Reggie Bullock 16.5 points + rebounds + assists (-108)
|Prop||Under 16.5 PRA|
|Matchup||Mavericks vs. Suns|
|Time||10:30 p.m. ET|
In his first season with the Mavericks, Reggie Bullock proved to be a vital piece of the puzzle. Dallas was able to maximize his strengths as a “three and D” specialist, and Bullock is now playing major minutes as a starter in the playoffs.
While the North Carolina product’s defensive abilities will keep him on the floor this series, I’m not loving the outlook for his offensive production.
Bullock garnered 73% of his regular-season points from 3-pointers (and 80% in round 1 against the Jazz). The Suns have been ruthless against long distance shooters this season, allowing the third-lowest percentage from beyond the arc and the third lowest point per possession against spot up shooters.
In 74 minutes against the Suns this season, Bullock only managed 11 points on 1-of-9 shooting from 3-point range.
Defensively, I expect Bullock to spend most of his floor time guarding either Chris Paul or Devin Booker. This should limit his rebounding potential against a Suns team that was better than league average in opposing wing rebounding during the regular season.
I have Bullock’s PRA projected at 13 for Game 1.
Pick: Reggie Bullock Under 16.5 PTS + REB + AST (-108)
