NBA Finals betting: Odds, bets for Celtics-Mavericks Game 2 - ESPN

The Boston Celtics look to protect home court tonight and take a 2-0 lead in the NBA Finals, while the Dallas Mavericks try to bounce back from a flat Game 1 and steal a win on the road.

The Celtics were dominant in the first game of the series, setting a new single-game Finals record with seven players making multiple 3-pointers.

I expect Mavericks coach Jason Kidd to make adjustments for Game 2, attacking the Celtics' man-to-man defense with more ball movement instead of ISO and trying to get more players than just Luka involved in the scoring.

Mavericks and Celtics over 214.5 total points (-110). The total was low in Game 1, only 196 combined points, in large part because the Celtics held the Mavericks to only 89 points. While the Celtics are a strong defensive team, this result was an anomaly for both the Mavericks' offense and the Celtics'
