As a strong three-and-D wing, Nowell is the perfect fit next to ANT and he should continue to have a big impact tonight provided he gets an extended run again. Why The Mavericks Could Cover The SpreadDallas is one of the most fascinating teams in the league following their acquisition of Kyrie Irving. The Mavericks already sat in a strong position in the West but have now seriously bolstered their NBA Finals chances. Dallas plays at an incredibly slow pace but they remain highly efficient on the offensive end.
That success inside the arc translates into their efficiency numbers as Minnesota shoots the second-highest percentage from two in the league at 58%. While the Timberwolves’ is nothing to write home about, they do rank in the top 10 in both steal and block rate – exemplifying their playmaking potential. The Timberwolves are led by budding star Anthony Edwards. ANT was forced into the clear No. 1 role with Karl-Anthony Towns injured and he has responded well.
