Golden State defeats the Mavs for the second time

Golden State is halfway to another NBA Finals, which would be the Warriors’ sixth in eight seasons.

The California franchise leads 2-0 against Dallas in the Western Conference final after winning 126-117 Friday in San Francisco.

Crowned in 2015, 2017 and 2018, unfortunate finalists in 2016 and 2019 but deprived of the play-off in 2020 and 2021, the Warriors have come a long way in this Act II. Led 72-58 at halftime, they picked up the score thanks to a third quarter won 25-13 before taking control in the fourth quarter (43-32).

Dallas was up to 16 lengths ahead in the first quarter. But Stephen Curry’s Warriors (32 points, 6/10 to 3 points) then managed to limit the impact of Mavericks star leader Luka Doncic: he finished with 42 points, but 18 were registered in the first quarter and 24 in the first half.
