NBA Props for Tonight (8/6)

Mavs Forward/Center Kristaps Porzingis

Porzingis faces a Clippers team still without Montrezl Harrell, and Ivica Zubac has no business guarding KP outside of the paint.

Porzingis has gone 5-for-13 (38.4%) in his first two games from deep, and the one game that he didn't go over his point total, he went 0-for-7 from three and fouled out early in the fourth with 22 points, one bucket short of his 23.5 line.

He's averaged 30.3 points and 10.3 rebounds through three games, going for 30 twice.

Meanwhile, the Clippers are allowing the sixth-highest three-point percentage in the bubble (37.8%), and the third-most rebounds to centers on the season (16.32).

That combination gives Porzingis advantages on the inside and outside, something he needs versus the Clippers. 

  • Post-All-Star break, Porzingis is averaging 24.8 points in 12 games
  • When Porzingis played 30-39 minutes in 2019-20, he averaged 21.3 points per game
  • Porzingis has recorded 11 trips to the free-throw line in all three seeding games -- the Clippers rank 11th of 22 teams with 24.7 fouls per game

In two meetings with the Clippers, he's shot 8-for-30 (26.6%) from the field, and in his last three games in the bubble, he's gone 29-for-64 (45.3%). From three, KP was on fire going 5-for-11 (45.4.%) in the first two games, before putting up a dud versus Sacramento (0/7).
