Celtics vs Mavericks NBA Player Props – Kristaps Porzingis Over 1.5 Threes Made (-125)

The former Maverick is still a solid shooter for a big guy, when healthy. Kristaps Porzingis combined for 53 points in the last two showings, but what interests us the most for this player prop, the Latvian superstar made nine triples in those games!

In fact, Porzingis scored 13 three-pointers in the previous four games. He has a favorable matchup against the Mavericks, who allow 24.27 ppg to the opposing centers. The Mavs also allow 1.23 triples to the opposing big guys, and considering Porzingis took 20 shots from beyond the arc over the past four games, I expect him to take at least four or five this time out.

Undoubtedly, Porzingis will be highly motivated to bring his A-game against former employers. A pair of triples for him looks like a quite realistic expectation.

Luka Doncic to record a Double-Double (-139)

For the second player in our Celtics vs Mavericks NBA Player Props, we have one of the best players in the NBA. Talking about motivation, Luka Doncic is always motivated to perform against the best teams in the NBA, and the Celtics are surely one of them. Luka is coming off a triple-double display against the Los Angeles Lakers, his seventh of the campaign.

Doncic averages 33.6 ppg, 8.3 rpg, and 9.2 apg, which means he regularly flirts with triple-doubles. For this pick, we only need him to get 10 boards or dishes. Of course, he will score double-digits, that’s out of the question. Luka recorded a double-double in ten of the last 14 games. He responded to a three-game streak, during which he failed to get a DD, with a triple-double in his last outing.

Kyrie Irving and Tim Hardaway are active and will start. Two of them combine for 43.4 ppg this season, so I believe Doncic is going to be the major dish distributor here. That said, I think Luka will get 10 assists before he grabs 10 boards.
