Jalen Brunson – Jalen gets to the free throw line much more when he plays big minutes, Luka is out…
Dorian Finney-Smith – see above regarding DFS and rebounds.
JJJ – He’s averaging 26 PPG the past two games. I think over 17.5 is a safe pick
Dillon Brooks – He struggles to get over 20 when multiple defenders are thrown at him. I think we will see DFS, Bullock, Brown, Frank on him.
Maxi – He’s only had 2+ assists in two games this season
Maxi Kleber – With Luka out the points need to come from somewhere. Expect Maxi to put up at least 11.
Jalen Brunson – Brunson has to be the star tonight, otherwise it’s probably a guaranteed loss. Expect Jalen to be most of the offense.
Steven Adams – Steven Adams isn’t an offensive juggernaut but Centers play well against the Mavericks. I’d be surprised if he didn’t get at least 7 points tonight.
