With betting odds still to be determined, keep a close eye on the Moneyline and Spread as they can give insight into market sentiment and potential outcomes based on recent performances and head-to-head statistics.

Luka Doncic (PG) vs. Jayson Tatum (SF)

Luka Doncic has taken the Mavericks to some of the playoff games with some spectacular averages of 28.8 points, 9.6 rebounds and 8.8 assists per game. This has been a key factor for Dallas since he always gets to the playing field during critical moments. But the 4 turnovers per game suggest some careless attitude that the better teams will capitalize on.

Jayson Tatum has also helped lift Boston with stellar scoring and rebound where he averages 26 points and 10 rebounds per game. The contributions on both ends of the floor are valuable for the Celtics, and he has been making diverse impacts for the team. The lower turnover rate of Tatum also besides the higher percentage of the free throw shooting proves that he is less likely to make fast decisions under pressure.

Doncic will be tasked with creating offense against Tatum, who also rebounds and scores at an elite clip. Both are likely to take over at any given time, thus the contest between the two is relevant to watch. However, Tatum could be more clinical with the ball while Doncic could be more reckless which might determine the outcome in crucial moments. Their level and style of play will provide an exciting subplot that can tip the balance.

Mavericks’ Statistical Insights

The Mavericks have been fairly consistent in the paint in the playoffs averaging 107.9 points on 47.1% field goal shooting. The 37.2% shooting from beyond the arc, which they take close to 34 per game, is definitely another strength that could hurt Boston’s defense. However, poor 72.8% free throw shooting may prove costly for Dallas especially when playing vital games.

Celtics’ Statistical Dominance

Celtics do not offer much more in the scoring department with 111.4 points per game, but the team converts 48% of its field goals. While the overall field goal shooting of 45.1 percent may not sound like much, an 79.7 percent foul shooting may be the difference maker with the game on the line. Disallowing the opposing team to secure the defensive glass at a 33.8 rebound rate also emphasizes Boston’s potential to set the tempo and prevent Dallas from getting second shots.
