It is time to go back to an old friend. Reggie Bullock has been great to us since Tim Hardaway’s injury expanded his role, and I like him to make us even more cash today.
Firstly, I like that Reggie has hit 3 in every game this series. He’s got a safe floor to depend on. He also has not seen less than 44 minutes yet so he’s out there all game just waiting to launch from deep. There are two specific factors that have me more excited about this game rather than the rest of the series. The first is Luka’s return (his second game back), the second is it is a home game. Reggie has played 15 games with Luka in, Tim out, and at home this season. In those 15, he is averaging 3.8 made threes. He’s hit 3+ in 10/15, 4+ in 10/15, and 5+ in 7/15.
The Jazz have showed little interest in defending the arc this series. Dallas is averaging 16 makes from distance per game this series, and will only get more deadly with Luka drawing the defense into the paint. This is a great opportunity for Reggie to climb the ladder for us yet again.
