Oklahoma City Thunder Analysis: Tough task ahead

A noteworthy detail arising from the defeat in Game 2 was Mark Daigneault’s choice to sideline Josh Giddey at the beginning of the second half. In defense of Giddey, Aaron Wiggins was entrusted with the starting position, given his exceptional offensive contributions in the first game of the series.

Sadly for home fans, throughout the majority of the game OKC found themselves behind on the scoreboard. Despite finally seizing the lead in the 3rd quarter, Dallas swiftly retaliated and managed to maintain a sufficient gap between them and the Thunder. Despite OKC’s relentless efforts to make a comeback via contact basketball, Dallas held on until the end.

 

Dallas Mavericks Analysis: Comfortable at home

Dallas showcased remarkable teamwork, with five players hitting double figures in scoring. Luka Doncic and P.J. Washington led the way with 29 points each. Tim Hardaway Jr. also stepped up with 17 points off the bench, breaking out of a shooting slump that has been plaguing him for most of the year. The Mavericks’ hot shooting was too much for the Thunder, who were suppressed into shooting just 33.3% from 3 point range.

A significant breakthrough resulting from this victory is the improvement in Doncic’s deep shooting, along with Hardaway Jr. It was expected that Doncic would regain his shooting form after struggling throughout the entire postseason. However, Hardaway’s impressive contribution of 17 points off the bench is an extremely positive sign for the Dallas team.

Overall, our NBA analysis suggests Dallas’ momentum will be more than enough to secure a win in their first home game of the series.
