Dallas Mavericks vs. Golden State Warriors Best NBA First Basket Props Odds & Picks

It was Dwight Powell vs. Kevon Looney in Game 3 for the tip-off with Looney helping the Mavericks gain the first possession. Neither of these guys has been particularly good at winning the tip-off — Powell is now just 6-for-12, and Looney is 2-for-8. Powell has the 2-1 advantage in the series and you need to play the percentages in this instance.

Dallas has been above average by hitting  55% of their game’s first baskets. With Dallas’ better chances of gaining the first possession and better first basket percentage, there’s a great chance someone on the Mavericks is getting the first points.

Luka Doncic comes into this game having made six of the last 13 first baskets for the Mavericks, including Game 7 in the last round, Game 2, and Game 3 of this series. He leads the team by attempting the first field goal in 31% of their games. With Luka chucking 46 shots in the last two games, there’s no doubt he wants to get the Mavs on the board.
