Already in the first quarter Luca Doncic scored almost the entire first game, and Dallas went down to the break with a promising 14-point lead, as opposed to the first encounter where they struggled and were defeated, but Golden State took control of the game in the third quarter and rained 43 points in the final 12 minutes to win 117: 126 and go up to 0: 2 in the Western Conference Finals Series.

After succumbing to the defense of Andrew Wiggins in the previous game, Doncic opened this time with 18 points in the first quarter, with Jaylen Branson scoring eight of the Mavericks' first 14 of the game en route to an early 16-point lead.
But the Warriors had an X Factor named Kwon Looney, who scored a career-high 21 points playoffs and completed a double-double with 12 rebounds, while Steph Kerry introduced another typical shooting evening that included six threes, so the host mimicked a record 19-point deficit and recorded a comeback from minus 15 and above to win the game Playoff for the 12th time in the Steve Kerr era.
As in the previous series against Phoenix, Dallas will return home 2-0 behind with the rival two wins away from returning to the Finals Series after a three-year absence.

Kerry finished the game with 32 points and eight rebounds, Jordan Paul contributed 23 points from the bench, Wiggins added 16 and Clay Thompson scored 15. The Warriors scored 14 of 28 for three and delivered 33 assists in a wonderful offensive evening.
Doncic scored 42 alongside eight assists and three steals, with great percentages from the field: 7 from 13 for two, 5 from 10 for three and also 13 from 15 from the penalty line.
Branson scored 31 points with five threes of his own, and Reggie Bullock finished with 21. All of that still wasn’t enough for Dallas, who will have to find a way to rise even higher in the next two games so her great playoff journey doesn’t come to an end.
