Prop Pick

The man the Dallas Mavericks need to thank for getting to the 2024 Western Conference Finals is Luka Doncic. He’s been brilliant throughout the season, but especially since the start of the Playoffs.

Not only has he been scoring just under 30 points per average in the 2024 postseason, but he’s also been great when it comes to rebounds and assists. In fact, he recorded a double-double in 10 of the 12 games of the Playoffs his team’s played so far.

Further, on four occasions, we saw him get a triple-double. Three of those happened in the previous three games. Can he do it again? We think he’ll have to if he wants his team to get a lead in the series.
