Mavericks Analysis: The guard show

Dallas fans have been enjoying captivating basketball thanks to the pairing of Kyrie Irving and Luka Doncic. The Slovenian maestro showcases exceptional passing skills as he effortlessly penetrates the lane against big men. His shooting form continues as he tops the team in points with 29.8, 8.8 rebounds, and 9.5 assists. Right beside him, we have the 8 time All-Star Kyrie Irving, currently averaging 26.5 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 4.7 assists per game.

Sadly, a big piece of their starting lineup will be missing, as Maxi Kleber is listed as injured for the first game of the series.


Thunder Analysis: Young dogs

Oklahoma has become a youthful side with incredible comradery, as the “young dogs” continue to defy expectations this season. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander brings a plethora of versatility and space to the court. He led the team in scoring with 27.2 points while assisting 5 during the first round. On top of that center Chet Holmgren continues his incredible 2-way play, racking up 15.3 points, 8.8 rebounds, and 2.8 blocks per game.

Our basketball analysis suggests Dallas has a chance to scare the Thunder, however it will require a massive effort from Luka and Kyrie especially from deep. As a strong defensive team we expect Oklahoma to come out with a plan to suppress the superstars, and ultimately come out on top.
