Why the Mavericks can cover
Guard Luka Doncic is one of the most talented offensive players in the league. Doncic crashes the glass and can also orchestrate the offense with ease. The three-time All-Star is fifth in the NBA in scoring (28) and assists (8.6), while averaging 9.3 rebounds per game. He is also ninth in the league in PER (24.6). The two-time NBA First-Team selection has recorded seven double-doubles over his past 10 games.
On March 11 against the Houston Rockets, Doncic recorded 30 points, 14 rebounds and six assists, while shooting 5-for-11 from 3-point range. He has knocked down at least three 3-pointers in five straight games. In the month of March, Doncic is shooting 36 percent from downtown. The 2018 No. 3 overall pick will look to continue his hot shooting from beyond the arc.
Why the Nets can cover
Forward Kevin Durant’s offensive skill set is remarkable. The 12-time NBA All-Star is a nightmare to defend because of his ability to score from anywhere on the floor. Durant looks to be back in form since returning from a sprained MCL. During the month of March, the two-time NBA champion is averaging 29.8 points, 6.3 rebounds and seven assists per game. In the March 13 win over the New York Knicks, Durant dropped 53 points, six rebounds and nine assists.
Guard Patty Mills is a proven veteran in the backcourt for Brooklyn. He averages 12.5 points and 2.4 assists, while shooting 41 percent from 3-point land. The Saint Mary’s product has scored at least 15 points in 23 games thus far. In his last outing, Mills finished with 15 points and went 5-for-7 from downtown. Center Andre Drummond gives the Nets some size down low. Since joining the Nets, Drummond is putting up 10.7 points and nine rebounds per game. He’s logged four double-doubles over his past 12 games.
