Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals matchup is tonight after the Dallas Mavericks pulled off the road Game 1 victory against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

For today’s Underdog Fantasy NBA picks, I’m going back to the well with one of the Timberwolves leading scorers after he struggled in Game 1 and focusing on an elite scoring guard for the Mavericks.




Underdog NBA Pick: Karl-Anthony Towns Higher Than 21.5 Points

It was a tough Game 1 for Towns who shot just 6-of-20 from the floor and 2-of-9 from three-point range, as he finished with just 16 points. With Game 1 in the books, I’m not shying away as Towns is just too good of a scorer for him to consistently struggle in this matchup and given what is at stake here with the Timberwolves needing to tie up the series here at home.

With his point projection set at 21.5, we have to be encouraged by the fact that Towns took 20 shots and nine three-pointers as he shot 50% from the floor and 40% from three this season. Even a marginal improvement shooting the basketball tonight should allow for us to hit the mark.




Underdog NBA Pick: Kyrie Irving Higher Than 5.5 1Q Points 

Dallas fell behind in the first quarter of Game 1, but it wasn’t because of Kyrie Irving, as the Mavericks guard scored 13 points in the first quarter, playing nearly the entire 12 minutes. We now look at Game 2 where Irving’s first quarter point projection is set at just 5.5.

We know the Timberwolves defense is going to be focusing on shutting down the two guards for Dallas here, but Irving is an elite scorer that can also be deadly from three-point range having shot over 40% in each of the first two series of the playoffs. I’m looking for Irving to shoulder the load here again for the Mavericks as he and Luka Doncic look to pull off the Game 2 upset.
