Chris Paul is one of the best passers in the history of the NBA. Paul led the NBA in assists per game at 10.8 assists per game this season. He has struggled in this category in the last 5 games as he has failed to eclipse this 8.5 number in 5 straight. However, Paul had double digit assists in 5 straight games before this streak. Also, Paul averaged 13 assists per game this regular season against the Mavericks.
Chris Paul is coming off his worst game of the series and potentially the worst game of the postseason thus far as he fouled out early in the second half. Chris Paul will have a chip on his shoulder coming into tonight’s pivotal matchup and we believe Paul will finish with a double-double.

Jalen Brunson has been nothing short of a star in the playoffs this year. However, his production is slowly dipping as Luka has returned to full health. Brunson is averaging just 17 points per game this series against the stellar defense of the Suns. Also, Brunson’s points per game drop to a mere 11 when playing in Phoenix this series.
We believe the defensive intensity will be too much for Brunson and the Mavericks. Look for Jalen Brunson to go under 18.5 points tonight in the pivotal game 5 matchup of Western Conference heavyweights.
