Mavs Looking To Stave Off Elimination
The Dallas Mavericks play host to the Golden State Warriors in Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals at American Airlines Center on Tuesday evening. The Mavs have their back against the wall, down 3-0 and facing elimination on their home court. They need to bounce back after a heart-breaking loss in Game 3, where they trailed by 10 after three quarters and came up short in the fourth, as they came up short with a late rally. Stephen Curry led the way with 31 points, 11 assists and five rebounds in the win. Andrew Wiggins had his best game of the playoffs, as he logged 27 points, 11 rebounds and three assists. Klay Thompson added 19 points, seven rebounds and three assists, while Kevon Looney totaled nine points, 12 rebounds, four assists and a steal. Meanwhile, Luka Doncic led the Mavs with 40 points, 11 rebounds, three assists, two blocks and a steal, as he continues to impress. Spencer Dinwiddie followed up with 26 points off the bench, while Jalen Brunson added 20 points, five rebounds and three assists. Doncic is averaging 34.0 points, 7.7 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 1.7 steals and 1.0 blocks in the series, and he may need his biggest game yet in order to give the Mavs a shot at keeping their season alive. On the other hand, the Warriors' multi-pronged attack may simply be too much to contain, as Curry, Thompson, Wiggins and Jordan Poole have all been filling it up through the playoffs.
