Dallas Mavericks vs Golden State Warriors: Picks & Predictions 5/18/2022

May 18, 2022


Luka Doncic vs Stephen Curry. Jalen Brunson vs Klay Thompson. Jordan Poole vs Spencer Dinwiddie. That’s part of the menu offered by the Western Conference finals. Way better than any five star restaurant.


After eliminating the Utah Jazz (4-2) and the Phoenix Suns (4-1), the Dallas Mavericks will play their first WCF since 2011. The Golden State Warriors, who eliminated the Denver Nuggets (4-1) and the Memphis Grizzlies (4-2), will play their sixth WCF over the last eight years.


Doncic had a great series against the Suns, averaging 32.6 points per game. On the other hand, Curry averaged 26 points per game against the Grizzlies. That’s great news considering both superstars dealt with an injury early in the postseason.


In the regular season, these two collided four times, Dallas ended up with a 3-1 lead. Nevertheless, the Warriors were missing key players in pretty much every game. Draymond Green didn’t play in the last three, while Klay Thompson missed two of the first three.


For the WCF, Tim Hardaway Jr. (Dallas) and Gary Payton II (Golden State) are the only ones who won’t see any action. Otto Porter Jr. (Golden State) is expected to return for Game 1, while Andre Iguodala (Golden State) is expected to return at some point during the series.


The Warriors, who own a 37-10 record when playing at Chase Center, are the NBA betting favorites by five points. Golden State is 8-0 straight up in its last eight games at home. However, things are completely different when it comes to the spread while facing Dallas. The Warriors are 1-6 against the spread in their last seven games when playing at Chase Center against the Mavericks.


Warriors’ head coach Steve Kerr, who’s returning after missing the last three games against Memphis due to COVID-19, isn’t sure about Golden State’s favoritism.


“Every opponent at this stage is going to pose a huge threat because only the best teams are left. It’s all about figuring it out,” Kerr said.


Last but not least, you can expect fireworks, especially if both rosters manage to stay healthy. The total has gone over in eight of Dallas’ last 11 games on the road. The total for Game 1 is set at 214½ points.
