Finney-Smith had 18 points (7-13 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 0-1 FT), 10 rebounds and two assists in Sunday's Game 7 loss to the Clippers.
While the scoring numbers don't jump off the page, Finney-Smith closed out an impressive two-way series in which he notched three double-digit scoring games and five games with multiple made three-pointers. Fantasy-wise, Finney-Smith didn't offer any defensive production Sunday, but he racked up seven steals across Games 5 and 6. In season-long formats, the rangy forward is still more of a deeper-leagues target, but he's improved his three-point percentage in five consecutive seasons, topping out at 39.4 percent in 2020-21 (career-high 2.0 3PM/G).
Finney-Smith produced eight points (2-9 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five steals, four rebounds, two assists and one block in 40 minutes during Wednesday's 105-100 victory over the Clippers.
Despite scoring just eight points, Finney-Smith still managed to play a major role in the victory, racking up six combined steals and blocks. He continues to be the ultimate glue guy for the Mavericks, often doing all the little things on both ends of the floor. Things now head back to Dallas where the home team will look to secure its first win of the series.
Finney-Smith produced 18 points (7-9 FG, 4-5 3Pt), five rebounds, two assists and a steal across 37 minutes in Saturday's 113-103 win over the Clippers.
When opposing defenses line up against the Mavericks, they spend a lot of time figuring out how to contain Luka Doncic, but when performances like Finney-Smith's pop up in the supporting cast, they are difficult to account for. In his fifth season with Dallas, Finney-Smith is having a career year in almost every category, but the most significant jump comes from his three-point attempts, which average five shots per game. He's barely completing 40 percent of them, but Saturday's exhibit will bolster that percentage.
Finney-Smith totaled 15 points (6-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt), four rebounds and one assist in 28 minutes during Sunday's 136-121 loss to the Timberwolves.
Finney-Smith has been a great defender for the Mavericks this season, but his offense production solely relies upon his ability to hit open threes. Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis demand most of the defense's attention so Finney-Smith gets left in the corner a ton. The 29-year-old is shooting a career best 39.4 percent from three this season, including a scalding 66.7 percent over his last three games.
Finney-Smith registered 17 points (6-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-4 FT), eight rebound and three assists across 39 minutes during Thursday's 113-109 win over the Nets.
Since a seven-point performance, Finney-Smith has topped double figures in scoring 10 times over his last 11 outings. On top of his scoring, Finney-Smith has also contributed in the rebounding department, averaging 5.5 boards in that span while also registering at least one steal in seven games.
Finney-Smith ended with just three points (1-7 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, four assists and two steals in 35 minutes during Sunday's 111-99 loss to the Kings.
Finney-Smith finally came back to earth after putting together arguably the best two-week stretch of his career. The Mavericks are leaning heavily on Finney-Smith and so while this was obviously a disappointment, his opportunity alone certainly lends itself to 12-team value.

Finney-Smith has been dealing with a sore lower leg for the last few games, but he's been able to play through the issue.

The three-and-D forward has averaged 14.3 points, 5.6 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 3.3 made three-pointers over his last seven contests.

Finney-Smith (lower leg) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Warriors, Tim MacMahon of ESPN reports.
All five of the Mavs' regular starters are either doubtful or questionable, so it's very possible we could see a skeleton crew Tuesday on the second half of a back-to-back. Finney-Smith played through the sore lower leg Monday night in Sacramento, finishing with 10 points, seven boards, two steals, a block and two three-pointers in 33 minutes. He's now hit multiple three-pointers in six straight games.

Finney-Smith is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Kings due to a sore left lower leg, Tim MacMahon of ESPN reports.
The entire Mavericks' starting five is now listed as questionable, so it's very possible the team is looking to get its regulars some rest on the front end of a back-to-back set against an inferior opponent. As usual, Finney-Smith has carried a heavy workload of late, averaging 34.8 minutes per contest over his last five appearances. In Saturday's win over the Lakers, he went for 21 points (4-7 3Pt), seven rebounds and two assists in 32 minutes.
Finney-Smith produced 21 points (8-13 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT) and seven rebounds Saturday in a 108-93 victory over the Lakers.
Finney-Smith continued his recent run of strong play, finishing with double-digit scoring for the fifth straight contest. That is his longest such streak of the season; in fact, Finney-Smith hadn't accomplished the feat in more than two consecutive games prior to the past week. Over his past five games, the forward is averaging 15.4 points, 4.8 boards and 3.6 three-pointers per contest.
Finney-Smith recorded 10 points (4-5 FG, 2-3 3Pt), three rebounds, three steals and two assists across 37 minutes in Thursday's 115-110 win over the Lakers.
After pulling a disappearing act for most of the third quarter, Finney-Smith reported immediately after Kristaps Porzingis' injury and rattled off a field goal, a three-pointer and two steals throughout the remainder of the game. The severity of Porzingis' injury is unclear at this point, but Finney-Smith's 6-foot-7, 220-pound frame will come in handy as a rebound source if their star center is out for an extended period.
Finney-Smith totaled 22 points (8-11 FG, 6-8 3Pt), four rebounds, one assist and one block in 35 minutes during Sunday's 121-107 loss to the Kings.
On what was a disappointing night for the Mavericks, Finney-Smith was one of the few bright spots. Despite a consistent role, he has been unable to take the next step this season. He is a solid enough addition to any fantasy squad but the upside is basically zero and streaming his position is likely to garner more significant production.
Finney-Smith posted 12 points (5-10 FG, 2-7 3Pt), 11 rebounds, one assist and one steal across 35 minutes of Monday's loss to the 76ers.
Finney-Smith has grabbed double-digit rebounds just twice this season and both occasions have come within the last three games. With the Mavs playing without Kristaps Porzingis (rest), Finney-Smith failed to take advantage of any extra scoring opportunities though his 12 points snapped a streak of three straight contests scoring in single-digits.
