Wagering On NBA Playoffs - Ri-Dirkulous

Posted by Brian Mulligan on 2/6/2014 9:43:58 PM

When Dirk Nowitzki won the MVP a few years ago, he failed to get the job done in the post season. But online hoop sports bet enthusiasts had better take notice that this year’s version of Dirk is hungrier, stronger and more motivated than ever.

Despite missing two thirds of his shots in the Saturday night game, Nowitzki is still shooting 56% from the floor against the Oklahoma Thunder and is a huge reason why Dallas is up 3-1 in the series and trying to shut the door Wednesday in Dallas.

He is doing it in a variety of ways. He’s falling away, playing the pick and roll with Jason Kidd to perfection and he is posting up.

In the Monday win, Dirk was tremendous down the stretch hitting wild shot after wild shot and accounting for 40 points.

Nowitzki and only three players in online casino games NBA history have averaged more than 25 points and 10 rebounds in the playoffs. Only Nowitzki and the great Kareem Abjul-Jabbar have managed four consecutive 30 point 15 rebound games in the playoffs. Additionally, Nowitzki is the only player in NBA history to get over 100 blocks and 150 three pointers in a single season.

Despite the fact that Dallas got to the Finals and had a 2-1 lead on Miami a few seasons back this is by far their best and most potent team.

Besides Dirk, Kidd is playing at a very high level. He’s hitting the long-range shot and playing tough aggressive defense on the lightning quick Russell Westbrook.

Shawn Marion did not have a good sports betting bonus offensive game on Monday, but he did a great job against Kevin Durant holding him to 9 for 22 shooting from the floor and forcing 9 turnovers, a career high for Durant.

One of the keys to Dallas on Monday was the fact that despite getting beat by 15 off the glass, the Mavericks found a way to win.

As for Oklahoma Monday, they let Dallas go on a 17-2 run in the last 5 minutes of the game to force overtime.

They got absolutely nothing going to the basket in that time or in the OT.

Kevin Durant missed his final 6 shots, all jumpers, had the ball taken from him a number of times and was so depressed he didn’t even speak with his mother or grandmother after the game.

Only 8 teams in the NBA in history have come back and win after being down 3-1 and only 2 teams in history have made that comeback without the benefit on the home-court advantage.

One was the great Houston Rockets squad led by Akeem Olajuwon and the legendary 1968 Boston Celtics.

The addition of Tyson Chandler has been huge for Dallas this year. He is vocal on defense and does not let his teammates get down or get confused.

The recipe for victory Wednesday will go hand and hand with the 25 turnovers Dallas forced on Monday.

If they do that kind of a job, and can contain Durant and James Harden off the pine, look for them to send Oklahoma fishing by covering the 6 and half or 7-point number.
