NBA player props expert John Hyslop is here with another player prop pick for Thursday's NBA Playoff action. This time he has his eyes on the Dallas Mavericks vs Phoenix Suns game. He's narrowing in on Dorian Finney-Smith.

Dallas Mavericks vs Phoenix Suns Player Prop Prediction: Will Dorian Finney-Smith Get Buckets in Game 6?

There are two games on the hardwood tonight so obviously, we need action on both. It's the right thing to do. The good part for us east coasters is the fact that the second game of the night starts at 9:30pm ET. That's an extra half hour of sleep people. Kind of a big deal. In that second game, we'll see the Dallas Mavericks fight for their playoff lives against the Phoenix Suns. If they lose it's over. Everyone knows that. With that in mind, if these guys have any pride, they have to come out ready tonight. That's just how winning must-win playoff basketball games works. Lucky for us, I found the key to the whole thing. All of it. Once I realized this, it all became clear to me. You just stumbled onto greatness, my friend. Here is my player prop pick, prediction, and the odds for tonight's game between the Dallas Mavericks and Phoenix Suns.

Dallas Mavericks vs Phoenix Suns Prediction

Barstool is slapping the other books around today like nobody's business. Well, DraftKings is too since they have this exact same number so it's only fair to mention you can get this there. FanDuel is kind of tripping a little bit as they are only offering +114 for this gold but you can't blame them. They're not a charity for christ's sake.

What can I tell you about Dorian Finney-Smith that you don't already know? I follow him on Twitter. Have more followers than he does (nbd). What I find interesting is ESPN has him listed as 6'7" tall but in his Twitter bio he says he's 6'8". I'm just going to say it. I like to bet on guys who will tell you they're an inch taller than they really are. That's just the mark of a beast that can't be tamed. No other way to say it. I kind of believe he could be 6'8".

Here's what else I like about Finney-Smith. He doesn't let the home fans come to a game and not see him show out. It's not in his nature. Some would say he doesn't roll like that. Here's what I mean. In his last four home playoff games, Finney-Smith has hit at least three three-pointers in all of them. In three of those games, he took nine attempts from out there. He wants it.

In this series, Finney-Smith has legit turned into Ray Allen. At home. On the road, not so much but this game is in Dallas. He never disappoints the home fans. In both home games of this series, he's jacked up at least 11 three-point attempts in all of them. In one of those games, he sank four, and in the other, he canned eight. Eight treys! That's crazy! We only need three tonight to get us home and if we're being honest, he might do that in the first quarter. Be sure you have something on Netflix to jump into because this could be done early.
