The Warriors have dominated the last match and stun them with a ravishing 112-87 victory over the utterly disappointed Mavericks. They managed to keep the dangerous outscoring Luka Doncic on the grasp, allowing him with only 20 points and came out on top in the tie. They already look to wrap off this tie as quick as possible and have expressed their intentions about winning the silverware. They will be wary of Jalen Brunson who is simply on a different level yet again after coming back from injury netting a handy 14 points in the last match despite his team’s loss and will be counting heavily on Stephen Curry and Andrew Wiggins to guide them to a 2-0 lead with a win on Friday.
The Mavericks on the other hand would be considered the favourites going in into this match who were brushed aside in the last game as they look for revenge. The Mavericks will be relying heavily on the performance of Luka Doncic and Jalen Brunson who will have to give their best for the game on Friday. Dwight Powell will also have to end his bad run of form and put his legs on the accelerators if they are to dream for the final.
Golden State Warriors Match Preview
Steve Kerr’s men are in a gallant form at the moment after the last match and will be looking to double their lead against their mighty opponents. They will be looking to dismantle the Mavericks defense yet again and Kevon Looney will have to cope up well to keep the Mavericks forwards at bay from scoring. With Andrew Wiggins finding his form, it won’t be astounding to expect great things from him tonight as well.
Dallas Mavericks Match Preview
Jason Kidd’s men will be looking to bounce back and level the tie and they will have to stop the inform Curry who keeps on marching ahead and can take the game away from them. Powell hasn’t been in a good form recently and will need to be supported by Reggie Bullock who also hasn’t yet lived up to his expectations. Spencer Dinwiddie will continue to trouble the Warriors’ players after netting 17 points on Game-1 after coming on from the bench and his team will be counting heavily on him. Luka Doncic will also look to keep his form going on and will be hungry for more points.
Luka Doncic has been hard to stop for the Warriors’ defenders in the last match as he picked up 20 points, with 7 rebounds and 4 assists and he will be looking to carry this run of form and take his team to the finish line on Friday.
Stephen Curry is in a stellar form and will continue to deliver for his team with his offensive abilities. He managed to pick up 21 points with 12 rebounds and 4 assists in the last game and it’s a no brainer to expect great things from Steph today.
Klay Thompson will be ready for proving himself when his team sets for Game-2 and will no doubt be hungry for points as he is one of the top scorers in the NBA stat-lists for this season and last match was no different as he picked up 15 points, with 5 rebounds and 4 assists
