Dallas Mavericks vs. Boston Celtics Prop Pick: Can Derrick Jones Jr. Put Up Points in NBA Finals Game 5?

Standing in their way is a hungry and desperate Dallas Mavericks team.

MAVERICKS VS. CELTICS GAME 5 DATE, TIME, AND WHERE TO WATCH

  • Date: June 17, 2024

DALLAS MAVERICKS VS. BOSTON CELTICS GAME 5 PREDICTION

Dallas showed a fight in Game 4 as they blew out Boston to force tonight’s game.

The question becomes, can the Mavericks continue to play with that level of energy tonight?

The last thing that Boston wants is for this series to go back to the Lone Star State.

The plot thickens if the Mavs can find a way to steal this game tonight.

It is worth noting that no team in NBA history has ever come back from a 3-0 deficit in a playoff series.

Luka Doncic has been the star of the playoffs for the Mavs. The Slovenian superstar leads the team with 28.9 points. 9.3 rebounds and 8.2 assists.

Kyrie Irving has added 22.5 points and 5.0 playoff assists.

Dereck Lively II has enjoyed a great playoff run with 8.1 points and 7.6 rebounds.

Jayson Tatum has continued his superstar playoff run. Tatum leads the squad with 24.7 points, 9.8 rebounds and 6.0 assists.

Jaylen Brown remains the favorite to win finals MVP. Brown has averaged 24.1 points and 5.8 rebounds.

Derrick White has added 16.9 points and 4.2 assists.

Let’s dive into my prop best bet.

DALLAS MAVERICKS VS. BOSTON CELTICS GAME 5 Prop Pick

This line is too low.

The total for Derrick Jones Jr. has been 9.5/10.5 for most of the postseason.

While he has gone under this number in four of his last five games, it has not been due to a lack of volume.

Jones did have his minutes cut in Game 3, logging a playoff-low 16 minutes, but he played 17 minutes in Game 4.

Jones would have played 25+ minutes if it was not for the blowout.

This number favors Jones, as he will have plenty of open looks tonight.
