Market Report for Friday, May 20th

Dallas Mavericks at Golden State Warriors (-6.5, 214)

Game 2: Warriors lead 1-0

There are quite a few people who watched Golden State’s 112-87 victory on Wednesday who are ready to write the eulogy for the Dallas Mavericks, but I am not one of those people. One game is not enough to get a read on how a series plays out, and we just need to look back on Boston’s victory last night for a perfect example of that. There were some very concerning aspects of Dallas’ loss that should make Mavericks backers uneasy, but there was also plenty to build on that could allow them to be much more competitive tonight.
