warriors vs Mavericks Game 2 Prediction and NBA Odds: Golden State Warriors is predicted to win tonight’s Game 2 Conference finals against the Dallas Mavericks as per the latest prediction.|
The Dallas Mavericks need to reassess their strategy to bounce back against the Golden State Warriors in Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals tonight. It was a frustrating night for Jason Kidd’s men in the first game as they couldn’t put up a solid fight. Luka Doncic scored 20 points with 7 rebounds and 4 assists but a complete team effort seemed missing for the Mavs.
It was a disappointing performance from Jalen Brunson who added 14 points to his name and missed all 5 of his three-pointer opportunities. Dallas recently got another bad news as they were fined $50,000 for not maintaining the bench decorum in Game 7 of the last round against the Suns.
The Golden State Warriors will look to repeat their dominating performance against the Dallas Mavericks at the Chase Center arena tonight. A 2-game lead in the opening home games will definitely give a big upper hand to the Warriors. Stephen Curry looked in fantastic form in Game 1 as he scored 21 points with 12 rebounds and 4 assists.
It was a comeback game for Otto Porter Jr. who was suffering from soreness in his right foot. He played very well by contributing 10 points and 6 points in 23 minutes. The plan to counter Doncic, who maintained an average of 31.5 in the playoffs, also worked well for the Warriors.
