(NBA) Dallas vs. Golden State, 05/18/2022 9:00 PM, Score: 87 - 112
Total: 214.00 | -106.00 Over
Result: Loss
T.M. Selection: Mavericks/Warriors OVER.

I am on the over in the Dallas Mavericks vs Golden State Warriors game on Wednesday. The Mavericks looked really good in their road games against the Suns in the previous round. They put up 109+ points in 3/4 of their road games in that series and I think they are going to play with a more offensive mindset in this game too. The Mavericks have looked good on defense in this postseason but they have also looked a lot better on their home court with their defensive play, resorting to a more offensive effort in their road games where they are trying to put up more points. They won't have the advantage here in this road game so I expect them to come with a more offensive effort to keep themselves in this game and keep the score close against this very strong team that plays their best basketball on their home court. The Warriors looked great in their previous series too, taking out the 2nd seed in only 6 games. They put up 100+ points in all 3 of their home games too, even putting up 140+ points in 1 of those games. I think they are also going to play more offensively here and try to jump out to an early lead where they can try to bury the Mavericks here. I don't think the Mavericks are going to go down that easily though, especially after that impressive performance in Phoenix in game 7 of their previous series. I expect the warriors to win this game on their home court but I think the Mavericks will put up a good fight to keep this a close game and I see the Warriors scoring a ton of points here to try and win this game. I like the over here.

T.M. Prediction: 121-115 Warriors.
