Golden State Warriors is really near to NBA Finals. The team of Steve Kerr has to win one more game against Dallas to be West champion after win Dallas by 100-109. They are really comfortable on the qualifying round with a clear 3-0. Any team on the NBA history can comeback a 3-0 difference. So, if Dallas does not brake the stats, Stephen Curry´s team will be on finals three years later.
Californians won a match that they had it on track on the third quarter. However, this time was not so overwhelming like other times, was the part where Warriors opened an advantage that would be decisive. The third quarter was also the moment where they had the most advantage of the match (64-78). A difference that was not reduced excessively and this allowed them not having a tight end.
This good minutes of the team were led by Stephen Curry, with a really good performance (both in annotation apart and on the distribution). The point ward made 31 points after scoring the half of his field shots (10/20 and 5/10 on triples) and with some good passes and movements of the American player resulted in his team a really good moment of plays. Steph ended the game with 11 assists.
The performance of his teammate Andrew Wiggins was also magnificent. He was the perfect ally of Curry with 27 points and 11 rebounds. He also showed the aggression that so many years we saw him at Minnesota. The forward is knowing that the team needs in each possession.
Also, Kevin Looney is on the best moments of his career. The pivot is a nightmare for Dallas. He made 9 points, 12 rebound and 4 assists. Klay Thompson made 19 points (6/18 on shots) and Jordan Poole scored 10 points, so far of his best annotation version.
But the sad moment of this night was the exhibition of Luka Doncic, completely in vain. He made 40 points and 11 rebounds. This is the eight playoff match of Luka with more than 40 points. With this stat he advances Dirk Nowitzki as the Mavs player who has done more times that number. The great performance of Luka collides with the poor game of the team.
Mavs has now a difficult and almost impossible duel to achieve the comeback. It all starts with a win on the Game 4, something that could allow them to have a real motivation to do the impossible.
