When you’re playing an opponent for the fifth time in a series, even the best coaches will run out of adjustments to make. With the Warriors defensively, we’ve seen them throw the book at Luka Doncic, whether it be in the form of double teams or even a matchup zone defense.

One thing that won’t change is all the attention Doncic commands. And in turn, Reggie Bullock will continue to be left wide open on the perimeter.

Bullock’s offensive game is the 3-pointer. Of his 43 shot attempts this series, 37 have been from beyond the arc. And on every single one of those 3-point attempts this series, Bullock has been open (defined as the closest defender being at least four feet away from him). In fact, he’s been “wide open” on 25 of those attempts (at least a six-foot distance).

We saw the same thing in the regular season against Golden State, where the Warriors left Bullock open on 80% of his 3-pointers. Compared to the 70% of open looks he saw against other opponents, it’s very clear that Golden State is OK with Bullock firing away.

Plus, the volume is there. Bullock’s 9.3 3-point attempts per 40 minutes against the Warriors this season exceeds the 8.3 per 40 he averaged over the regular season.  So he’s not only getting great looks, but the volume as well.

With Bullock set for another monster workload, I have the sharpshooter projected at 13 points tonight.

Pick: Reggie Bullock Over 10.5 Points (-114); playable up to -130. Over 2.5 3-Pointers Made also playable up to -150.
