Prop Pick

What’s the reason the Dallas Mavericks made it all the way to the 2024 NBA Final? Two words: Luka Doncic. This guy has been brilliant throughout the season, but it’s the 2024 NBA Playoffs that really saw him switch to the top gear.

The Slovenian scored a total of 162 points in the five games of the Western Conference Finals against the NBA’s best defense, the Minnesota Timberwolves. He also recorded two triple-doubles and one double-double.

The Boston Celtics are aware of the Doncic danger, which is why you can bet that they’ll do all in their power to stop him. Further, Doncic might decide to focus more on assists rather than scoring, and that’s why our prediction is that he won’t go over 30 in Game 1.

And even if he does score 30 points or more, we still don’t think he’s going to outscore Jayson Tatum. Boston’s highest-scoring player is someone who tends to show up in big games, especially when they’re played at TD Garden.
