Nothing better than 1 pm basketball. It’s even better with how important this game is. The Bucks are playing for the number 1 seed (or purposefully losing to avoid the Nets early in the playoffs). The Mavs have a 2 game lead on the 4 seed in the West, the last spot that enjoys home court advantage for the first round. Doncic and the Mavs will be looking to extent their lead, and I’m counting on a lot of success behind the arc in this one.
The Mavs make the 10th most threes in the league, and have been hot lately hitting 15.7 a game over their last 3. Few players are better at setting up open shooters than Luka, and no team is better than the Bucks at leaving guys open. That is where Reggie Bullock comes into play. Reggie has been good to us in the past. His role sky rocketed when Tim Hardaway Jr got hurt. In games without Tim, Reggie has played 34.7 minutes a game. He has launched 8.1 threes a game and makes 3.3. Like many high volume deep shooters, he has hit highs and lows, but I can’t ignore the value here in the leagues best matchup. He has hit 3+ in 16/25, 4+ in 12/25, and 5+ in 7/25 since the Hardaway injury. I love this spot for Reggie to climb the ladder.
