Mavericks (+6) $1.90

The Suns vs Mavericks series returns to Phoenix tied at 2-2.

Despite leaning heavily on Luka during games 1 & 2 (to no avail), it’s been the Mavs role players who have revived their conference finals bid.

Finney-Smith came up huge in Game 4, hitting 8/13 from deep, while Brunson, Kleber, Bullock, and even Bertans steeping up to assist Luka on the offensive end.

On the other side of the court, Chris Paul showed his age for the first time this season, managing just 17 points across the last two games, while fouling out in game 4.

Everyone thought the Mavs were going to be a one-man show this series, though ironically Booker has been that man for the Suns, hitting 35-4-7 in a losing side last time out.

It’s hard to see the Suns not making a few adjustments ahead of Game 5, along with CP3 rediscovering his range, though now the Mavs have found their shooting confidence I can’t see them getting blown out of the water here.

I’m backing this contest to be decided in the final one or two possessions of the game, with the Mavs +6 point advantage at the line looking like money!
