Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Dallas Mavericks Prop Pick: Can Naz Reid Step Up for Timberwolves in Game 4?

The Timberwolves and Mavericks meet for Game 4 of the Western Conference finals tonight from the American Airlines Center in Dallas. The Mavericks have stunned many by jumping out to a 3-0 series lead and are looking to finish the series with a sweep tonight at home.

The Timberwolves have kept each game close and have even been right on the cusp of winning, but they have not found a way to break through and finish off a game yet in this series. They must be aggressive to extend the series and bring it back to Minnesota on Thursday. What should we expect in Game 4 tonight?

Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Dallas Mavericks Prediction

The player I am going with for Game 4 is Timberwolves center, Naz Reid. Reid has had an excellent postseason off the bench as he was also awarded the NBA’s sixth man of the year. He has lived up to the hype in this series, averaging 17.3 points per game during this series off the bench. The reason I love him even more tonight is that no one else has been getting it done for the Timberwolves. Anthony Edwards and Karl-Anthony Towns have been a disappointment in this series, and have yet to make a statement. Naz Reid has been excellent off the bench and has been rewarded with some of his highest minutes in the postseason so far.

He played a postseason-high 32 minutes in Game 2, and tied his previous postseason high of 29 minutes in Game 3. With Karl-Anthony Towns struggling to score and Rudy Gobert looking bad on both ends of the floor, I expect Naz Reid will play 30+ minutes once again tonight.

Naz Reid is set at 12.5 points at even money tonight. He has hit 13 or more points in all three games of this series, going for 15 in Game 1, 23 in Game 2, and 14 in Game 3. He shot a postseason-best 7-for-9 from three in Game 2, and has brought a lot of depth to the scoring for a Minnesota team that has been struggling in this series.

Because of this, I expect Naz Reid to play even more minutes tonight in place of most likely Rudy Gobert, who has been struggling defensively after being named the defensive player of the year. Look for Naz to have a big role once again in Game 4 and hit over 12.5 points for the fourth time in the fourth game of this series.
