A possible first-round matchup between the Dallas Mavericks and the Golden State Warriors is very intriguing. Both teams are capable of scoring a lot of points. Both teams have three-point capability. However, one of those teams has a little bit more.
As was shown tonight, the Warriors are on a whole other level when it comes to playing basketball. Dallas played good basketball. Golden State played great basketball. Dallas hit three pointers. The Warriors hit more. All in all, it adds up to a 130-112 Golden State victory over the Mavericks.
Dirk Nowitzki led the way for Dallas with 24 points. Chandler Parsons chipped in 14 but had to leave early in the third quarter. David Lee came in off the bench and finished with 16 points and 16 rebounds.
It’s hard to look at the game and say the Mavericks were really bad in this area. Dallas shot 44% and went 21 of 22 from the free throw line. They out rebounded the Warriors by four at 46-42. Both teams had 12 turnovers.
It was a good game for the Mavs. The only problem was they were playing a team that is chasing history this year. Golden State made 22 three-pointers in the game. It was one off the NBA record for the most made in a single game.
Klay Thompson finished with a game high 39 points. Steph Curry had 31 points, nine rebounds and 10 assists. With the loss, the Mavericks have dropped to below the .500 mark. It’s the first time since November 11 that they’ve been there.
Dallas has a home-and-home with the Portland Trailblazers and beginning Sunday. With 13 games to play, the Mavs need to figure out how to right the ship if they want to make the postseason.
