Thunder vs Mavericks Free Pick May 3, 2012

May 02, 2012

The Oklahoma City Thunder will look to go up 3-0 on May 3 when they face the Dallas Mavericks in game three of their western conference quarterfinal series. The Thunder took the first two games on their home court and will look to take game three on the road. Russell Westbrook has been the leader of the Thunder thus far in the series. The young point guard is running the team, as top scorer Kevin Durant has had difficulties with his shot the first two games against the Mavericks. Westbrook has scored 28 and 29 points in each of the first two games in the series.

The Mavericks have keyed on Durant and Shawn Marion the defensive ace for Dallas, has held Durant to just 15 of 44 shooting in the first two games. Westbrook however, is taking on the likes of Jason Terry, Delonte West and Jason Kidd and getting the best of all three.

Veteran guard Derek Fisher also has helped off the bench in the second game, as James Harden and Durant only combined to hit 7 of their 24 field goals. The Mavericks will look to All Star forward Dirk Nowitzki to get back on his game and will have to see an improvement offensively from both Terry and Kidd. Big man Brendan Haywood has been lost in this series and he will have to step forward.

The first two games of the series were decided by a total of 4 points and this game should be no different. The teams match up well against one another and having played against each other on five occasions this season, the teams are familiar with the other’s tendencies.

The line opened with the Mavericks as an early 3-point favorite at home, but has come back to 1 ½ points. The total for halftime is 100 ½ and for the game is 194 ½. Take the Mavericks in this game ATS and the total to end OVER.
