Game 5 of the NBA Finals is scheduled for Monday, with the hometown Boston Celtics looking to finish the series, while the Dallas Mavericks will look to extend the series with a second straight win.

Season series

Historically, the Celtics have the advantage of having won 46 of the club’s 86 meetings. Both this season and last season, the Celtics swept the two-game season series.

This is the first time the clubs will meet in the postseason, as the Celtics have their eyes on an NBA-best 18th championship banner, while the Mavericks are making just their third trip to the Finals after sharing the two previous chances .

Dallas Mavericks

In Game 4, the Mavericks finally showed up to play in a way that most pundits expected them to enter the series. They moved the ball more, attacked the rim and both superstars performed very well.

Luka Doncic was on his best behavior by not responding to calls he didn’t like and undoubtedly had his best defensive game of the series. Even though they know this is an elimination game, they have the advantage of being able to play freely and if by chance they can get the win, all the pressure will shift on the Celtics.

Mavericks Stats

Dallas ranked eighth offensively (117.0) and 18th in defensive rating (114.9) with a net differential of plus +2.1, which ranked 15th overall.

So far in the playoffs, Dallas ranks seventh offensively (113.9) and fifth defensively (110.3) with a net differential of plus +3.6 in fifth place.

The Mavericks are performing well against the spread with a 60-42-1 record in 103 games this season.

Mavericks injury report

To summarize the injury report…

  • Luka Doncic, PG (probably – chest)

Boston Celtics

Despite the loss in Game 4, the Celtics still have all the advantages and have three games if necessary to achieve their goal of a league-leading 18th place.

In every series that reached the finals, Boston had an off game, but the Dallas game was their worst performance of the postseason, leading to coach Joe Mazzulla pulling his starters and raising the white flag in the third quarter.

Celtics Stats

Boston ranked first offensively (122.2) and was second defensively (110.6), while recording a net differential of plus +111.7, which also ranked first overall.

Throughout the postseason, the Celtics rank fifth offensively (116.7) and third defensively (108.7) with a net differential of plus +8.0 which ranks first overall rankings.

In terms of the Celtics’ performance against the spread, they offer a 50-44-6 record over 100 games.

Celtics injury report

To summarize the injury report…

  • Kristaps Porzingis, PF (doubtful calf)

Free Dallas Mavericks vs. Boston Celtics NBA Prediction:

Boston was on the verge of closing out the series and posting one of the best postseason records in their franchise history. Then Game 4 happened and now they enter this game with a negative differential for the series.

The question is whether the Mavericks made the adjustments to keep winning or if it was just a lucky game in which the Celtics didn’t play.

Part of the answer may depend on whether Porzingis plays, as his absence opens up the paint and driving lanes that don’t exist when he plays. Highlighting how much Kristaps is missed, the Mavs outscored the Celts 60 to 26 in the paint and outscored them 52 to 31 on the glass.

I’m not too confident since the team I sided with was on the losing side. For that reason I choose the Celtics to end it with a wink; that I hope for a return trip to Dallas.
