The Dallas Mavericks came so close to stealing Game 2 on the road before ultimately blowing a 19-point lead. The Warriors earned a hard-fought 126-117 victory and grabbed a crucial 2-0 series lead. Superstar Luka Doncic will now look to bounce back with a much-needed home win on Sunday night.

The Mavericks have the fans in their corner this time and enter Game 3 as 3-point favorites at the American Airlines Center, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. Bettors can get in on the action in a variety of ways, though, so here's a look at three of the best player props to target.

Warriors vs Mavericks Player Props Game 3

1. Reggie Bullock - Points: Over 11.5 (+102)

Reggie Bullock's three-point prop was listed in this article for Game 2 and he ended up cashing it by going 6-for-10 from beyond the arc. Those odds have changed drastically for this contest, so shifting gears to his points prop makes a ton of sense. Bullock has scored at least 12 points in three of his last four games and is seeing wide-open shots from the perimeter. It's worth noting that Bullock is also averaging 40 minutes played over the first two games of this series. He has become one of Doncic's top targets, so trust Bullock to keep balling out.

2. Klay Thompson - Assists: Over 2.5 (-112)

The lack of three-point shooting from Klay Thompson during this series has led to increased opportunities to rack up assists. The 32-year-old has only attempted eight shots from beyond the arc and is driving to the rim to kick out the ball, instead. Thompson has posted at least 3 assists in each of his last two games and six of his last nine games overall. There's little reason to believe his strategy will change heading into Game 3, especially since Dallas has allowed Golden State to log a whopping 57 assists through two games. Thompson has a chance to cash this over before the fourth quarter even starts.

3. Spencer Dinwiddie - Points + Rebounds + Assists: Under 16.5 (-115)

Spencer Dinwiddie is stuck behind two of Dallas' best players on the depth chart in Luka Doncic and Jalen Brunson. His playing time is decreasing as the postseason roll on considering he hasn't tallied more than 25 minutes played since Game 2 against the Phoenix Suns (May 4). Dinwiddie looked lost in Game 2, scoring only 4 points (2-for-6 shooting) to go along with 1 rebound and 4 assists. It was also the fifth time in his last nine games that he cashed the under on this prop bet. The Warriors have the depth to defend Dinwidde even with their big stars on the bench, so there isn't much upside here.
