Maxi Kleber 1+ 3PM/Dorian Finney-Smith 1+ Steal (-110) (Bet $110 to Win $100)

*Odds Available at DraftKings at Time of Publishing*

Maxi Kleber is someone I really like going into this game. In game 1. The Mavericks ran an extremely tight 9-man rotation, and with Luka Doncic once again like to miss, I expect similar minutes.  Kleber played more minutes than Powell and I expect that trend to continue. Kleber allows you to space the floor and hopefully open up the paint more, allowing their two drive-first guards to create around the rim. Kleber went 2-5 from 3, scoring 10 points in his 26 minutes last game, I also don't mind his over 1.5 3PM at + money. 

Dorian Finney-Smith is one of those underrated defenders that may not always produce on the stat sheet, but will almost always make an impact on the game. He's averaging 1.1 STL per game this season and grabbed 1 steal and 2 blocks in game 1 of the series, playing 44 total minutes. Finney-Smith's defensive presence is so necessary that he will likely continue to see this 40+ minutes workload, with foul trouble really being his biggest obstacle. His steals + blocks are also listed at o1.5 -120, which also provides pretty good value.

Maxi Kleber 1+ 3PM/Dorian Finney-Smith 3+ 1Q Points -120 (Bet $120 to Win $100)

*Odds Available at DraftKings at Time of Publishing*

Not only do I expect DFS to impress on the offensive side of the ball, but I think he continues to thrive on offense. In game 1, he scored 6 first quarter points going 2-2 from beyond the arc. In 14 career playoff games he's averaging 3.0 1Q points, and I expect this team to rely on their veteran shooter, coming off shooting 40% from 3 this year. Deciding between DFS and Bullock will be tough, Dallas will be forced to make outside shots and those are the two that should take care of business.
