Recreation 2 choose, prediction

The Celtics received Recreation 1 by 18 factors, however the line solely moved by half of a degree. There are apparent causes to count on some extent of regression in Recreation 2. The Celtics made 9 extra 3-pointers than the Mavericks in Recreation 1, as an example, and even when Boston is more likely to win the 3-point battle within the sequence, a margin like that is not sustainable. Dereck Vigorous II most likely would not get into foul bother fairly so shortly. Kyrie Irving most likely would not shoot 6 of 19. Misplaced in that logic is that the Celtics did not precisely play an incredible recreation both. It would really feel like they shot the lights out after making seven 3s within the first quarter, however they solely hit 38.1% of their triples within the recreation, beneath their season common. Jayson Tatum barely scored. They missed free throws and did not assault the rim almost as a lot as they might have. In the end, for causes we’ll get into in later picks, the problems Boston posed for Dallas had been greater than simply capturing variance. They’re unsolvable schematic issues. The Celtics are at a significant benefit right here, and a seven-point line is warranted. The Decide: Celtics -7
