Boston C Kristaps Porzingis exited Sunday’s victory with a right leg injury and is expected to play in Game Three. These two teams combined to shoot 16-for-65 from long distance, so positive regression could certainly lead to an over in this matchup. The stronger play is on the Mavericks to win at home. Final Score Prediction, Dallas Mavericks win 111-104.
