(ANSA) – ROME, MAY 25 – The Dallas Mavericks avoided a humiliating coat in the Western Conference final in the NBA with the Golden State Warriors, winning 119 to 109 at home and bringing the series to 3-1 for rivals. Driven by Luka Doncic, the Mavericks dominated especially in the second and third quarters, gaining an advantage of almost thirty points that the Warriors tried to reduce only in the last 12 ‘but were unable to complete the comeback.
Too different motivations between the two teams, with Dallas wanting to give a signal of pride and Golden State calm for the wide advantage and aware of its strength.
Furthermore, in the history of the NBA, never a team beaten in the first three games has managed to win the last four of a series of playoffs. The final act that will decide the finalist for the ring will take place tomorrow in California. The leader of the match was Doncic himself, with 30 points, 14 rebounds and nine assists, but the Slovenian inspired the redemption of the whole team, very precise in shooting and decisive in defense. Warriors star Stephen Curry (20 points, 8 assists), on the other hand, did not give himself a damn, taking a breath in the life of Game-5.
In the other challenge, the Eastern Conference final between Celtics and Heat is tied at 2-2 and tonight it’s game-5 in Miami.
